    Pros

    Truly multidisciplinary research, at scale, and at the cutting edge. Very flexible in terms of leave and leave without pay etc, but bizarrely picky about working from home.

    Cons

    There is an amazingly efficient rumour mill at CSIRO. If only communication from senior levels down could work as well.

    Advice to Management

    Do a better job of managing change and reorganisations.

    Interview

    Phone interview
    It's pretty relaxing
    ask about previous project experience, interest and motivation
    Also asked whether I want to pursue a PhD after this.
    The interview is 30 minutes.
    The research scientist is quite busy so it's a quick one.
