    I worked at Monash University

    Pros

    Excellent opportunities to take on additional responsibilities within the department, such as assessing undergraduate student coursework, running departmental meetings, maintaining shared equipment and so on.

    Cons

    Undergraduate students are very demanding, and like to turn up to the office asking for supervisors or help with assignments outside of set hours, or with little warning.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    The process between hiring and getting pay, IT facilities and staff card etc needs to be smoothed out - I only found out my email account was ready to use by ringing up the IT department myself.
