Pros

It is great working at the Exeter University Students' Guild as you get to have a direct impact on the positive experiences that the Guild provides for the 15,000 students studying at the University of Exeter. The Guild is a fun place to work and they are very flexible for building a good balance between your work and your studies / life. There is generally an openness to new ideas and bringing your own edge to a role, even if it's not always possible to accomodate every idea.

Cons

Most of the negatives of the work environment at the Students' Guild are common across all Student Unions. Being a relatively flat organisation with many small teams, it is hard to find opportunities for advancement within the Guild itself, as there simply are not many positions to move into. Some areas of the management structure are a little weak and I believe this to be due to the fact that many people are promoted to management positions in order to keep members of staff in the organisation (to provide advancement options), even if they are not yet suited to a management role. However, I believe that Exeter Guild is strong amongst it's peers in many of these regards, which makes it a great place to work if you are looking to work in the Student Union sector.
