    I have been working at University of York full-time

    Pros

    The University is a really nice environment to work, there is a good working atmosphere and a supportive culture. Lots of opportunities for development

    There are no significant downsides of working at the university. In some departments there are less advancement opportunities than others but as a university as a whole it offer the chance to progress if desired.

    Advice to Management

    no advice - I think it is a well managed organisation. Well run and structured which offers a good customer experience for our students

    I have been working at University of York full-time

    Pros

    great people to work with, good atmosphere and good location. York is a great city. The offices vary, but are mostly very good.

    Cons

    slow pace, slow to make decisions, committee for everything. Trey anything new and you are challenged constantly by academic staff trying to make point.

    Advice to Management

    Embrace change, look at apprenticeships and widen participation before you get left behind by other universities.Being in the RussellGroupwill mean nothing if you don't.
