it's fun to work with other students that are my age and those that are older. The workplace encourages the employees to be better in what they are doing. The salary and work-life balance are good.

I absolutely loved every minute of working for Deakin University. It is a fantastic University and stands out from the crowd. They have great working conditions and room for advancement. Their Salary structure is great, and the VC has really put Deakin on the map as a preferred university to study at.
My only issue was I was made redundant last year and the reason I was given was my salary could no longer be sustained.

Since myself and the current director have moved on, they realised they could not cope with out my role as I managed the largest team in Corporate Finance they have had to recruit 3 staff to take on the one role which I was in, therefore three times the wages as before they made my position redundant. I did not want to take a package but I was basically given no option. So this is the only issue I have with Deakin, that I think this decision was made hastily and not researched enough, when deciding to make my role redundant. Really I should have been give the opportunity to go back given that I never wanted to leave. This is the only issue I have. I don't think the current CFO made the best decision for Deakin.
Pros
staff, salary, policies, place of employment, conditions

I always strive to do my best in whatever I do. I have a friendly nature and I get on well with most people that I meet. I am able to communicate effectively with a range of people including family members, my peers and adults.
i have learned a lot such as, team work , help each other and do your best.

the management was good and understanding when it comes us and always call us to know if there anything need to be done or added to complete the job.

The hardest part in the job , when you working a lot and u have to do most of the work by your self as my team was sick.

The most enjoyable part of the job was knowing new people and understanding each other.
Pros
Salary paid and Team work
Cons
Short hours
