Job Culture
The mantra "this is how we do things here" rings true. After 3 years of being treated like an outsider, I left. Half the people I met were excellent, but there was an old guard - it is a small pond, and with no where to go, people hung on to their jobs well beyond their use-by date. They breathed all the oxygen and pushed other people out. People were frustrated. I got tired of hearing the complaints.
Pros
Salary, flexible work, modest work expectations
Cons
Lack of adequate office space, lack of transparency, little hope of change or progression, sexist culture.

University Culture is vastly different to a corporate or commercial organisation, you focus on helping students learn, and passing your knowledge and experience on in clear and easy to understand ways. The campus facilities are world class, and working here is delightful.

Working at curtin has been great my typucal day is meeting new staff and student helping them with there inquiries while maintaining i high standard of customer service. Learned on the job is part of my role, in which this has given me the experience to learn how deal with all aspects of the job including how to deal with high up management. The culture of the university is very diverse with many cultures. The hardest part of my job is problem solving a issue with printing services, i have a can do attitude and will not give up until the issue is resolved. The most enjoyable part of my job is speaking with my customers relating to them on a daily basis.
Pros
seeing my customers andhave a conversation with them
Cons
low pay rate

A typical day at work was updating training information and delivery of training courses. Providing coaching as required and working with teams who had internal relationship issues. Best part of the job was being involved in the cultural work and also coaching and seeing the positive outcomes of this work.
Pros
Great gardens. Flexible conditions
Cons
Long way to travel

Depending on the department and your colleagues this can be a great place to work. I was given a lot of independence which made it a nice place. I would certainly consider going back if the opportunity arose.

Within my department, the culture is friendly and supportive. Outside of my department, however, there have been many issues. Curtin has been going through significant restructuring and budget adjustments and one of the most prominent impacts of this on staff is a significant lack of job security.
Pros
Nice campus
Cons
Job insecurity

Well, the research means you have to do everything and learn them by yourself alone. The hardest part of the job is designing whereas the most enjoyable part is your desired outcome has been accomplished as expected in early beginning.
Pros
Not much
Cons
Dealing with some students.
