How is management perceived at University of Canterbury?

Pros

This place has an inbuilt drive for mediocracy it seems. Here they do not value success, but if you are born in NZ or at least in Aus or the UK and you want to participate in mindless management games instead of teaching or doing research, then this may well be the place for you.

Cons

Overseas colleagues call this the place where creativity comes to die, and I have to agree. If you have any drive do not come here, soon your family will get settled in, happy with the easy-going lifestyle and you will be stuck here. Working here will shorten your life expectancy, but along the way, you will learn to no longer mind... If you are interested in a job here, please read Orwell's, 1984 (or even his Animal Farm). If you are still not deterred, stop fooling yourself! Today's favourite is tomorrows reject, and it will happen to you too. Run!

Advice to Management

Sack complete management from the top down to associate department heads. Years of mismanagement have lead to the replacement of somewhat capable and sometimes even ethical staff with mindless, quivering lackeys.

Here they do not value success, but if you are born in NZ or at least in Aus or the UK and you want to participate in mindless management games instead of teaching or doing research, then this may well be the place for you.
