I worked at University of Melbourne part-time (More than a year)

Pros

fruitful collaborations
most things on site but separated by walks through nice surroundings
easy to talk to students, lecturers, and co-workers

Cons

harder for international people to compete for jobs at times
geographically very distinct from collaborators in Europe and the US - makes international meetings harder

Advice to Management

ask workers about best plans to reorganize work spaces. They know more (if not best) what's needed where.

    I worked at University of Melbourne full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    The university is located in a great location with lots of restaurants and cafes around that area. Flexible work environment

    Cons

    The university's main goal is to make money and has unrealistic expectations on its employees. Lots of bullying originating from upper management. Just a job. In most positions here, don't even bother dreaming about a career pathway.
