    Negative Outlook
    Disapproves of CEO

    I worked at University of Essex as a contractor (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Very small centre campus and the building was for military use in the past.
    Very good teaching quality in Economics, Government, Psychology & Linguitics.

    Cons

    Very urgy central campus and the new shining chinese-stype toilet as the memorial theatre building. So, even the VC is inbelievably stupid. That's why Essex's ranking droped from around 30s to 50s in just less than a decade.
    Very very rubbish Essex Business School. Not matter research, teaching, administration, marketing/promoting the new B-School....
    Student satisfaction is diving.
