    I have been working at NICTA full-time


    Good research environment; work-life balance; strong networking opportunity. In its short lifespan, NICTA has assembled a strong group of researchers. NICTA today has several well-cited and respected researchers in its fold, a significant change from its early days when pretty much anyone could have worked at NICTA! NICTA has the best ICT output (research, innovation, startups etc) in Australia. The quality of ICT research & innovation is significantly better than at the Australian universities.


    NICTA's funding situation! NICTA was setup as a centre for excellence in Information Communications Technology in Australia. The INRIA (France) blueprint was used. Unfortunately, for a company with excellence & research as the driving forces, funding guarantees are necessary, which the various federal governments never provided. Funding has been via 4 year tranches, and with such short leash its not surprising that NICTA administrations priorities keep changing depending on the direction in which the wind is blowing!

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    1) Too much emphasis on short-term wins!!! Stop selling your startups to big US corporations for few small bucks. Work on transformational technology; build companies that will work through the startup cycle and eventually get listed on national/international stock exchanges.

    2) You cannot win the consulting battle with the likes of Deloitte and Accenture. Focus on high-quality research and build the truly innovative companies of the future.
