Good work life balance , poor management culture
Good work life balance , poor management culture. Not much transparency from senior management and a number of people in positions of authority with little experience or skill to carry out role. A once great place to work at risk of changing for the worse.

Institutionalised
I have worked here for 19 years and made many lifelong friends, however there is a certain work culture that I do not like for example the appraisal system is not a fair system and the same people do seem to be rewarded over many other capable people. There is a one rule for one kind of culture and if your face fits then you are ok.

Great place for a PhD
Wonderful institution for research. Research topics are interesting and PIs are passionate scientists whose work has real impact. I received plenty of guidance and support during my time here.

Competitive research environment
I was working at University of Nottingham for 4 years working in Pharmaceutical site research and I would not consider to go back to the same site as the work environment is so competitive and it doesn't provide a good work/life balance. I would definitely not recommend to my close friends any similar jobs that I had previously .

Horrid place
Being friends/friendly with the right people gets you ahead at UoN. Support never offered from the appropriate people. Having to take on higher level responsibility and training my own supervisors with zero support or thanks. Promotions blocked by senior managers. People with shocking knowledge and massive amounts of incompetence are in management levels positions which is worrying. Spent far too much on a central records project which was overfunded and still incomplete.
Pros
Evening and weekends free.
Cons
Life draining. Work with unintelligent people.

Gardening.
Easy work but the money reflects it. It should be a good place to work but management struggle with simple requests from staff. Holidays are very good. I would go back for a retirement job.

Always lacking staff
Never giving you the write amount of staff to do the job they wont done.
What they say is not what they do. The holidays are nice and stress levels are high. You are treated as second class people unless you are a part of the teaching staff

Leading the improvement of the University
Project integration to lead the university of Nottingham to be the best university in UK is the day to day main activity.

Maintenance, upgrade and support of the 400 Linux machines and the Solaris environment mainly consumes all of our time. Oncall services are required to keep working the key systems withing the university.


Nice place to work.

Hard work
Working as a housekeeping assistant at Rutlnd hall is extremely stressful. Understandably it has to be to the highest standards but they go over the top constantly nit picking at minor things.
