Pros

The University of Reading is a very organised University that offers a variety of jobs with competitive pay. Depending on the job, you are able to progress quickly to higher levels of authority.

Cons

Staff turnover is quite often high at the University of Reading. Interviews are fairly gruelling due to many applications from students.

My experience with the leadership at the University of Reading was a positive one. Management are quick to let you know if you have done well and are very helpful in making sure you achieve the best you can.

    Pros

    If you like a more laid back life it's good, easy to not do a lot.

    Good research ratings and lots of funding!!

    Cons

    Promotion through long service, good chance of your dept. being closed if it doesn't 'perform'.

    Advice to Management

    Take a better look at all those personal domains of power...just because you bring in a lot of funding doesn't make you a manager!

    I have been working at University of Reading part-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    An entire building of 20+ applied finance faculty with a famous lead professor (whose textbook most of us use) and incredible data assets based on 108 terminals and the ICMA sponsorship, lead by an individual who started himself as assistant and has truly created a family like atmosphere

    Cons

    While the Henley Business School is Top 10 in UK and has lots of outreach events and a research active faculty, the university leadership once in a while comes up with me policy ideas that are not necessarily conducive to research intense institutions ...

    Advice to Management

    ICMA Centre: keep on doing an awesome job / Henley Business School: nudge all disciplines to create world leading output in research and/or impact / UoR: give HBS more autonomy
