Love the work environment. Sometimes it gets crazy around the busy times, but still, everyone is so helpful and thoughtful. Management really cares about us. Your voice can be heard, it doesn't fall on deaf ears like other workplaces. People are nice and easy going. Very well looked after as a staff member.

The University of Auckland is a nice place to work, however, management does not place much value on the staff. That aside, all the staff are very friendly and make the day go by quickly.

Very relaxed but higher up CEO's are slightly corrupt.
Selling and preordering course books, replying to mail requests, issuing room bookings, marking and taking in Assignment scripts and general inquiries.

Being a research assistant is fun at the University of Auckland. The professor is nice and considerable, it is easy to negotiate with them about the working time and work deadlines.

You will be provided comprehensive training before you go to a practical interview. From the training they will teach you tips to ask the questions, relax the interviewees and other skills.


The research fellows are all very nice. You will have equal opportunity to involve in different part of research instead of doing a set of fixed tasks.


It is fun to interact people with multi-cultural backgrounds and see how the trends had changed during the years.

There is no hiding on what the team is working on and the deliverable. All the information related to the work in progress and upcoming work is placed at a location and is updated and communicated to the stakeholders from time to time.
Pros
Can plan the work ahead of time and can avoid work conflicts
Cons
Any issue arises, update information and to communicate to huge group of people to maintain the tranparency

Independent work culture, where each individual focus on their specific roles.
Guidance is provided if you initiated it yourself.

Small team of people, so it's easy to get along with team members and allows open communication.
Pros
Opportunities to take on extra jobs
Cons
Can be very intensive during short periods of time
