    EXCELLENT WORKING ENVIRONMENT !

    MBA Director (Current Employee) London, England (UK)

    ProsThe University of East London is a fast-changing environment. The Royal Docks Business School is rapidly growing both in terms of numbers and quality, and will soon scale rankings in the UK. Being in such a phase of change, UEL offers good opportunities to ambitious academics.

    ConsI do not recognize particular cons of working at UEL. My experience is extremely positive, and I moved to UEL after working for top Business Schools in the world.

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company

    Big potential but lack of cohesion and communication + politics kills everything

    Programmer Manager (Former Employee) London, England (UK)

    ProsBeautiful campus, nice facilities, money to grow and do well.

    ConsBe careful about what you say , to who you say it all the time. Highly political.
    Managers showed no support at any time, was left to take important financial decision without any training nor anyone to ask to and them was blamed for loss of money.
    No training despite the beautiful speeches of the HR department.
    Huge turnover at University level. In one year 5 main managers ''left''
    Schools are constantly fighting with central services to get things done.
    Huge workload for certain positions (massive extra hours) and few recognition from management in schools.
    Decisions from management tend to be very short sighted and respond to urgent need rather than careful planning which on the long term does not benefit.
    Many precarious part time positions and fixed term contract with promises to get extended or renewed that are unfortunately not kept in the end.

    Advice to Senior ManagementCut the politics and work closer to your employees to hear feedback from them and make things work. It is a huge loss of energy that could be used to produce beautiful things.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend
