    I worked at NICTA full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Some really brilliant people work here, who have good ideas applicable to many fields of research and development in the national interest.

    Cons

    Most employees have divided loyalties: their university and state figure importantly in their decisions, but the central admin has poor relations with most of these entities.

    Advice to Management

    Work more closely with influencers at the universities and their other finders.

    I worked at NICTA full-time

    Pros

    There were interesting problems to work on. Working there was a nice mix of academic research with some freedom in shaping the direction of the research and being able to apply the research to practical problems.

    Cons

    Company politics were terrible. Promotions and budget allocations were highly political processes with favoritism and back stabbing.

    Advice to Management

    Things have apparently changed a lot since merging CSIRO, so my experiences may not be relevant anymore.

    Pros

    A very nice place to work surrounded by intelligent and humble people. Lots of flexibility.

    Cons

    With the CSIRO merger things have not remained same. And a lot of procedure have now slowed down progress and lowered employees' morale.

    Happy employees are the key to success especially in a research environment where they can get things the way they prefer.
