Pros

Working as a tutor gives good pay and little pressure. It is a fun and rewarding job and fits in well with existing studies you are undertaking.

Cons

The biggest problem is with poorly developed tutoring materials. If the course co-ordinator works hard to develop good material, it is a pleasure to teach it.

Advice to Management

Management is great but needs more checks to ensure that the quality of tutoring materials is of a high standard.

    I have been working at University of Sydney

    Pros

    Sandstone. Close to where I live. Scope for expansion. Very good reputation.

    Cons

    The University is massively bureaucratic and therefore latently obstructive. It is (almost unapologetically) elitist, without recognising that elitism is a political choice, and not just about social value or quality. This elitism sometimes becomes complacency. Old-fashioned.

    Advice to Management

    Need stronger strategies for encouraging staff development and innovation. Seek a better alignment between teaching, research and administration. Take advantage of the intangible assets of the university. Don't try to run it as a business.


  2. Good place for young scholars
