    Current Employee - Lecturer  in  Leeds, England (UK)
    Current Employee - Lecturer in Leeds, England (UK)

    Pros

    Very flexible re. work balance. Lectures are not really expected to be there at their offices other than when teaching. If they can find some conference or research project, then they can actually live hundreds of miles away and show up once a month.

    Cons

    Clogged by paperwork. This is not an innovative or creative place. This is a bureaucracy. Everything done in here is about making sure the Uni is not sued. Staff are afraid of students and students show little interest in staff. Research is about publications, not about knowledge.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Get a vision that is inspirational. More publications, more students and survival is not a vision. It is a cop out.
