    Current Employee - Graduate Research Assistant in Melbourne

    Pros

    they seem to take employee welfare more seriously than most other universities I know

    Cons

    Not much flexibility or common sense when it comes to conflict resolution. The "I'm not taking responsibility" for what "could" happen makes people over-controlling if they are in a position where they can introduce a few more rules, only to assure extra protection for themselves
