A cog in a wheel
MMU is a hornets’ nest of office politics in management & a merciless slog for everyone else. Working here left me with severe burnout & clinical depression.
Pros
Ordinary colleagues are lovely
Cons
Insane pace of work for everyone & idiotic game playing in management.

Seems that if you arent a teacher or a management you are trod on and not looked after
Seems that if you arent a teacher or a management you are trod on and not looked after and are the first to be sacrificed. Even if you have worked there for years.

Demanding and fast paced
A customer facing role with technical and maintenance aspects.
The hardest part of the job is dealing with customers who have lost equipment, hadn't realise the value of the equipment and are expected to reimburse the university for the loss.

The most satisfying part is seeing the expression on someone face when you have helped someone solve their problem.

Being part of a team is essential.

Modern, friendly, supportive, inclusive
I worked on a short term contract as a placement administrator. I was made very welcome, everyone was patient while I trained, the building and facilities were excellent and the management team supportive and friendly. My colleagues were all lovely and MMU is pretty good with flexible working - great for working parents. It was a friendly and professional environment and I liked it a lot. I left to pursue a different career path but I’ll always be grateful to MMU. I went there after working in a toxic, trade union environment where bullying was rife, and MMU restored my faith in fair and decent managers! I’d work for them again!

Poor employer lack of regard and respect for staff from senior management.
Very poor senior management people skills. HR do not hit statutory time constraints with regularity.
Distinct lack of respect or value for staff.

I would advice to seek an alternative employer.

The people in Manchester Metropolitan University gives us students to work in our own times and be flexible about it.
The environment is very chill and welcoming, while striving to help students to get to all the destinations that they needed to be in.

Disappointing
I worked in a department that made literally millions, geared towards customer service and welfare of resident students. An outside company ‘reviewed’ us for 18 months and decided profit was more important than students. We made MILLIONS. Whole department culled. Just like that. This happens every couple of years.
