    Disapproves of CEO

    I worked at Commonwealth Scientific and Industrial Research Organisation for less than a year

    Pros

    Fantastic people and culture. Challenging and interesting work. being surrounded by some of the greatest minds in the world.

    Cons

    It ended (as internships do). I guess also that the top brass (in collusion with the government) are making some pretty terrible changes to the way it's run, such as a focus on productisation of research.

    Advice to Management

    department level and down were brilliant - no changes I can see that could improve the situation, but as I stated above, some nasty things may be on the horizon.

    Pros

    Freedom to explore individual ideas and interests when investigating ideas for projects. Good feedback from busy supervisors regarding project progression. Opportunities given to showcase project outcomes in seminar fashion.

    Cons

    Working culture appeared disorganized and unregulated at times. Lack of coherent structure in the organization, individual research groups work in isolation without communication, can be isolating at times.

    Advice to Management

    More efforts made to create a unified research environment including write ups of current projects undertaken by each individual group.
