      Pretty good

      Pros

      Diversity is valued, women are promoted, online space is varied and they're open to trying new things to improve the student experience. Students are important and well looked after, lots of people from the regions, nice campuses by the water.

      Cons

      Large organisation, too many fixed term contracts and uncertainty at the end of every year. A big restructure is coming up and people are on edge. They're forcing people to come back on campus when they said it would be flexible. Nepotism, favouritism, empire building, stamping out different ideas and all that good stuff.
