I worked at University of Bath as an intern (Less than a year)

Pros

Most of my colleagues were very passionate about the research they were conducting and hardly ever complained about the extra hours they often ended up doing. The university has a lovely campus with a pond and quite little paths, yet is about a 10 min bus drive from central Bath. The facilities are mostly modern, though this varies between departments.

Cons

Not really suitable for anyone who enjoys the excitement of a big city. Some supervisors appeared to be too focused on their work to provide meaningful assistance to new employees.

    Doesn't Recommend

    Pros

    The University has a good reputation, it sounds impressive to future employers. The location is great, there are new buildings, the students are smart.

    Cons

    Management is terrible, corrupt. I have been threatened by my line manager, and too scared to report him. There are loads of politics, loads of bad practice. Trying to get by with less than is essential. The food on campus is terrible, and closes during summer. This was all in sports/education.

    Advice to Management

    Learn how to listen, learn good practice, learn that it's not all about status, and to care about students. I would never recommend Bath to anyone - staff, student, or athlete.
