    J'ai travaillé chez University of Leicester en Contrat Permanent (Pendant plus de 3 ans)

    Avantages

    Staff below senior management level are generally lovely.

    Inconvénients

    Senior management team is exceptionally poor. Communication is inconsistent, strategy is confused and implemented with little understanding or competence. The chaotic and increasingly cutthroat culture which has been created is unpleasant and completely unnecessary. Staff are left floundering by constant upheaval and changes in direction, making it almost impossible to complete even the most basic tasks. Experienced and knowledgeable staff are leaving in their droves only to be replaced by temporary/agency staff on minimum wage.

    Conseils à la direction

    Rethink your current scattershot approach and recognise the value of your experienced staff while you still have some left. Ultimately it’s the students who will suffer as a result of your ineffectual leadership - or to put it in terms that might strike a cord, lower NSS scores!

    Employé actuel - Lecturer

    Je travaille chez University of Leicester à plein temps (Pendant plus de 5 ans)

    Avantages

    The normal benefits of working as an academic - flexible hours, predictable routines, etc.

    Academic staff are friendly to each other.

    Inconvénients

    There is a push to increase student numbers to help the financial situation. The negative impact on staff is:
       - An ever-reducing quality of student. To increase numbers the entry requirements are lowered meaning we have to teach degree-level content to students that struggle to cope with it.
      - The Larger workload for marking, supervising etc.

    There is a large disparity in the pay and position of staff between departments and within departments. There are staff that have been around for a long time and were promoted during periods when promotions were easy. They clutter up the place on high salaries that block others. Teaching or Admin staff are treated like 2nd class citizens with no pretence that things should be any different. Leicester considers itself a research-led university and won't recognise that it's teaching and students support services that keep everyone in a job.

    Conseils à la direction

    I wouldn't put a sign highlighting which is the parking space for the VC given the unpopular nature of some of the decisions that are being made.
