    Nice experience to work with prominent researcher in my field

    PhD Student (Current Employee)
    Nottingham, England (UK)

    Prosworking with the leading researchers, the quality of teaching, nice friendly atmosphere, global recognition of the university, availability of stuff members to help.

    ConsNot particular challenges I have faced so far. The only thing I want to mention is that you need to work hard to catch up with the high level of standards if you come from other universities (particularly from abroad). But it is completly normal for the university with a reputation, and I would not imagine the other way around to comprimise the quality of teaching to attract more students from abroad.

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

    A fantastic place to work with highly talented colleagues set in a beautiful campus

    Administrative Assistant (Current Employee)
    Nottingham, England (UK)

    ProsOpportunities seem endless in this place with so many chances to; undertake professional development through the number of courses available to staff, take part in volunteering activities whilst being able to attend lectures on a vast array of topics. There's always the chance to get involved in something if you are willing to contribute.

    ConsIt's a very large organisation and so can sometimes feel like you are lost in the middle of it all, perhaps not knowing where to turn if you are looking to undertake a task. It can be a little disorientating at first with so many different schools, departments and teams.

    Advice to Senior ManagementFlexible working opportunities need some form of standardisation across the university, in some instances it seems as though the opportunity to work from home on occasion is reserved for a select few despite technology being readily available to allow this.

    Rewarding and Challenging!

    PhD Researcher (Current Employee)
    Nottingham, England (UK)

    ProsFlexible working hours, great facilities and overall fantastic colleagues.

    ConsBureaucratic process can stand in the way of some work and the safety training sometimes is a joke. Especially for a trained scientist, it can be a bit below the bar.

    Advice to Senior ManagementConsider a cap on the number of PhD students a supervisor can have and limit them to ONLY projects they are not out of their depth with. Less they leave the student on their own when it comes to their work.

    Very nice work environment

    Anonymous Employee (Former Employee)
    Nottingham, England (UK)

    ProsGood management and always surrounded by intelligent and helpful colleagues

    Relaxed but efficient working environment

    A place where you can really be yourself and speak your mind

    ConsLack of challenge (if you want an easy life, then this will not be a problem)

    Very local job and few opportunities to travel internationally (if that's what you like)

    Advice to Senior ManagementStaff training is sufficient but after work gathering is inadequate.

    Postgraduate students are much less actively involved in student union and university affairs and that is a problem that may need further attention.

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend
