The university does not provide opportunity to the international students of temporary visa people and always hire on the basis of reference given by one of the staff

Western Sydney provides opportunity throughout your employment to experience different fields. The professional development is second to none and totally recommend taking advantage of it.
The culture is a fun and exciting with a true professional focus on there long/ short term values and views.

With all that said the only downside is that I work in a department that had the most cohesive team ethic but management has been unsympathetic and self-absorb with is there self advancement which may cause unease at the best of times.

Learned a lot and enjoyed a workplace with so many opportunities both in house and externally. It is a shame the job security is so poor because it is a fantastic place to be.

Not a very pleasant culture to work in, bullying is rife, too many restructures and the loss of experienced staff to inexperienced people and that's the good points !

There are many research facilities and many good scientists, so it is the best place to research. Particularly climate change in agricultural and forest.

- Great time teaching, not as much fun administratively.
- Often difficult to plan your hours from semester to semester

- Many different campuses always going the opposite way of rush-hour traffic

Productive and Fun work place. I was lucky to be surrounded by all wonderful and amazing colleagues. There were quite senior colleagues but they never let me feel I am new. They were very helpful,motivating and patient while training me. They always maintained a positive energy at work. Loved working there and miss everyone now.

Continuous improvement of services. Business case, SLA, Incident management, problem management, change management, project management, change management and knowledge management.

Helping people improve their processes and ICT systems in line with the organization strategy.. The hard part was being handed sub standard solutions and fixing it operationally. My key learning were a growth in end to end service management and vendor management in a large scale organization.

The university supported new ideas in teaching.
Workplace culture was diversified and hence I found it to be great.

Good connect with management.

Teaching was always in the evenings after work and hence a bit tiresome at times

Good IT leaders driving innovation. Rest of the university exhibit pretty poor culture in all aspects, including discrimination and low staff morale and productivity.
Permanent positions are mainly awarded based on longevity not competency.

easy going, open door policy. Ppl are always willing to help you out. The hardest part of the job was learning to utilize the various channels of approval as there were multiple departments handling different aspects of the university.
