    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.
