    Pros

    Nottingham is a cheap place to live, expanding University, nice buildings.

    Cons

    No culture, systems (appraisal, review, flexible working hours etc.) are non-standardised and generally not very helpful, people more interested in promoting themselves then developing research with an impact.

    Advice to Management

    I would imagine in a University, staff are one of the biggest assets as they drive student numbers and satisfaction; might be an idea to treat them as such.

    Pros

    It is a great place to work surrounded by friendly and highly skilled people. The research in Nottingham has top notch technology and lab facilities. Good chance to participate in international conferences.

    Cons

    Nearing conference dead lines the work load can peak whereas other times can be very relaxed and may lead to boredom. If you're working in an isolated lab you might feel a bit isolated from the rest of the community, but that is personal choice again.

  9. Worked as a part-time Student Ambassador.

    I have been working at University of Nottingham part-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    Very flexible, work offered on a "sign up if you're available" basis to work around studies and lecture commitments.

    Managers/full-time staff very friendly and accommodating.

    You get to meet and work with a wide variety of people from many different places.

    Cons

    You'll sometimes find yourself waiting around, often I felt shift start times were too early compared to when events would actually be taking place. You may have everything setup with an hour to kill before visitors even started turning up.

  10. Support depends on department
