    I worked at Edith Cowan University as a contractor (more than a year)

    Pros

    The HR department actually seemed to be fairly efficient, and the people I worked with were friendly and occasionally a bit crazy. I was quite impressed with the focus on teaching. Decent salary packaging opportunities and benefits.

    The campus (Joondalup) is attractive, has good bus connections with the train station and is in walking distance anyway. There's decent facilities on campus, including a good gym and various food outlets.

    Cons

    Probably slightly less chance of getting large research grants than at some of the more research-focused universities, but that is only an assumption. Can't really think of any other cons though.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep that focus on teaching. It'll keep the good teaching staff around.
