    I have been working at University of Western Australia full-time

    Pros

    The relaxed atmosphere of the campus. The general collegiality of most (but not all) of the faculty and staff.

    Cons

    The politics and cronyism present in the administration are both transparent and coarse. The administration is very top-down and heavy-handed which can impede innovation and diminish morale.

    Advice to Management

    Should give greater democratic weight to the input of the faculty.
