    I worked at Shiv Nadar University full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    1. Research environment and management's support in pursuing research
    2. Flexible work timings
    3. Academic freedom
    4. Beautiful campus with good facilities
    5. Great work space with all the facilities to work
    6. Decent salary

    Cons

    1. No policies for promotion, earned leave, etc.
    2. Too many decision makers
    3. Location
    4. Administration interference, instead of faculty control as happens in other academic institutions
    5. Too much freedom to students, sometime academics takes a backseat

    Advice to Management

    1. Please understand the ground realities and make policies accordingly. SNU is a place with great potential but turning blind eye towards the problems which can be easily solved makes things difficult for employees.
    2. Interference of administration in academics is too much, they should be a support department and not the one's who decide everything in the university.

    I worked at Shiv Nadar University full-time

    Pros

    The university started on a strong footing, with the kind of vision that higher education needs. A good faculty grouping came together and as curriculum was developed SNU gained in reputation and started attracting good students. Faculty felt an ownership and belonging to the place and the work and invested themselves fully. Class room infrastructure was good. There was a sense of support for organizing academic and extra-curricular events. The pay was competitive and the campus itself is calm and full of green spaces. Because of its lower fee structure (among private universities) and lots of scholarship to support students, the student population is much more diverse. Faculty also had some support in research in terms of funding to travel to conferences.

    Cons

    The vision and dream of SNU has been hijacked by the non-academic minded corporate style of management. There is now a culture of surveillance with biometric attendance for faculty and students and surveillance cameras everywhere. Instead of systematic hiring, as was the case, now hiring depends on the whimsy of the highest level of the management. Faculty are threatened if they teach a text or write about a subject that is not to the liking of the management. From feeling cherished and significant the faculty now know that they are dispensable. Female students have bio-metric entrance to their hostels and have a curfew even though it is a closed campus. The library holding is poor and nothing like what it should be in a research university that has been around for 6-7 years.

    Advice to Management

    Making fair and transparent policies that govern the university - hiring, sabbatical, study leave etc. - , non-interference from the funding family in the day-to-day functioning, academics-led management, and reviving the environment of trust (by removing the regime of surveillance) could help revive the vision and dream that was SNU. It might help to remember that SNU is not a company; the work and time of academics can't be computed as 9:00-5:00 Mon-Friday. Instead of imposing disciplinary rules on students involve them in figuring how to work with the problems of residential living in a middle-of-nowhere residential campus. Empower and enable the students and faculty to create an ethos and culture of actual learning that goes far beyond syllabi and exams. SNU had all of this in its grasp but chose to let it go.
