    I worked at University of Newcastle (UK) full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Excellent holiday time, closure between Christmas and New Year, tuition perks, pension, lots of cross-university interaction, interaction with students.

    Cons

    I think it really depends on where you work--my unit in particular we were not treated the same as other units in our larger directorate--more supervision, less autonomy. My work-life balance was skewed very work-heavy, and ultimately is why I left the university.I think this was more unique to the Central Services than in the different faculties and schools.

    Advice to Management

    Unless your employees give you a reason not to, trust them! We were all hired because we are competent professionals, and after a trial period it would be great to just let us run with things (supportively of course!)
