    Current Employee - Lecturer 

    I have been working at Cardiff Metropolitan University full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Cardiff Met are putting in place policies to try and enhance work place equality and work life balance. The balance/expectations seems better than other local universities. The campuses are nice places to work.

    Cons

    Expectations for new staff are different to those for old staff (new staff expected to teach more, bring in more money and generally be better workers). They're clearly trying to undertake a culture change but ignoring the elephant in the room which is old-style academics.
