Does University of Auckland assist with or provide childcare?

Pros

Great Stats Department Great daycare facilities Central location Decent teaching load Good connectivity between departments Flexible hours Decent pay

Cons

Auckland is too expensive and expanded for work-life balance. Academic work load is detrimental to work-life balance. Daycare facilities are indeed great if one can find a place for children. Some major decisions by upper management are made without consulting department level while others are made despite consultation. Recent administrative review uprooted the academic-administrative dynamics in the departments making live as an academic a lot more difficult, and live as an administrator more expensive. The amount of annual reports that need to be written/read is mindboggeling. It needs a lot of time for an academic to do research, teaching, and the administrative extras...
