    Positive Outlook

    I worked at Griffith University full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Access to software, support services

    Cons

    Contract work, hard to get permanent which creates a high turnover of staff and bad retention

    Advice to Management

    Value employees by offering permanent work. Increase the positive work culture, enforcing work-life balance, there is too much guilt driven overworking culture.

      Positive Outlook

      I worked at Griffith University part-time for less than a year

      Pros

      A relatively new, growing university. It has prospects to increase its research projects scope and provide financing for focus area projects. Research output doubled within the past 5-10 years.

      Cons

      Narrow band of projects and depending on the work group mentalities can be pretty narrow too. Training opportunities or material resources are quite limited and there is no willingness to support junior researchers. Admin is pretty disorganized. Pay scales are not respected, employment contracts are not properly set-up and delays happen frequently and all without excuses or anyone taking responsibility. Funds availability...

      Advice to Management

      Take less holidays and do their work according to a time frame. Start communication between offices.
