Pros

- the lower level staff are a good bunch, hard working and conciseness.
- very good salary with very little effort required if you can get a full-time post

Cons

the university is top heavy with an over-reliance on under paid part-time staff to provide the face-time with students. the full time academics are over-paid, elusive, only working 4 days a week, not appearing during the summer, with the concerns and development of the students the last thing on their mind, more important to them are taking on other job roles for more money and less hours.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

offload or re-focus the bloated management and actually give some recognition and security to the part-timers who do most of the actual teaching, rather than wasting tuition fees on management types who earn their hefty salaries forwarding emails around sat in their pants at home.
