Can be a great place to work
Plant Attendant (Current Employee) –  Cardiff City Centre, Cardiff12 November 2019
The University is going through some big changes at the moment and a lot of the staff are uncertain about the effect of these changes. Job security and the overall benefit packages is a big part of working for the uni. If you have the right team working alongside you then it's a great place to work....

GRADUATE TEACHING ASSISTANT (Former Employee) –  Cardiff15 July 2019
Cardiff University is an enjoyable workplace working as a graduate teaching assistant, they provide so many other opportunities such as training and learning. Management has encouraged graduate tutor to take any workplace environment and make them comfortable to work with. With flexible working hours for a graduate tutor, this has led that tutor to have ample time to not only focusing on their study but to gain working experience at the same time. A graduate teaching assistant has also been trusted to be part of module and seminar and markers in mid-term and final student's assessment. This is the most enjoyable and career-oriented workplace.
Pros
Teaching and learning support
Cons
limited time of work for graduate tutor

Hardwork and fun
Administrative Assistant (Current Employee) –  Cardiff, Cardiff4 July 2019
Working at Cardiff University can be hard work and you can do a lot of hours but it can also be a fun time.

Depending in which department you work will depend on what you can learn and what the management can be like. Some departments are a lot better than others.

My role as a postgraduate tutor was additional to my role as a PhD researcher. I taught first year undergraduate students for three different modules between 2015-17.

Working environment is not great
Research Associate (Former Employee) –  Cardiff City Centre, Cardiff16 January 2019
No team building activities, the working environment is not great since its lack of basic facilities such as tea room, kitchen, and communal areas. There is also a severe lack of communication. Very minimal social interactions in a typical day at work, which is good to get work done, but not so good for mental health in a long term,
