    Former Employee - Student Ambassador in Exeter, England (UK)

    I worked at University of Exeter part-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    Very flexible, can work as much or as little as you want, get the opportunity to meet lots of people, good for honing communication skills, can work on some exciting events, get to learn more about the university

    Cons

    Be sure to apply for lots of work every month as it is unlikely that you will be selected for many actual jobs, can involve lots of time spent outdoors in inclement weather, sometimes the worst part can be the other ambassadors you work with..

    Pros

    Great campus with fantastic facilities. Belonging to a Russell Group university greatly enhances one's international profile.

    Cons

    Oppressive work environment, aggressive management, unrealistic workload, work-life balance is impossible, time for research is constantly being whittled away.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Treat research staff like the great researchers they are, not like factory workers who can be easily replaced.

    Disapproves of CEO
