Administrator (Former Employee) – University of Birmingham – 31 December 2017
The University has gone from a fantastic, motivating and warm environment to an unpleasant place to work. There is a nasty culture of management bullying and age discrimination practiced at this institution..
The supportive environment students are used to is being replaced by a generic and inefficient service with top heavy management who refuse to listen. If you voice concerns you are labelled a trouble maker and experienced staff are demoted and phased out.
Good annual leave allowance
There are no promotional opportunities for older staff.

Programme Administrator (Former Employee) – Birmingham, West Midlands – 5 October 2017
Can be exceptionally busy at certain times of year. The UOB is like working in its own town. Students can be very trying at times but can also be wonderful to work with, with different cultures etc. Deadlines can be difficult at times particularly during exam time and a good relationship with the academic staff is essential. The camaraderie can be wonderful. Though at times workloads can be unbalanced between staff which should be monitored more carefully.

Some areas are a little disorganised but overall not bad, though could be much better. There are many departments so some are run better than others. Some processes are very slow.
