    I worked at University College London part-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Great location, many facilities and incredible diversity

    Cons

    Can be difficult to balance work with studying.

    Management is at good levels, there is an optimum diversification and hopefully that wont change.


  2. "Event Steward"

    I worked at University College London as a contractor

    Pros

    Very flexible work, nice people to work with, pay was completely fine and on time. I must recommend this experience.

    Cons

    The only problems were some long times without breaks and ineffective preparation. We would often show up to work and have to wait 30-60 min before receiving clear instructions.

    Advice to Management

    There needs to be a clearer system of how to manage the stewards, also there should likely be fewer so as to provide more hours on a weekly basis.
