    Pros

    All the sick leave and lateness you can eat. Lots of holidays, flexible working hours. Easy location to reach in the city centre, good pension scheme.

    Cons

    Management are very autocratic, not interested in the ideas staff have. Too unionised, everything is a big deal. A slow moving behemoth run by a poor leader and his hand picked coterie of management staff. Too many changes started in one go. Finish one thing before you move on to another! Vice Chancellor's attitude is too bombastic with staff.

    Advice to Management

    Have respect for your workers, they are your #1 asset, believe it or not. Management treat them as a necessary evil. Don't kowtow to the unions so much, break the shackles. Be creative with incentive schemes, don't be afraid to reward success and react to underachievement.
