    Campus is fairly compact

    Cons

    Poor IT in classrooms

    Huge administrative workload
    Poor administrative support for academic staff

    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.

    I have been working at De Montfort University full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Good atmosphere and fast moving dynamic employer for public sector

    Cons

    Endless merry-go-round of senior management means alot of uncertainty at times and changes of direction, with alot of politics

    Advice to Management

    A bit of stability would go a long way
