    I have been working at University of Sydney as a contractor (Less than a year)

    Pros

    This is coming from a data analyst's perspective:
    * Everyone, minus the odd ego or two in 'upper management' is very friendly.
    * If they can, people will go out of their way to help you.
    * Close proximity to a very wide variety of food outlets/restaurants.

    Cons

    * You WILL be confused by the frequent workarounds necessary to pull pretty basic data, especially if you are from a corporate background.
    * Systems are very faculty-centric (reflecting historical practice) and are hence duplicated. Good luck trying to stitch data together from different faculties!
    * IT service is pretty bad, considering the size of the Uni. It's not their fault though, their budget is tiny.

    Advice to Management

    Give the leadership of the plethora of internal reviews to people who are actually passionate about making real change to the University - certain deputy vice-chancellors, for example...
