I worked at University of London (More than 3 years)
Salary, holiday entitlement, to you get a lunch break, nice location in central London.
Hostile environment, the low kind of people you have to work with, positive discrimination is condoned and promoted, harassment and unfairness. They favour ethnic minorities and gay people as most of the trustees and top management either belong to these groups or have strong connections to them. For most of their jobs a degree was a prerequisite which is fair enough for a University to give opportunities to graduates so stale is the job market for this category. However, since most people at mid management are uneducated working class who got a lucky break for being connected to the trustees and top level of management, they lowered the education requirements to fit these individuals. Because of their connections these individuals feel they can do what they want and get away with it. They have HR at their feet. I was bullied and harassed out of my job years ago. This haunts me to this day as I believe the same people have been hindering my job prospects since. I don't have any chance left. They can count this as their main achievement. I am sure it would make them very proud.
Advice to Management
Mid management is the problem. Most of them are bullies who stir their employees against each other and don't deserve the position they are in.
I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at University of London (London, England (UK)) in April 2017.
A 45 minute excel test followed by roughly 1 hour long interview. The three women that interviewed me were all extremely nice and made me feel very calm and settled. They were chatty and made the whole experience feel so much more relaxed. I got very good vibes from the panel, they were engaging and they seemed to take a real interest in what I had to say.
