Staff are keen and intelligent in what they do. They are very supportive and organised. I have been given good opportunities at ACU.The university has challenged me in many of their mathematics units.
I have had the opportunity to be a sessional staff tutor as well as a lecturer.

The hardest part of the job was working effectively within the Covid 19 environment.

I work as a tertiary supervisor on a yearly contract basis so some of these questions are irrelevant to me. I have found the University a pleasing institution to work for over the last few years.

A fun, cultured and collaborative workplace. You get to meet people and create networks. Management was good. If there were any problems, they would attend to it on time and sort it out. I have learnt more skills and knowledge which has helped built my skillset and knowledge.

I'm employed in a sessional position, supervising students who are on their Prac Placements. This is normally in June/July and November/December each year. I have been employed by ACU for approximately 10years in this position and have enjoyed meeting a variety of students from diverse cultures.

Poor direction and under resourced. The role required a significant amount of unpaid prep work that wasn't discussed at recruitment. Students felt unsupported by the university, most experienced serious delays in work placement allocation and lacked motivation to engage

It is a good place to learn and advance your career
However in IT department some of the managers are really Bossy. I believe their should be a training for management that how we should lead teams and deal with them

Some of the management is downright spiteful.
No room for career progression.

Job security is no existent.

No work/life balance.

CEO is working hard to change some of the bad practices.

ACU is a beautiful university geographically and the pastoral staff were lovely. The students were amazing and very polite. The staff had a few problems with communication. Very well paid if you work directly with ACU but not through an agency.
Pros
beautiful location
Cons
staff seem not to get on very well.

Friendly and supportive colleagues. Workplace culture is to work longer hours than normal as there is not much automation and there is quite a bit of duplication of procedures due to the distributed location of the campuses. The most enjoyable part of the job is to bring parties together to discuss and resolve issues and to improve processes.
Pros
Friendly and supportive colleagues
Cons
People work long hours but they are not outcome focussed
