    Pros

    the leave is good as the uni closes over christmas and easter but you don't have to take leave

    Cons

    there is a culture of bullying and HR do not take it seriously. they will back up managers and don't care about ordinary working staff who do all the work unfortunately. they care about students but not staff. and there is lots of racism which goes to the top.

    Advice to Management

    practise what you preach and hire better HR who are actually independent and not sure there to support managers who are racist bullies
