    I have been working at University of Warwick full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    Nice accommodation, nice facilities, brand new sports centre, quiet study environment, superb arts centre and pub.

    Cons

    Maybe being too quiet as in it is in the middle of nowhere. The price of food and everything looks expensive and the public transport towards the city centre is not always on time.

    Pros

    have various opportunities that worth to explore

    Cons

    personally think university needs to support students more in terms of doing sports, the entry fee for doing sports here is a bit expensive

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    i think they should thinking of spending more for student warfare, such as supporting students' activities, reduce the fees for doing sports etc.

    Pros

    Societies are amazing - ways to get involved and add to CV are manifold. Academic resources are also excellent, as is the learning grid and other study spaces.

    Cons

    University management sometimes feels out of touch, and it is an expensive place to live. Beyond this, there is also sometimes a feeling that the SU fights for students but the university cares more about conference attendees.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Make sure that service increases remain affordable to customers.

    I have been working at University of Warwick full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    There's so much to do, whether it's a sport activity, a gym workout or just socialising with friends in one of the many student bars, there's always something to do.

    Cons

    Some of the challenges involved in my job was the struggle with getting good results. This is fairly standard in the Chemical industry but challenging nonetheless.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Find out more what motivates the student/worker, and try and focus on assisting the fulfillment of these values.

    Former Employee - IT Tech in Coventry, England (UK)

    I worked at University of Warwick full-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    I enjoyed this job a lot - I was trusted to make decisions and work alone despite being on a relatively low pay grade. Not that the pay was bad, I was just fairly junior. I was treated respectfully by my superiors and the atmosphere was always one of camaraderie. Occasional overtime available which even my manager took in order to meet deadlines: he wasn't above getting his hands dirty. He was fairly young too which you can take as a good indication of possibilities for career advancement.

    Cons

    Minimal 'perks' : you get your salary and that's about it. I didn't find this bothered me to be honest.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    The coffee machine probably saved you more money (in employee time wasted walking to the shop) than it cost you in rent. Consider the consequences of your actions!
