    I worked at Monash University as a contractor (Less than a year)

    Pros

    I was working for my supervisor as a research assistant, continuing on my own project. As I was doing it mainly to get paid so it was not overall exciting for me. Your work environment basically will depend on each individual research group, lab head, and general work culture.

    Cons

    If you have the right skills then there are a lot of opportunities for career progression in mainly the academics field. But if your field is not currently in the lime light it may be very hard to come across a permanent job or post doc even.

    Advice to Management

    Focusing on training the PhD students for job ready skills would be a huge plus. A huge multitude of them are lost without direction when they graduate.

    I have been working at Monash University as a contractor (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Lots of benefits, including extremely discounted rates for different things such as Rent a car (Avis + Budget), free flu-shots, good working environment overall. They also provide the same level of benefits to casual employees as they do to full-time employees.

    Cons

    Since they only hire students for the position of Student Success Advisor, therefore you don't get to interact with individuals from other backgrounds which you normally would in a work environment.

    Advice to Management

    I would suggest that Monash converts the position of Student Success Advisor into a part-time or a full-time role, because students need a lot of advisers to help them out, plus employees would get the privileges/compensation of working part-time/full-time as well.
