    Good Technological Institution

    Lecturer In English (Former Employee) Wolverhampton, England (UK)

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

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

    Advice to Senior ManagementGo back to Black Country basics-

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend

    Over-formal and Administrative

    Senior Lecturer (Former Employee) Wolverhampton, England (UK)

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

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

    Advice to Senior ManagementLoosen up, allow enterprize and social breathing.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend

    Master Student

    Master Student (Former Employee) Wolverhampton, England (UK)

    ProsGreat 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 !

    ConsOne 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.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend

    An FE institute pretending to be a HE one

    Senior Lecturer (Current Employee) Wolverhampton, England (UK)

    ProsYou 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.

    ConsYou 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 Senior Managementsupport and value your staff - and let them know!

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend
