    I have been working at Curtin University full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    I work with fantastic people in an endlessly varied, fascinating, challenging and satisfying job. Teaching is a fantastic way to connect with people, and to see your subject with constantly fresh eyes.

    Cons

    It feels like there is constant administrative change and restructuring, a never ending increase in the weight of procedures to be followed, and time spent on these aspects can restrict time spent on the core job objectives. However, I guess thats the price of working in a 21st century university. From what I hear, Curtin is no worse than others and better than some.
