    Pros

    Excellent career opportunities, resources and an atmosphere of enterprize and innovation. Was leading the charge into Enterprize as early as 1990.

    Cons

    Over-formal at times, too many screens, not serving the local community as much as it used to re. recruitment and community initiatives.

    Advice to Management

    Go back to Black Country basics-


  3. Over-formal and Administrative

    Pros

    Good resources and organisation, good brand, very good technologisation. Excellent digital library.

    Cons

    Over-formal cultural atmosphere, hypocritical management using huge state resources to fund an enterprize ethos. Too many screens and machines per student.

    Advice to Management

    Loosen up, allow enterprize and social breathing.

    Pros

    Great multicultural environment, colleagues from all over the world. Great teaching level - the lectures were very well presented. Many several resources for students and places for networking. Lovely ceremony for the graduation !

    Cons

    One of my modules seemed unorganised though (or many people replacing the module leader of the course). I think that happen because the module was just recently added to the curriculum.

    Pros

    You can still get an academic job without a PhD. You will get a cost of living and an scale increment every year, until you hit the top of band.

    Cons

    You can still get an academic post without a PhD - and it's just as well as there is very little chance of getting one while working there. New staff seem to be under a lot of pressure, older staff coast along without providing any support or mentoring. Promotion to the next band increasingly seems to be via dead man's shoes. There is no time or support to keep up with what's happening in your field so you quickly become out of touch.

    Advice to Management

    support and value your staff - and let them know!
