They try hard and are probably one of the better universities in Australia, certainly one of the best regional universities. However, the culture attracts the wrong people and doesn't retain the best and brightest. This criticism applies to all Australian universities. They need more private sector involvement and more flexibility to pay the better staff well. However, at present they are hampered by a monopoly employer. But generally a nice and friendly environment and pleasant place to work.
a work place full of people doing their best to support studnts in all aspects of life.

Student (Former Employee) – Newcastle, NSW – 4 January 2015
It was enjoyable and I was able to gain the experience required in education with a work life balance. The educators I encounted at The University of Newcastle were of a high standard that were willing to help when requested. The hardest part of studying was balancing the assessment requirments for each subject.
