Has bullying problem
Supervisors/managers are not accountable for their actions. They hold so much power people are afraid to report the relentless bullying that happens. I submitted a formal complaint but have seen no action taken yet.

Good
Good place to work, nice setting in bushy surrounds. Well paid and stimulating intellectually. Not a lot of work available beyond contracts though. I'd work there again, happily.

A good place for future
I learned a lot in the Research School of Chemistry in the ANU. I indeed improved not only in my skills and but also in my mind. After leaving the ANU, I feel like I could face any difficulties in my daily life.

A tool to learn more!
ANU is a nice environment for any enthusiastic body to learn more. It's almost very equipped with modern facilities which in some cases may be at the top in the globe. Highly talented staffs also could make a nice network for collaborating more efficiently.

Working at RSB
Firstly, the Research School of Biology has an excellent school manager who knows the rules, is flexible with time but still requires you to do good work.
There is ample opportunity to go to different talks about subjects in the school and you get to meet people that are actually making a difference to the work we live in.

Hardest part: always proving that you have the right to work there and not wanting to disappoint your peers or manager.

Enjoyable: your colleagues are generally well chosen and the researchers are good people.
Pros
Flexible time
Cons
None

Good research environment in a quiet area
Working as a research student at ANU is a quiet affair where one can focus on their work with little distraction.

The work culture is pretty self-contained, one must be willing to put themselves out there to make friends as most people in Canberra keep to themselves.


The most difficult part of the job is the long work hours for relatively little pay, of course the fact that you enjoy the work you are doing is a bonus, but little consolation for the typically 60+ hour work weeks that occur in such research.


The quiet atmosphere at ANU is good for focusing, but may be too slow for people used to main cities like Sydney.
Pros
Interesting work, good colleagues, travel opportunities, quiet atmosphere
Cons
long hours for little pay, may feel isolated

Peaceful place

Expensive

Unaccountable senior management culture
There are many things to like about the ANU, and indeed Canberra as a place to live. However, the University is beset by a senior management culture which is essentially unaccountable and self-protects at the expense of the protections of due process that staff should normally expect. Unless and until there is a dramatic shift in that culture (evidence for which would be some display of responsiveness to staff concerns) it remains a risky place indeed to invest one's career
Pros
Natural environment.
Cons
Work environment.

A toxic culture where bullying and harassment are condoned.
The senior central administrative managers have created a toxic culture where perpetrators of bullying and harassment are supported and victims are silenced. Though the executive have been made aware of this, they do nothing about it. They have no concern for people, there is nothing human about human resources where some of the worst bullies reside. Don't believe the glossy facade of ANU, it is a cesspool of self-supporting sociopaths (as described by many psychologists and doctors around the ACT who have helped their victims).
Pros
Nice campus
Cons
Toxic culture of bullying

Productive and social workplace
The Fenner School of Environment and society is a productive and social workplace. I value being able to work and share morning teas with researchers from diverse fields such as human ecology, ecology, environmental science and policy and conservation.
Level feeling hierarchy with ample opportunity to learn and exercise management and outreach skills throughout.
Pros
Weekly social morning teas; focussed and active intrest groups
Cons
Few researchers in my field
