Volunteer (Former Employee) – Brisbane QLD – 23 May 2017
Excellent learning environment, exposure is high with researchers there always wiling to teach you and land you a helping hand. One must go all out if he/she wants to learn and pick up new skills and knowledge.
CSIRO was an interesting and innovative place to work at
Research Intern (Former Employee) – Lindfield NSW – 21 December 2016
A typical day at work: Meeting with my supervisor to discuss the day's work. Setting objectives for the day. The rest of the day cover checking and sending emails, programming and research. In addition to these task I would often meet up with my supervisor or other team members for a second meeting.

The most important part was what I learned. I went from having no experience with Java at all, to over 6 months on the job experience. My level of understanding of Java would now sit at a intermediate to advanced level.
Learning how to program for serial communication, create GUIs, populate tables, translate GPS messages and develop network communication.
Materials Science and Engineering Faculty (Former Employee) – Clayton VIC – 8 March 2016
Enjoyable experience where i was taught to program in C+ and analyse various photos and using C+ to examine various things as well as program a light sensing vehicle that i built and successfully programmed to manoeuvre around a given circuit. The material science and engineering department was very friendly and helpful and taught me many things during the two short weeks i was there.

CSIRO is proper example of what a scientific institution should be. Sadly, it cannot compete in salaries with the institutions from the private sector ,reason why they loose continuously qualified man power.
Laboratory Technician (Former Employee) – North Ryde, NSW – 18 September 2015
This was by far the best team I have ever worked with. People that loved science and had as much fun letting people know about it as they could, because promoting science as a career was one of the prime reasons for the organisation.
My role was a supporting one, but none the less my advice was sought, valued and acknowledged. Brilliant manager, I never heard a cross word from him.
On the down side the labs and storage area were dilapidated, and I was one of many made redundant on a political whim of an incoming federal government.
Friendliest, most supportive team ever!
- Some labs and storage areas were quite dilapidated.
O centro de pesquisa conta com as mais modernas tecnologias nas areas de agricultura e estudos de resursos naturais. Ambiente de trabalho legal, com equipe fortemente comprometida no desevolvimento de inovações e descobertas cientificas.
I learned how to be in a small team also how to handle pressure. I learned how to use TRIM and data entry it was enjoyable and i got my own desk, and i got to go to lunch when i pleased. I liked the people as they were older and i liked having my own little area to work in. I worked with my mum so she gave tips and hints alot to.
Personal Assistant to Research Director(RD) (Former Employee) – Floreat, WA – 4 November 2013
In my previous role at CSIRO, I multi-tasked at a high level due to demands of my role reporting to 3 supervisors. The work demands were constantly and highly changeable and unpredictable on a daily basis and therefore, affected my schedule of priorities. I thrived on keeping ‘abreast and on top’ of these constant changes and hence, relied on my skills and high competency, especially in CSIRO’s Intranet, Network Outlook, MeetingPlace, Sharepoint, video and/or audio conferencing, Confluence and the newly upgraded Science Reporting portal in CSIRO SAP Interface. This upgrade enabled me to drill down definitive project budgets (either an individual project or collectively); FTE’s; Work in Progress; Staff Allocation; expenditure updates and so forth. Due to one of my supervisor’s key role as Stream Leader in WfO Flagship, and his demanding role/duties and the execution/delivering his science in projects in WA, nationally and collaborative projects internationally, it was one of my duties of advising him on a regular basis of the financial status of his projects and if any are in the ‘red”, to immediately bring this to his attention.
