    Neutral Outlook

    I have been working at Griffith University full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    Friendly people and environment. Flexible and family friendly work environment.

    Cons

    Contested market position means a cap on growth. Limited formal professional development. The most talented folk move on, and the average remain.

    Pros

    great people, positive outlook towards benefit to society, enjoyable place to work, great surrounds and campus buzz

    Cons

    management structure is confused and difficult to traverse, too much bureaucracy, kindness can be a curse when you need to get stuff done.

    Advice to Management

    Temper management by consensus ideal, gather input by committee but make decisions singularly and ride them to delivery.

    Negative Outlook

    I have been working at Griffith University full-time for more than 10 years

    Pros

    More modern than other Uni’s Investment in automation for efficiency Campus location

    Cons

    Public transport difficult Ongoing structure changes stressful and without direction VC has been ineffective in driving any real accomplishments Stagnant research revenues leave the rest of institution needing drastic savings Heavy reliance on external reviews to drive any change.

    Advice to Management

    LEAD with conviction. Manage performance Look at the culture... there is no Griffith feeling, or sense of pride. Employees feel undervalued and just want to get out of there at the end of each day.
