I have been working at University of Manchester part-time for less than a year

Pros

Incredibly flexible hours, competitive rate of pay, a 'customer' facing job which gives a feeling of satisfaction when you have helped to give people access to vital information that could shape the rest of their future.

Cons

The only real con to the job is that the University are not obliged to give you any hours and if you have a requirement for a lot of hours, this would not be suitable. On the other hand, if like me you need flexibility, this is a pro because you don't have to work at all if you don't want to work any shifts.

    I have been working at University of Manchester full-time

    Pros

    Great place ... close to city center, a good library, societies and friendly people. The University and research work is highly publicized through media such as news, internet articles, blogs etc.

    Cons

    Very bad teaching quality compared to universities of the same league. Even lecture notes have errors and exam evaluation contain is done badly. Bad treatment of researchers in engineering and sciences, including taking credit by senior lecturers and profs, bad treatment of international students etc.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    It is high time that the management took measures to improve standards!

    It is one of the leading universities of UK, and the student experience is just mind blowing.

    The Market area comes inside the university, its better if its an only student area.
