    I have been working at University of London

    Pros

    Lots of freedom, but increasing pressure to publish and to teach. but that's in line with most universities

    Cons

    the city is quite expensive, and the london weighting doesn't cover the increased lving costs at all.

    Pros

    Good hours, benefits and great people. Really buzzing atmosphere. The range of activity going on is amazing, and being in Bloomsbury is inspiring.

    Cons

    HR, administration, stifling bureaucratic inefficiency. It's an institution without organisation, and too much leniency toward students who make it their business to be obstructive.

    Advice to Management

    Remove committees. Lots of them. Then streamline processes, make them usable and ensure HR do their job.

    Pros

    good benefits, salaries. The people you work with are very nice. The location is central london so it is right in the centre. you liaise with students and academics which is great

    Cons

    The work can be a bit monotonous. You have to answer phone enquiries all day long, send emails and the nature of the enquiries is more or less the same. I cannot think of any other Cons

    Advice to Management

    They are great


  10. IT IS A SAD PLACE TO WORK

    Pros

    Colleagues were okay and collegial. The location of the company is good (i.e. in Central London). The University of London has a good reputation.

    Cons

    As it is an accademic institution career options are very limited, i.e. one can only get promoted if the position becomes vacant which does not regularly happen.

    Advice to Management

    They should give better career options and different career levels. The pay is okay but not great compared to other universities, especially as London is an expensive city.
