Edinburgh Napier University - Too many managers coasting | Glassdoor
  1. "Too many managers coasting"

    Former Employee - Administrative/Support 

    I worked at Edinburgh Napier University full-time for more than 10 years


    Decent pay, good work-life balance (leave for family, holiday entitlement, flexible hours


    Very top heavy in terms of senior management. A lot of managers seem to think they're the head of a huge multi-national rather than a medium sized modern university. Very poor options for career development unless you're seen as one of the "right"people - ability or potential doesn't come into it. Lower grade staff who do "just enough" to coast along and not stick heads above the parapet are favoured over those... eager to get on and change things.
