    I worked at University of Melbourne full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Wonderful interacting with students - a lot of great staff.

    Cons

    Not always cohesion between departments which could lead to confusion for staff and students, especially with referrals. Also a tendency to instigate large policy reviews that didn't seem to go anywhere.

    Advice to Management

    Work towards treating casual staff better - there should be some professional development to support them.
