Interesting
There are some lovely people working with the security team but also some that are less lovely. It is well paid for what it is but the job can be repetitive and dull. It can also be fun though.

A great place to work
Plenty of advancement opportunities. Friendly and helpful managers. Flexible working. Fair pay and job security. Plenty of side benefits. Only left due to health issues of a family member.

Relaxed student job
They offered me a relaxed lab assistant job which I could use to work around my studies. I enjoyed it and the manager was very nice and helpful. Good experience.

adequate employer
working here was fine. they pay on time, they tell you what is expected of you, etc.

as with all large employers, some of the management policies and admin systems can be a source of frustration. but all the close colleagues were ok.

Programme Administrator
Stressful, but slow at times. A lot of people working there generally didn't know what to do or what was going on. A lot of guess work it seemed! It was difficult to get trained in the area I worked as people didn't even know what to do either.

Absolutely awful, hopelessly organised constantly chasing pay, AVOID
Nothing, absolutely nothing is well organised in Newcastle University, I've been bounced about as casual staff with no idea what I'm meant to be doing on the day and virtually no training. HR have little to no respect for people working casually there and the system to get paid correctly is woeful.

Flexible workplace
Professional services felt a little unsteady, a lot of movement of people and a lot of staff on fixed term contracts. Management is ok, but it often feels like every decision has to go through several loops. On the plus side, the holiday entitlement is good and they are very accommodating and flexible.

Fun Workplace
As part of my job I had to take part to open days organized by the university for potential students. My job was to give them a tour around the campus and some of the university accomodations. Also I had to answer every question that they might had
