I have been working at University of Sydney

Pros

Excellent work life balance at the research assistant level. Any higher and the level of competition in the academic world requires greater work.
The union has negotiated a great pay scale with excellent incremental increases. Annual step progressions also mean a higher income each year. However once you get to the top of a step there's nowhere to go.

Cons

Once you get to the top of a step there's nowhere to go! As a general staff it takes a lot to get a promotion or a reclassification.
Also, the Vice Chancellor is making huge staff cuts in the coming year so there will be greater dissatisfaction at the University.

    Pros

    It has a good weather. It is not too competitive. There is flexibility with your time job. Good balance with your life. There are good salaries.

    Cons

    No too many funds for science. There is no good comunication with your bosses. The city is very expensive and the houses are completely unafordable.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Should be a better career promotion at postdoctoral level. Should be a better free career training. Sould be a better acknowledge for the people working here, for example in the web page groups there are only information about bosses.
