The Institute of Fundamental Sciences is not a Science center, full of politics.

I worked at Massey University

Pros

If you absolutely love sheep and can't find anywhere else to work, it's a wonderful place.
The surrounding natural environment is probably it's best quality.

Cons

Science takes a back seat to politics quite often. Poor funding and lack of useful help for students are also not the best qualities.

Advice to Management

Try and focus more on real Science, and give voice to both students and publishing professors involved in actual science.

    Pros

    Very pleasant working environment, fosters collaboration. Decent benefits even for the contractual employee. Trust based system in managing employee shifts, and time-offs.

    Cons

    The only con during my short tenure of employment was the fact that they were only taking on contractual employments. I would have stayed if offered a permanent role.

    Advice to Management

    I think allowing IT Help Desk personnel to rotate between functional departments would allow the unit to function much better as it will enable them to see the big picture.
