    Pros

    Good academics occasionally visit
    Good location close to CBD
    Slightly less bureaucratic than state government

    Cons

    Steadily increasing bureaucracy at the expense of productivity.
    Full of lazy and uninspiring academics with low ambition
    Not a good place for ambitions people
    Excessive focus on advertising and manufacturing 'excellence' to attract foreign students
    Decades behind the cutting edge in research

    Advice to Management

    You can't run a University like McDonald's. Re-orient the focus on substance rather than profit. The performance management culture and glossy brochures scare away good academics.
