I worked at University of York full-time (more than 3 years)

Pros

Highly-ranked University, Excellent campus & facilities, beautiful city.

Cons

Not all academic staff up to high standards. Lack of funding and future career prospects. Continuous focus on writing-up as many as possible EU or EPSRC funding proposals without considering scientific quality.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

The review processes for academics and researchers are useless. People complete the every year, but no action is ever taken out of them. The management should make use of them to improve the quality of teaching and research.

    I have been working at University of York part-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    Great location, doing great work for students, good work life balance. Nice working atmosphere and a great team.

    Cons

    The University doesn't always get it right - sometimes people seem to be very highly paid and it's not always clear that this is good value for money.
