I have been working at Monash University full-time (more than 10 years)

Pros

A large teaching University with various career opportunities. Plenty of really clever people to stimulate and collaborate with.

Cons

Being large it has an unwieldy bureaucracy. Recent improvements have been made but more could be done. It is a disadvantage not to be on the main (Clayton) campus, due to the inevitably uneven distribution of facilities and resources. For pure research it's not as good as the large research-only institutes (eg The Walter and Eliza Hall Institute) which have the facilities are resources to fully support world-class research and accelerate your career.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Less emphasis (and fewer $$) on management/bureaucracy, more direct material support for academics and researchers.
