The faculty of Business and Law is very dynamic and supported me wherever necessary.

Although I have seized to be part of the faculty now, the school continues to be an integral part of my charity, Fortuna Foundation in capacity as Sponsor.

Working for Edith Cowan University was a great way to add work experience to my resume but also an amazing way to network.
My job description was clear, I knew exactly what was expected of me. The ECU staffs were present and supportive. Overall it was a positive work experience. I will definitely work for ECU again if the opportunity presents itself.

It is a good institution with all what it takes to model career for an individual.

Even though teaching is a challenging role the opportunity to engage and to see people connect with the subject matter made the hard work worthwhile. Wonderful experience.

3 hour lectures, with great technology, in a program that you can see change student's lives from Day 1 of semester to the time they walk out of class at the end of semester, makes this almost a dream job!
Pros
Great facilities, great conditions, and financially well rewarded, even as a sessional staff member!

I have learned a lots when I worked at ECU. The teammates were friendly and ready to help when you need it the most. ECU has always provide the good balance between work and life. The pressure from work usually had been washed away by the staff meeting with fun talk, food and drink.

ECU needs to invest in quality academic staff to enhance its reputation. Unfortunately, most of the staff, although, hard-working- are not qualified academics. For example, the Dean of one particular school does not even have a PhD so this person's underlings are actually more qualified than she!
Pros
Great People (Workers)
Cons
Poor Management
