Minuses

What are the worst things about working at your firm?

2016

"I often feel that lectures could be more engaging, less content-based. More discussion and exchanging different interpretations of texts."
"Very far north! It's quite a long way away from a lot of my home friend's unis."
"Societies aren't supported as much as they could be."
"Library is always too busy to work in."
"Not enough computers, the union is a bit soulless."
"City feels overrun with students. Lack of good bars and pubs, city is built on its clubbing nightlife rather than bars."
"The gym isn't very good."
"Ricky Road accommodation is nice and cheap, but people still have to fix things and not put it off because it's getting demolished."
"Can be overly focused on social life rather than academic achievement and job prospects/hunting."
"The first year accommodation that is available to undergraduates isn't very good."
