Toxic Work Culture and Egoistic Human Resources department. Each higher management official has his or her own personal agenda matters and do not care for staff in any way. Neither willing to learn good practices from peer Universities nor ready for feedback. The best way to succeed here is to sing praises for the head of your department even when sleeping.

Working directly for a professor at UC is rewarding when it comes to experience and possible networking options, but rarely rewarding when it comes to payment or stability.

Recommended for dedicated academics only.

No enforcement of serious misconduct, bullying or WHS policies. No skills development and therefore no advancement for the little guy. Poor management in professional offices.

UC has a huge no of International students. To teach them about marketing was an amazing experience. Managing the demand of diversified students is difficult, even though I am enjoying It.

Student leading teaching system is a main disadvantage of UC

Units were run Monday - Friday 8:30am - 9:30pm and on Saturdays.
A relatively new university (under 50 years) with good ambitions. Teaching facilities improving all the time and with more on campus accommodation campus facilities are also improving in terms of choice. This is important as the campus is not as close to external establishments such as those found in the large capital cities.
Pros
Improving facilities.
Cons
Cold in winter.

As a postgraduate researcher had many opportunities to be a leader in preparing and independently working on research. The first several months I had read books and journal articles prior to beginning research. Then I prepared my projects through my own innovations as well as with advice from supervisors.
Pros
create own schedule
Cons
misunderstandings
