excellent academic environment
excellent academic environment advances research and literature survey skills in a resepectful manner multicultural etc highly uplifting only wish there was a more significant sense of belonging to the School or Faculty as a group as there are group gatherings only available about once a year and this is not enough apart from that everything wonderful and also a nice and pleasant location and excellent teachers and supervisors
Pros
supportive academic environment, sports, volunteer opportunities, location
Cons
lack of engagement with other researchers at the school

work/life balance is not good
UNSW was good/supportive for me when I was a student. Things become quite different when become a full time staff.
You have to be very good at saying no to achieve some sort of work/life balance.

Depends on which team you're working in
UNSW Sydney (the University of New South Wales) is one of Australia's leading research and teaching universities. It generates over $2b p.a. and recently launched an ambitious $3b+ Strategic programme.

Great campus
A terrific campus and many great staff are the chief positives. On the downside some classes are 90 per cent international students with often very limited English who are in drastic need of remedial help.
Pros
A terrific campus and many great staff
Cons
Language challenges with many students.

Poorly managed and lip service to employees they offer no support
UNSW does not care about their employees. They perscribe workloads that appear reasonable but then dump extra jobs
On you through hidden mechanisms. It has a history of bullying and a very male dominated culture. The women in high level posistions act and behave like men and are unsupportive of women. They will lie to their employees in order to manipulate them into performing tasks that are not part of their job. Would not recommend this to anyone

Researching staff
I have read some of your recent publications about centralized battery systems in apartment buildings, and how you are modeling this idea whilst taking into account its economic scenarios. I would like to do a research on this topic so that I can design and build a complete system that I envisaged in my MS

innovative and fun workplace
I love working at UNSW. Very Avangard classroom facilities, I get lots of independence and I feel trusted.
The only downside is the fact that it's contract work, so there is always that job insecurity feeling, otherwise, it's a great place to work.

Productive, collaborative and fun place to work. Great team.
Great place to work and learn. Challenged to upskill and be involved. Good management and excellent culture from my personal view. Typical 9 to 5 kind of job. You have time for your annual leave and are encouraged to take it. I was significantly developed and learnt to use various industry tools. I will recommend UNSW.
