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

-UNSW successfully receives a lot of funding every year in comparison to other universities in Australia however the output is very poor.
-The universities credentials and prestige is reliant on the productivity of a few labs (mainly computer science and engineering) only while the rest of the labs are sub-par.

-Researchers at UNSW are mainly concerned with status and benefits rather than producing quality research.
-Most of the research is very shallow and can be picked apart fairly easy however with good politics low quality research can be published easily.

-Salary is extremely generous at UNSW. This is to attract scientist by money rather than the quality research.

-If considering going here to pursue a career in a research I would heavily advise to do thorough research on the lab of interest and think critically about the work being published and not just where the work is published (i.e. Nature, Nature, Nature).

-However, I do highly recommend attending the university as a student. Student services and programs are plenty and will provide a rich experience and many platforms for new undergraduate/postgraduate students.
Pros
Lots of funding
Cons
Poor management, low productivity (besides a few labs), work quality is low (again besides a few labs)

I definitely recommend trying to become a demonstrator at UNSW. You have flexibility to plan your lessons and as long as you do your due diligence you'll have a great time.

Like all jobs in this current climate, you will be at times overworked, underpaid and under appreciated, so make sure you love what you do. The salaries at this university are below average in creative fields, however the benefits are high like all universities.
It is a university, so the culture is a little like being in school, and superiors will treat you that way.

They adhere very strictly to the letter of the law as a university is a government body.

The best part of this job is the working conditions are more laid back in general, the offices are air-conditioned, the holidays are in excess of standard as is the superannuation.
Pros
Laid back, Air Con, Extra free holidays
Cons
Creativity is stifled.
