good perks, otherwise sub-standard employer
IT 1st Line Technician (Former Employee) – Huddersfield – 3 May 2018
As an employer, Huddersfield Uni offers a lot of staff perks and a very good salary for the jobs provided. Unfortunately, they fail on just about every other aspect. The organisational structures are way too top-heavy, leaving not many people to do an awful lot of work, and there's a lot of micro-management that occurs as a result.
Communication has always been a major issue, and the general culture of the workers there is that, because everybody can be held accountable for their actions, that it's often better to not get involved in someone else's business, regardless of if you can help.
Would only recommend someone begins working there if they're close to retirement and can thus afford to shrug off the huge levels of crippling bureaucracy and deal with the stress that comes from working there.
