Main building is a very nice building, next to ANU and lake. Culturally diverse - CalD group is very active.
Mort street is also close to civic and the park. Social club is very proactive.

Big brothers are too big.

I very much appreciated the opportunities the department gave me in pursuing my passion with agriculture.

Learning to work with new and enthusiastic people is a bonus . The hardest part of the job is working with people who are dissatisfied with their job and job related issues.


The enjoyable part of the job is working with like minded committed people to providing a positive outcome for rural Australia.
Pros
Working with people commiteed to a positive outcome
Cons
felxibility in working environment

Pros
None
