    I worked at University of Manchester full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Large employer, so great work-life help, e.g. relaxation and sports sessions. Lots of opportunities for training if you're on the main campus (see below). Fairly well-paid. Generally a good place to work.

    Cons

    However, if you're based in an off-site team (not on the main campus), then you are extremely isolated. No time was made available for us to go onto the main campus to take part in the sessions or training and nobody from main campus every bothered to offer to come over to us.

    Also, very little opportunity for promotion in the area I was in. Be aware that you may have to move departments in order to progress, as people tend to stay in the same job for a long time and block the path upwards for other people.

    Advice to Management

    Involve off-site teams more in your training and programmes, please!
