Postdoctoral Research Fellow in Burwood VIC
on 9 March 2022
good place to work
I'm doing research at Deakin as a postdoc, and I feel it has welcoming and relax environment to do my research. Everyone is so welcoming when I joined the center and we have regular morning tea/catch ups and seminars.

work culture changed dramatically
the work culture prior to the current CFO starting was a fantastic culture. Staff were dedicated and felt valued and had a voice, they were extremely productive, embraced change and were continually seeking improvement to their processes. upon the new cfo commencing all management were slowly pushed out of the organisation and new management were employed that were former employees of the CFO. The entire workplace culture changed, instead of saving money by doing this the salary budget increased dramatically and the productivity decreased with less innovation, staff were no longer heard or valued, innovation ceased and the culture completely changed. The wrong people were brought into the organisation and this made staff lose faith in the management team, resulting in high staff turnover. This was extremely disappointing. Prior to this occurring the organisation was a fantastic organisation to work for.
Covid Safe Ambassador in Burwood VIC
on 10 February 2021
I was employed as a Covid Safe Ambassador, a typical day was to ensure that the public who came into Burwood Compass, to apply social distance rules. What I learned after just two shifts is that I myself didn't feel safe as we worked on our own and that also using positive strategies was not always appropriate. Felt that management was rushed and that my pay didnot go through also and needed to chase this up. The hardest part of the job was working on your own and been told constantly about the social distance rules when we already knew ourselves.The most enjoyable part of the job ?

Extremely bad and political workplace
Extremely stressful. They treat employees as currency for their own growth. The jobs are extremely stressful. If you want to join then be ready for the humiliations from your boss. But, there are few good researchers too. Lower level researchers feel abused. Researchers have a track record of complaints but no strict actions are taken. The Workplace is highly political. Management already has so many justifications for the bad behaviours of the researchers. PhD student is only cheap labour. Superiority has given to people who are incompetent. They even lack basic knowledge.
Lead Engineering Researcher in Waurn Ponds

Productive place to work
Since i was an intern over there, I had my time to carryout my research under a good environment. Just wish they did provide allowance for me to support my self. Otherwise its all good.
