    Disapproves of CEO

    I have been working at University of Manchester full-time

    Pros

    Great place ... close to city center, a good library, societies and friendly people. The University and research work is highly publicized through media such as news, internet articles, blogs etc.

    Cons

    Very bad teaching quality compared to universities of the same league. Even lecture notes have errors and exam evaluation contain is done badly. Bad treatment of researchers in engineering and sciences, including taking credit by senior lecturers and profs, bad treatment of international students etc.

    Advice to Management

    It is high time that the management took measures to improve standards!
