Pros

Job security, manageable stress level, benefits for employees

Cons

Less pay than industry. Recent system implementation is terrible.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

In last 3 years lot of money has been spent on 100th birthday and rebranding (in form of changing logo and other things). Was it worth taking the trouble..now lot of buildings still have the old logo! It was not needed..what was necessary was more marketing to bring in more students.
Also new system from SAP was implemented..it feels all the money was not well spent..it didnt do much good..nothing works without training..and without exact steps..leaving everyone using the system frustrated...everyone complains..no one listens. Much better system could have been generated without outsourcing - with help of students and staff..it could have meant more time...but it would have taken into account user requirements rather than thrusting upon us the system SAP has done now

    Pros

    I am encouraged to conduct high quality research and engage in research driven teaching and given the resources I need to do so. As a mother of a young family, I have found my colleagues and managers to be supportive and flexible. And I love the new health initiatives which provide opportunities to stay fit.

    Cons

    We are under pressure to lower our entrance standards, which would only damage up reputation and require us to admit students who are not able to complete our courses. We have managed to argue for keeping our standards but this is only one programme.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep our standards high! We want to attract the best students.
