Too much pressure on academic staff meaning that supporting them is necessarily inefficient.
Research Assistant (Former Employee) – Burwood East VIC – 18 January 2017
Such a varied workplace that it is difficult to define one particular day for anyone. I worked casually as a student and mostly off-campus in marketing activities or in the field as a research assistant. The people I was working directly with and for were wonderful but communication between departments or even different sections within a department is somewhat lacking. For the most part, my colleagues and teachers were highly driven, passionate but often frustrated and occasionally burned out. I loved my small contribution and was very happy to be selected and employed but I wouldn't seek a full time position in a hurry.
Inspirational co-workers; Subject matter of my choice.
Lack of time for any real communication or open collaboration
