    I worked at London Metropolitan University full-time for more than 10 years

    Pros

    Although once a great place to work (pre-2004), in recent years, hard to identify any positives at all

    Cons

    Incompetent management of dubious integrity, incapable of discharging basic managerial responsibility. Culture of bullying actively promoted by senior management and HR. Long term financial mismanagement has led to endless redundancy rounds, involuntary demotions and extensive use of zero hours contracts (and hourly paid lecturers receive truly appalling treatment). Many building closures and lack of investment has... led to a steep deterioration in the quality of facilities. Avoid like the plague.

    I worked at London Metropolitan University full-time for more than 10 years

    Pros

    Friendly place near Liverpool street station so from Essex good commute. Bloomberg facility was fun to teach. In the earlier years plenty of opportunity to travel with work. India, Pakistan, Vietnam, Turkey, Qatar.

    Cons

    3 years of section 118 redundancies. Bad feeling between staff and management after winding down of research and business division.

    Advice to Management

    Try to get feel good factor back and focus on increasing revenue as well as costs. Corporate governance was an issue with the government.
