    I worked at Commonwealth Scientific and Industrial Research Organisation

    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.

    I worked at Commonwealth Scientific and Industrial Research Organisation

    Pros

    CSIRO is capable of multidisciplinary research at scale, more so than university organisations, though that may change in the future.

    Cons

    There is a portion (not dominant but also not negligible) of staff who have peaked in their careers who are no longer engaged in research as actively as they are engaged in bemoaning change in CSIROs processes and structure.
