    Neutral Outlook
    No Opinion of CEO

    I have been working at University of Limerick full-time

    Pros

    Good campus environment at times. Kemmy business school is internationally renowned and a great resource. The Library is also a great resource and quite impressive.

    Cons

    Unhelpful classes that use a paint by numbers approach. Lack of genuine help or guidance from various tutors and lecturers. Overall sense of elitism amongst the faculty. This facilitates a disenfranchised student body and complete lack of reliance on the resources given to students. " Why even bother to ask, when the answer I receive will be useless and unhelpful?"
