Unfriendly overly formal culture
Bad fit for me. Students are always right as they are the bread and butter. Staff unhappy and not treated well. Overly hierarchical attitude compared with other universities where I've worked. Old fashioned technology.

Lovely, welcoming and fun workplace
I had a really great time working at the University of London. The office I was in was with a lovely bunch of people, and I enjoyed going in to work each day. There was lots of opportunity for personal development as well.

A changing challenge
Working for City as a Marketing Ambassador had many advantages. The first thing was the 0-hr contract. Therefore, I could decide when I want to work.
The work itself was well paid and very interesting.

Great way to build experience
Working as a student ambassador at City is a good way to build communications skills, improve team working ability and understand some basic principles of public relations. The organizers of events from the marketing department are professional and provide all of the necessary training to ensure you are well prepared to do the required job, and there is are regular opportunities for retraining to maintain high standards.
Pros
free lunches, freedom to choose which jobs you work
Cons
events come occasionaly only

Decent pay, not a great environment
I had a temp role, and the money paid well. However the shifts weren't as regular as first suggested and the work culture was not very welcoming. However I would still recommend it to people who are looking for temporary roles as long as they apply early.

Stable work but hit glass ceiling
It's nice environment as RHUL is ranked as the most beautiful campus in the UK. Transportation is convenient, around 45 min from London Waterloo to Egham. Colleagues are friendly and supportive. However, the management here is a bit chaotic and high staff turnover is common.

Great opportunity
Excellent work opportunity, great people. I worked only a few shifts as I was doing my MSc and it was worth getting involved. I would recommend this position to everyone interested in something like this.

Excellent Employer
Introduction of new technology and a new culture of work has improved the work/life balance immensely.
Part of a team providing administrative support to senior teams involved in the day-to-day running of a federal university.

A great deal of flexibility is now on offer and staff can work with a greater degree of freedom as long as targets and deadlines are met.

We are now assessed on productivity and not on time spent in the office/at a desk.

Hot desking can be quite difficult to get used to and the open plan nature of the work environment, but this opens up more possibility for working from home and from other locations.
Pros
Flexible working
Cons
Hot desking, but alternative spaces and home working possible

Debatable based on roles
Whilst I was there, there wasn't really a good job structure. You could get away with doing anything. It made me feel really bored a lot of the times which I did not like
Pros
Free fruit

A short term role
Having been ‘headhunted’ by the centre, I was only employed with them for a short time before a new Director was appointed who restructured the team
However within my time I was able to use and improve the experience I had already leant within the Education sector.

Whilst some events were away from home and evening based, there was a general good work/life balance
Pros
Gaining further knowledge and experience
Cons
A short term role
