Neutral Outlook

I worked at University of Kent full-time (More than 5 years)

Pros

Great connections and networking amidst a creative inspiring atmosphere.

Cons

The Rochester campus is very inaccessible if the lift is out of order as it's built on a very steep hill and has many many stairs!

Advice to Management

Spend some time at ground level with the staff who are in direct contact with the students on a daily basis to understand the issues that need addressing.

    Pros

    Nice facilities and a beautiful campus. The university offers good opportunity for other training. The other staff are generally friendly. Nice location in Canterbury.

    Cons

    Poor management and even poorer communication between departments. People are often stuck on minute details they forget about the person and circumstances involved. All about who you know not how you perform. Many times people seem incapable of doing anything that isn't directly within their job description nor do they point you in the right direction.

    Advice to Management

    Work on communicating between departments. Train your staff in customer service and in how to find out information even if outside of their job description.
