    Neutral Outlook

    I worked at Royal Melbourne Institute Of Technology full-time

    Pros

    Excellent benefits and salary, Great opportunity to progress

    Cons

    Academics are often brilliant in their field and are promoted to managerial positions based on this, yet they don't have management or leadership skills.

    Trying to get an academic to do anything even remotely outside of their normal position duties is basically impossible.

    Advice to Management

    Brilliant academics don't always translate to brilliant managers/leaders

    Positive Outlook
    No opinion of CEO

    Pros

    Quality working environment; excellent location within Melbourne CBD; proximity to State Library; support offered from fellow staff members and supervisors as new employee

    Cons

    University bureaucracy could be challenging to navigate; while some students were exceptional, overall academic achievement varied widely, raising some difficulties in approach to teaching; support for non-native English speakers could have been improved

    Advice to Management

    Particularly as international students become a more important university resource, greater support to bring cultural, social, and linguistic backgrounds could be increased which would likely increase student welfare, peer rapport, achievement, etc.
