    I worked at University of Westminster

    Pros

    If you want to work in Higher Education, they tend to pay better than other London Higher Education Institutions. You are working with students whose enthusiasm is refreshing. Working in Central London is always nice - it's easy to travel after work, and the University has enough money to provide decent tools needed for work.

    You're working with academics, so it's not usually hard to find half-way intelligent conservation.

    They are a pretty good employer in terms of flexibilty, and benefits - public sector pensions are still nice to have, and stress levels are generally low.

    Cons

    There was very little leadership or accountability when work needed to be done. Up until recently was the pace of change was glacial, and is likely to continue to be relatively slow-paced, as many employees have been there a very, very long time, and are quite comfortable doing what they are used to doing.

    There is also the simple fact that you are a tiny cog in a huge machine, and there seem to be endless committees responsible for areas that really need a tightly focused team working on them, rather than people meeting once every few months.

    There is still a ;inferior ex-polytechnic' mentality throughout the organisation compared to other established, successful London Universities. This can be quite draining.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Manage performance better - there were very few targets to work towards, and reviews were few and far between.

    started on the position that was bit lower than my previous one , but within few years I moved up with better experience and with all gaps filled that I was not aware of !

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Listen to people more and do not take full trust to consultants who are just trying to get money from this institution.
