    Pros

    Very good job security, very very good holiday scheme the best in the area for education. Strong HR, I feel protected as an employee.

    Cons

    Not enough training for professional services staff, academics are not the only people that matter in education.

    Advice to Management

    Invest in more resources pro-actively. Not having enough staff in a very busy area will affect how well we perform.

  3. Great place to work

    Quite far to travel out to Falmer, big institution means some decisions take time

    Attempt to cut down on red tape, have a more robust training scheme for new recruits

    Pros

    The team. Working at Brighton University as a student ambassador you have the feel everyone is working together. The feel is collaborative not competitive. Everyone is hands on and working together.

    Cons

    Pay was almost always delayed, in some cases working an open day to not get paid for another two months. As a student these pays are heaven sent, but usually far too late! The pay system for student ambassadors needs reviewing and tightening.

    Advice to Management

    Offer supervisor roles to student ambassadors that put in the extra effort, make sure it doesn't go unnoticed and show appreciation of those willing to put in the additional work.

  6. An interesting environment in which to work. Some great colleagues and a diverse student body.
