“Systemic bullying, hazing and abuse generally are identified with poor, weak or toxic organizational cultures. Cultures that are toxic have stated ethical values that are espoused but not employed, and other non-ethical values which are operational, dominant, but unstated.
Such cultures thrive when good people are silent, silenced, or pushed out; when bad apples are vocal, retained, promoted, and empowered; and when the neutral majority remain silent in order to survive. Those who are most successful in such a toxic culture are those who have adapted to it, or adopted it as their own”. (McKay, Arnold, Fratzl & Thomas, 2008)

Scott Holmes research job and the University of Newcastle budget
Meanwhile, Caroline McMillen has been telling staff about the "$12 million worth of federal funding cuts announced last year".
Sixteen admin staff members have taken "voluntary separation". The uni has "supported staff to make "positive choices" about their careers" (Newcastle Herald).
HOW LOW CAN THE UNVIVERSTY OF NEWCASTLE GO?
PS There are many of us who have been harassed and victimised by the University of Newcastle and have lost our careers and health who would love to have a year's salary doing Scott-Holmes-type-research!
