    Pros

    Enjoy constantly learning in a positive environment

    Reporting is heavy and pay and work life balance are poor

    Culture could do with some improvement and pay needs to be more structured and appropriate for the academic qualifications of staff

    No opinion of CEO

    I worked at Southern Institute of Technology full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    -Immediate team great hard working people -Support and encouragement of studying for professional development

    Cons

    -Management not interested in those beneath them -Very much a 'who you know' scenario -No recognition for the many staff that are constantly going above and beyond to keep things running -Cost cutting mentality at the expense of staff well-being -No reward for committing to upskilling/professional development

    Advice to Management

    Understand the jobs of those in your department. Take feedback and don't dictate when you have no idea what you're doing. Give recognition where it is due instead of passing off other's ideas as your own. Be professional and don't create petty office politics.
