Lecturer, Postsecondary / Higher Education Reviews

Q: What is it like working as a Lecturer, Postsecondary / Higher Education?

Lecturer, Postsecondary / Higher Education in Manchester:
"Lecturer in Sociology"
Pros: The flexibility of academic work is a real positive about the job, as are the long holidays, and at least part of the time I get to basically pursue what interests me, which is excellent.
Cons: Increasingly the sector is becoming micro-managed by all sorts of measurement systems, rankings, targets, etc, and not only is this turning universities into businesses and 'service providers' rather than places of critical thought and learning above all, but it is counter productively eroding the very ethos that underpins the quality of UK higher education.

Lecturer, Postsecondary / Higher Education in Aldershot:
"Pay against hours worked equation is not so good"
Preparation and marking take a long time; you are not paid for this time as such, but expected to do it in your own time. Add in open evenings, marking, interviews, etc and there are a lot of hours work that you are not paid for but are expected to do. Compared to professional engineering, which I did previously, this is not great. The pay is also not nearly as good. Therefore the equation of "pay per hour worked" is fairly lousy in comparison. On the plus side, the year is well scheduled, you know roughly what you will be doing, and you get long holidays. You also get to spend most of your week away from the desk, in the classroom, which is a big plus. If I had the choice again, would I have left professional engineering to do this job? Probably not, but then again at least this job is socially useful.
