Good place to work, friendly staff, great memories.
Catering assistant Full time. (Former Employee) – Sighthill Court. – 4 July 2019
I worked at Edinburgh Napier University for 12 years in the catering department, and I found it an enjoyable experience, staff were friendly, on going training, you are provided with a uniform. Lots of different skills to learn if you are willing. Every day is different, I made some lasting friendships, and will take this with me.
Good salary, great friends, good working atmosphere.
Administration Assistant (Former Employee) – Edinburgh, City of Edinburgh – 18 April 2019
Toxic office environments, back stabbing and non stop gossips and clique colleague work culture which can be intimidating- especially in Merchiston Campus. Not inclusive! .Very hostile atmosphere and the managers will treat you like you are a child and will favouritise those individuals they are friends with instantly. Intrigues, ganging up against someone they don like and black mailing to drive you insane until you pushed out to leave. HR does not want to be involved- indicating you are on your own- not happy just leave! You will be dragged into participating in workplace conversations that leave you drained of optimism. When you are surrounded by people who feel negatively about your workplace, it’s difficult to remove yourself from the spirit of negativity You will complain to your family about work each night. Managers even get clicky with certain staff members and don't act professional and happy to discuss colleagues personal issues out loud. If you complain about bulling - no support at all- you will be blamed instead! . Incredibly Low morale! Definite favoritism amongst staff. Not a good company to work for, if you are disliked! If you care about your sanity and health- avoid at all cost!
Lecturer (Current Employee) – Edinburgh, City of Edinburgh – 15 January 2019
Worked here for a long time. Other roles are okay but academic roles are 60 hours per week and are so short staffed that there are delivery of core service issues and so you work weekends, all unpaid. Not easy taking holidays etc. Lot of bullying to make this happen. Lots and lots of long term staff sickness that doesn’t Get covered, so you need to add it to your long list of tasks. More senior roles are very well paid and a lot easier but no real internal progression from lecturer level up. Or it typically takes 15 years. No staff room, no caring for staff, silent treatment and ghosting from colleagues and the various administration systems don’t really work. Difficult to move on from career-wise. Very unhappy ship. Just go for the job if you are desperate. Non-academic roles are much better terms and conditions though.
School Operations Officer (Current Employee) – Merchiston Campus, Edinburgh – 7 January 2019
Edinburgh Napier is a really good employer; they care about their staff well being and work/life balance. There are some great benefits not least the pension contribution, gym access at Sighthill and the possibility of flexible working.
Lecturer (Former Employee) – Edinburgh, City of Edinburgh – 10 October 2018
I taught and supervised undergraduate and postgraduate students. I also carried out research in own areas of specialism.
The management had unreasonable demands that were going way beyond my contractual hours. I often received job security threats from the management. Work to life balance was particularly bad. Little job security despite that I was outperforming many of my colleagues.
