    Pros

    Very LGBT friendly
    Decent office space and IT support
    Most teaching spaces are level access
    Campus is fairly compact
    Students that are willing to engage in creative teaching

    Cons

    Poor IT in classrooms
    Virtually impenetrable workload model
    Very poor teaching support and preparation time
    Huge administrative workload
    Poor administrative support for academic staff
    Difficult to change curriculum even where changes are needed
    Disproportionately large bureaucracy - even for the HE sector

    Advice to Management

    Reduce the unending bureaucracy. Work out organisational priorities and values and act in line with these, rather than attempting to do everything all at once. Consider actually using the motivation theories taught in the business school with staff, rather than command and control style of management which works poorly with a professional workforce.
