    No opinion of CEO

    I worked at London Metropolitan University full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Can easily go a whole day doing no work whatsoever. Overpaid for what you do. Money finally being spent on renovation

    Cons

    Everyone goes whole days doing no work whatsoever. A lethargic atmosphere. Seems the few good managers get the boot and the largely incompetent ones stay long term. Chicken and the egg situation of a bad university breeding bad students and tehn bad students talking down and bringing down the university.

    Advice to Management

    Leave. Employ better replacements.

    "Fermi agli anni '60, gli studenti scioperano, la direzione li ignora, gli accademici se ne vanno, neolaureati disperati per avere un lavoro prendono il loro posto,"

    Pros

    An easy job, too easy perhaps.

    Cons

    Terrible management, no room for progression, unorganised, institutional discrimination, racism, misogyny, sexism. A rather worrying place to work.

    I worked at London Metropolitan University full-time for more than 8 years

    Pros

    Colleagues (if lucky) are great as are academics.

    Cons

    Management is awful, especially the new one Hayriye. Absolutely awful. Only thinking of filling their own pockets with money regardless if the University is about to crumble.
