Curtin University is a good place to work. The University encourages work life balance. Also advancement through education and some courses are available for staff. When I was at Curtin my daughter is only 5 years old. I used to take her to the childcare facility near Humanities and see her on my lunch break.
Diversity and every one is treated equally.
Too far from my home.
The mantra "this is how we do things here" rings true. After 3 years of being treated like an outsider, I left. Half the people I met were excellent, but there was an old guard - it is a small pond, and with no where to go, people hung on to their jobs well beyond their use-by date. They breathed all the oxygen and pushed other people out. People were frustrated. I got tired of hearing the complaints.
Salary, flexible work, modest work expectations
Lack of adequate office space, lack of transparency, little hope of change or progression, sexist culture.
University Culture is vastly different to a corporate or commercial organisation, you focus on helping students learn, and passing your knowledge and experience on in clear and easy to understand ways. The campus facilities are world class, and working here is delightful.
terrible place to work, long time employee (33 years), the management systematically reducing staff, pay and working conditions without remorse. I grew to hate it there and left last year after working there with a career for so long, this tells you how badly I feel about it
Curtin gave me the chance to explore my technical capabilities as well as contribute to the innovative and everchanging culture in both the administration and the education side.
We want to help you find great companies. Help us be the best!
Do these reviews help you learn more about working at Curtin University?
Nice environment, teaching undergraduates is very rewarding. The university offers a number of positions throughout the year in different departments, and when undergoing postgraduate studies it is convenient to find sessional positions within the work/study place.
My experience while at Curtin was varied. However, generally, there was a significant lack of management action and a lot of people getting paid to do nothing, such that the work was unevenly distributed amongst the team. These issues were raised with management several times by several employees, but rather than changes being made, those employees were blacklisted as 'pot-stirrers.' This created a very poor, unmotivating working environment.
Within my department, the culture is friendly and supportive. Outside of my department, however, there have been many issues. Curtin has been going through significant restructuring and budget adjustments and one of the most prominent impacts of this on staff is a significant lack of job security.
Skills expansion, varied job experiences, well rounded team and working environment, Comfortable working conditions, on time payment and respectable hourly rate as casual.
Experiences and free event entry
yearly staff turn over
Tutoring students is a rewarding career and a typical day would involve one on one tutoring with 2nd year students, helping them with homework, assignments and general understanding. Excellent place to work at. Management can be difficult at times but generally work runs smoothly. No co-workers - independent work probably the con of the job
Flexible working times
No budget for training, no co-workers
