    Pros

    Good part time pay for a student job and can fit it around academic commitments. While at university this job gave some work experience to put on the CV for future employers.

    Cons

    There are always events going on at the uni but the irregularity of the work can mean some weeks without work.

    Advice to Management

    There is not much in the way of management as it is a part time uni job.

    Pros

    they take into account what directions you want your career to go and do everything they can to help you achieve your goals

    Cons

    i genuinely do not have any complaints about the company, maybe the traffic getting off campus at night but his can't be helped

    Pros

    Great opportunities, great Engineering department, beautiful campuses. I really enjoy the general ambience of the university in terms of how the research area is moving forward.

    Cons

    I am not fond of the way in which researchers that have not made the jump to lecturing are short term contracted employees, job security is minimal, and it is rather de-humanizing.

    Advice to Management

    Better job security for postdoctoral researchers.

    Pros

    Made some nice friends and the leave allowance was good.

    Cons

    Extremely busy evironment and the procedures used are old fasioned. The IT systems haven't improved to keep up with the times ie module registration is still done the old fashioned way, as systems cannot cope with on line registration. HR look after the management not the admin staff. Was bullied by my Manager, who also lied, and I was not supported. Manager left for another job but was then re-employed and proceded to bully another member of admin staff who was also not supported.

    It's difficult to gain an upgrade. Employees on the same Level job do vastly different amounts of work, and hard work is no recognised.

    Advice to Management

    To look after the admin staff fairly,

    Pros

    The training was paid and thorough enough for the job. The pay itself was excellent for the work we were doing. I learnt a lot of skills there.

    Cons

    The job itself was not my kind of thing so I didn't enjoy myself - but that may have just been my own personal taste. I know others did enjoy it.
