I worked at University of Leeds full-time for more than a year

Pros

For many people the university is typical of many stable academic institutions and will offer its non-academic staff a pleasant working environment, ample holidays and plenty of interesting activities when off-the-clock. All in all, the university treats its staff reasonably and most people seem happy.

Cons

Remuneration is definitely on the low side compared to working in the private sector, but this is typical of most universities. Only found out I had been 'opted out' of the pension a good while after the fact, without ever having been consulted. I was furious about this. Sometimes it can be tricky to get things to happen, especially with IT. Persistence and knowing where someone's office is can help when it gets too much!

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Look into why some people have been 'opted out' of the pension system involuntarily. It would seem to be a serious breach of the rules.
