Beautiful campus

Indeed Featured review

The most useful review selected by Indeed
Okay place to work. Some departments do not communicate very well with each other. Most staff were good to work. Culture within the university could improve.

Pros

most staff and students are great

Cons

overworked, undervalued and unappreciated

Well mentored and supportive

Staff are keen and intelligent in what they do. They are very supportive and organised. I have been given good opportunities at ACU.The university has challenged me in many of their mathematics units. I have had the opportunity to be a sessional staff tutor as well as a lecturer. The hardest part of the job was working effectively within the Covid 19 environment.

See comment below

I work as a tertiary supervisor on a yearly contract basis so some of these questions are irrelevant to me. I have found the University a pleasing institution to work for over the last few years.

Fun and collaborative

A fun, cultured and collaborative workplace. You get to meet people and create networks. Management was good. If there were any problems, they would attend to it on time and sort it out. I have learnt more skills and knowledge which has helped built my skillset and knowledge.

Sessional employment

I'm employed in a sessional position, supervising students who are on their Prac Placements. This is normally in June/July and November/December each year. I have been employed by ACU for approximately 10years in this position and have enjoyed meeting a variety of students from diverse cultures.

Under resourced.

Poor direction and under resourced. The role required a significant amount of unpaid prep work that wasn't discussed at recruitment. Students felt unsupported by the university, most experienced serious delays in work placement allocation and lacked motivation to engage

Learning and organizational Culture

It is a good place to learn and advance your career However in IT department some of the managers are really Bossy. I believe their should be a training for management that how we should lead teams and deal with them

Great work-life balance

Coordinators are supportive and collegial. Colleagues are collaborative, responsive to constructive suggestion and professional. All teaching staff care for their students.

Not the best place

Some of the management is downright spiteful. No room for career progression. Job security is no existent. No work/life balance. CEO is working hard to change some of the bad practices.

loved the students, I was only a temp through agency.

ACU is a beautiful university geographically and the pastoral staff were lovely. The students were amazing and very polite. The staff had a few problems with communication. Very well paid if you work directly with ACU but not through an agency.

Pros

beautiful location

Cons

staff seem not to get on very well.
