    Politics all over.. you would never know who is your friend and you is envious of you.. Ladies are promoted more than men.. so if you are a guy.. beware of politics..

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Have some proffessionalism, improve HR communication they are bunch of jokers and dont know how to do their job.. have some pitty on those who are applying to UniS.

    nice leafy campus

    Pros

    University of Surrey is a good place for starting your career but ...

    Cons

    But it may not be what you expect as progressive place for your career! There is not a fair system for recognising your progress or assigning privileges for a good work (who you know is more important than what or how you do)! I do not recommend it for a long term contract, it is a good place for starting your career and then you must move otherwise you will stay in the same level forever!

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Setting a fair point system to recognise good/bad or insufficient works!

  10.  

    A good place to work, with loads of great people. Nice but expensive area to live.

    I worked at University of Surrey

    Pros

    The people and the help that is always on hand. Also there is a degree of flexibility depending on your role, to work from home. As long as the work is being done, not a problem. Quite a few training courses avaliable on a regulary basics.

    Cons

    It is important to bear in mind that Guildford is an expensive area to live. however, its a nice place, and can comute to London easily.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    I like review process, allows you to know where you stand and to indentify areas of improvement.
