    I have been working at University of NSW

    Pros

    Sufficiently intellectual community with majority of good people. Lots of modern academic resources and easy accessibility. Availability of lots of teaching aids

    Cons

    Probably more reduction of red tape would be nice. Some schools clearly dont have the funds to undertake important projects

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    I think some faculties are understaffed. I would like to see the university take adequate steps to address its downslide in the Times higher education ranking to at least what it was 5yrs ago.

    I have been working at University of NSW

    Pros

    Good work/life balance
    Good atmosphere
    Responsibility and freedom
    Generally good and interesting people to work with.
    Generally good facilities and exciting projects.

    Cons

    The academic organisation is often lax. The sprawling bureaucracy makes simple tasks (such as purchasing) into a serious run-around. There is also little to no communication between the departments, meaning that resources are under utilised.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    More communication between departments would streamline a lot of things. The also should sort out the financial system, it's a mess
