    I have been working at Monash University part-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    Some of the lecturers are really good and passionate about teaching.
    The lecture theaters can accommodate the students comfortably.
    The lectures are recorded and are available online.

    Cons

    Tutorials and laboratories have too many students per tutor.
    They are planning on phasing out the laboratories and are trying instead to get the students to perform simulations of the experiments.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Choose lecturers on the basis of their track record and not someone who publishes one hundred journal papers per year as such a thing does not add value in the lectures.

    Respect your academics! They're the reason you're doing so well!

    Too many chiefs, easy places to hide, politically worn-out.

    I worked at Monash University full-time (more than a year)

    Pros

    Decent conditions and most of my team are respectful and hard working.

    Cons

    Sexism and agism in hiring procedures (difficult place to be male and/or young)
    Senior staff are in positions because of their relationship with their manager, not because of experience or specialist knowledge.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    There's irreversible damage being done when you ignore people while they work for you, fire them at a whim and then take them to court or FWA when they stand up for themselves.

    * Very good benefits - good leave, support for study
