    I worked at University of Melbourne full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Wonderful interacting with students - a lot of great staff.

    Cons

    Not always cohesion between departments which could lead to confusion for staff and students, especially with referrals. Also a tendency to instigate large policy reviews that didn't seem to go anywhere.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Work towards treating casual staff better - there should be some professional development to support them.

    I worked at University of Melbourne

    Pros

    Great location and better than average salary and benefits. Emphasis on research and hosting academic conferences that further international scholarly interchange. Select group of students who make teaching a joy.

    Cons

    Little input from academic staff on many important decisions, which tend to be made at the executive level by managerial types. Top-down style of governance is not appropriate for a research university of this type.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    More transparency in decision making, more involvement of academic staff in formulating and finalising governance-related decisions.
