    Doesn't Recommend

    Pros

    Lovely location , poor management allowed me independence and autonomy - by default !!
    Encouragement to bring in income from external sources.

    Cons

    Emphasis on glowing P.R. to the external community, despite poor academic standards expected of students - staff have encountered difficulty in allowing student failure rates to fall below levels acceptable to Management.

    Advice to Management

    Communicate with academic staff. Don't keep siding with administrators and ignoring overload of student contact hours required by teaching timetables , at the same time pushing staff to produce "research" - of a quality very suspect....

    I have been working at Edinburgh Napier University full-time

    Pros

    Decent money for the work, staff are friendly enough

    Cons

    4 x 12 hour shifts, then 4 days off - lot of time. It does bring the wage up, but there isn't much to do

    Advice to Management
