Peer Tutor
The work was good and I enjoyed teaching students about various classes and skills. It depends per semester whether or not there are students in need of tutoring, but overall it was fun

Great atmosphere, cool work colleagues and the golf buggies are fun :)
I loved working here with the maintenance team during the chilled water project throughout the library, the above ground gas pit project, and surveying the plumbing throughout the campus. Worked with a great bunch of blokes who taught me how to weld poly pipe. Awesome atmosphere being surrounded by gardens and the pop up refractory always had a huge variety of food that would change frequently.

Nice environemnt but plenty of red tape.
A very nice environment but the constant threat of the removal of the EBA is draining on the once positive culture. Dictatorial, mediocre leadership at the top is leaving only like-minded middle managers which is counterproductive to innovation, inspiration and diversity.
Pros
Nice environment
Cons
Dictatorial, mediocre leadership at the top

Chance to inspire within tertiary education
Murdoch university provides me with an opportunity to inspire students and facilitate their learning. It is a mostly growth-orientated environment. As a tutor, there is limited room for internal growth with the absence of a PhD.
Pros
Friendly staff, competent administration, generally psychologically safe working environment
Cons
Occasional office politics

It takes a while to be accepted
Coming from commerce into the University, there was a lot of suspicion. It would be lovely if all parts of the university work together as one Murdoch University.

Great place to work but no security of employment.
It is a great place to work, on campus or online. I enjoyed the opportunities; including design of units. I enjoyed the culture and the team spirit.The only significant issue is the casual nature of the work.
