I worked at University of Melbourne as a contractor

Pros

Great location and pay was good, Flexibility with time tabling and schedule was appreciated. Senior staff and lecturers were very approachable and open to feedback; environment was highly collaborative.

Cons

Problems with errors in tutorial solution sets and assignment model answers caused problems/delays with marking. Often received tutorial guides extremely late, leading to totes being run/developed "on the fly".
Extremely short handed tutorial staff on some units led to some extremely hectic weeks if one tutor was unavailable/away, particularly during assessments/marking. Students had a lot or problems with some subjects, where tutorial content/curriculum seemed unstructured and/or not directly related to lecture content.
