    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 for projects or materials varies according to the information source and procedures are never clear.
