Discuss changes with people on the ground rather than making changes that make no sense to the everyday running of the company

    I worked at University of Leeds

    Pros

    A good amount of flexibility of hours and working practices can be found. It varies from department to department, however there is a definite emphasis on trying to get work life balance right, if not always communicated that well.

    Cons

    Slow to make decisions, just because you are an academic doesn't make you a good manager or good at setting strategy for running a large organisation.

    Did I mention slow???

    Politics.....and ego's, may be not that different from corporates after all!

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Get out there and work in industry and bring your experience back, or at least stop hiding from it.
