    Pros

    - university campus environment - close-knit community - generous employee packages - good transport links

    Cons

    - bureaucracy - many of the workers they are used to working at a public sector pace and therefore it can be hard to get things done quickly - the university suffers from a lack of communication between departments... and therefore it can be hard to utilise the benefits of so many intelligent individuals in one place.

    Advice to Management

    - create better communication between departments - encourage cross-department interactions - weed out the lazy and slow workers.
