A place where people are passionate and committed but poorly served by the low level of leadership and management.

Anonymous Employee (Former Employee)

ProsGreat location; pleasant, loyal and able colleagues.

ConsSadly and institution long past its prime and living on a (declining) reputation. The take over by University of Reading has not worked due to 1) no strategy for combining the best of both places and 2) very poor HR decisions (wiping out all the small, but important staff legacy working conditions at Henley) 3) absent or incompetent management/leadership skills. A case of 'physician heal thyself'!

Advice to Senior ManagementStart practising what (your programmes) preach - consult your staff and develop a strategy that inspires and makes sense; put 100% more effort into coaching and bringing together staff/teams; stop wasting time on trying to win business which has more to do with vanity than business sense
