    "Former great University gone absolutely awful in past 6 years"

    StarStarStarStarStar
    Former Employee - Anonymous Employee 

    I worked at University of New England Australia

    Pros

    Region is a nice place to live

    Cons

    No direction, awful culture, terrible leadership (past 6 years), seriously bad bullying, no research interest, low standards. Successive recent executives with no real interest in the University or community, only them selves. Will destroy your career, especially if you are genuine good teacher and/or researcher.

    Negative Outlook

    I worked at University of New England Australia

    Pros

    - Gym on site - Good coworkers - if you can find a good silo away from central admin you don't really need to work much - good pay for low skilled positions

    Cons

    - Atrocious management - more than 50% of employees stated that workplace bullying was an accepted practice at UNE in two 360 reviews (conducted 2007 and 2010). - poor pay for mid to high skilled professionals - active bullying by senior management

    Advice to Management

    Watching management rotate year in year out I'm not sure advice would actually stay within the executive and directorship levels.
