Some good dedicated lecturer let down by bullying and poor management structure
Lecturer (Current Employee) –  Northampton, Northamptonshire14 May 2019
Used to be a good employer but in recent years has become increasingly bullying particularly towards lecturers. Academic standards have declined, bums on seats is more important than academic rigour and standards. Workplace culture is blaming staff rather than accepting that there are shortfalls in management. Move to new Waterside campus has led to a poorer student experience.
Pros
New campus and environment, committed enthusiastic lecturers
Cons
Poor management and bullying attitude towards staff. Blame culture.

Not here long enough to make a review. I left because the course wasn't the right thing for me. Just a normal university. Night life at the time was great

Student Ambassador (Former Employee) –  Northampton2 January 2019
Works well around University as one gets to choose their shifts. They have amazing support staff and they will make sure one is comfortable in the roles that they are working. It is also very varied work, so you could be working something completely different every shift you do.
Pros
Super supportive
Cons
May not get shifts due to amount of people looking for work that month

language teaching

Depending on the department, nice place to work. Language department suffered with government cuts, but a good marketing and promoting languages and related subjects could still be a viable option to retain the reputation and improve provisions for students.
Pros
good working environment
Cons
it is not all about money

Good daily working environment due to many great colleagues. However management is generally poor and there is little opportunity for progression. Pay was also low compared to other universities.
