Generally a good place to work. Very friendly and supportive collegial atmosphere. Colleagues mentor each other and there are a lot of resources available to draw on. Professional development is sponsored through paid attendance at conferences, both in Melbourne and interstate. A good place to work.

Very stressful and you need to know a lot about the university, the university itself is huge and its just a bit overwhelming. I was working full time Monday to Friday from 9 til 5 sometimes skipping breaks to keep up.

I learned how to adapt to and learn to teach from a variety of curriculums in a short period of time. Teaching mostly motivated young adults was enjoyable. I also enjoyed teaching courses that were five weeks long.

As part of the peer mentor program as a volunteer enables me to have an understanding of how difficult it would be to adjust and adopt to new surroundings and how this kind of support system would help them in what they are experiencing for them to cope with their life especially for new students.

it's fun to work with other students that are my age and those that are older. The workplace encourages the employees to be better in what they are doing. The salary and work-life balance are good.

Tight funding for research means NO job security. Good work environment, but significant delays due to OHS red tape. Overall, a good workplace, IF you have job security.

Worked on a project which required managing several different levels of staff throughout the university. Having good communication skills - both verbal and written is very useful

An outstanding learning enviroment however full of nasty politics and egotistical people running the place. If you are not into diversity and are a smoker you will be completely demonised and will not fit in

I enjoyed my time at Deakin University as a Research Assistant.
The work experiment helped me as well in my study towards the completion of my Bachelor's of Criminology and Criminal justice.
