Very Clicky
Management have their favorites and people get promoted without merit.
Director, DVC, VC level staff are not qualified for the job, so staff spend a lot of time chasing their tails to no avail. Is a them and us mentality.

Not enough focus on the student experience, rather a lot of in-house competitiveness goes on and student outcomes are lost.

Innovative university with focus on distance education and regional pressence.
As part of of the Masters of Engineering qualification that we offer the students are required to be present on campus for hands-on learning experiences in their field of study. My job is to teach them part of their curricula in a controlled laboratory engironment where they can transfer their theoretical skills into practice.

Multicultural environment
Being a part of CQUniversity is a very good and powerful experience for me. Working inside universitie's multicultural environment, I learned so much about people, organization and also about myself. I learned how to deal with people with different personalities.

No appreciation or respect.
CQIT and CQU merged ( read CQU took over CQIT) five years ago, I worked for CQIT. The academics from CQUniversity treated us like garbage, and the management could not figure out how the VET industry worked. Since then it has gone from bad to worse with over half of the teachers leaving and not being replaced, all of the lower management are also gone, as are all of the admin support. Market share has dropped from over 70% to about 5%. You can then figure out what is expected of the teachers that are still there. To add to the misery, they recently forced a new EBA on the VET teachers which strips away all of the rights they used to have, and reduced annual leave from 9 weeks to 6 weeks per year, and reduced wages, some as much as 30% as they removed a pay scale for those teachers who held tertiary qualifications.
Pros
None.
Cons
Every7 aspect of the job.

Good place but slow management
Good place to work. People are friendly and cooperative. The only issue is with management. They are really slow in performing even the smallest of tasks. Other than that its a very good place to work flexible hours, one can even go on Sundays to finish their pending work.
Pros
Good people
Cons
Slow Management

Very practical and fun based workplace
During my time at CQU I was basically thrown in at the deep end as I had been employed to deliver an Automotive Electrical course. The course is a three stage course each stage being run over a twelve month period. My problem was that there were no classroom resources and very little practical resources. Over a twelve month period I designed and produced over twenty student resource workbooks which covered all the requirements for the course.
My duties also involved writing the theoretical assessments which included moderation and validation in accordance with the specifications for the Australian Training Council.

A huge learning curve.

The rewards were 100% success for the students and very positive feedback from students regarding the workbooks.
Pros
Left alone to get on with the job
Cons
Good holidays and team spirit

Great place to work
Very good work/life balance and very competitive compensation. The location leaves something to be desired and the campus isn't very pretty. But all in all, a great pace to work.
