I worked at University of East London as a contractor
Pros – Beautiful campus, nice facilities, money to grow and do well.
Cons – Be 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 Management – Cut 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
