I worked at University of Leicester full-time (More than 3 years)

Pros

Staff below senior management level are generally lovely.

Cons

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.

Advice to Management

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!
