Fair place to work and studyPoor communication between management and staff. Morale generally low. Some really good people, others insufferable. Work and study generally harder then needed to be.
Casual academic in Bundoora VIC
on 12 February 2021
Abysmal work cultureMy experience as a casual academic was extremely poor. The senior academic I worked for was totally disorganised and did not even seem to be able to run meetings in a coherent way. When marking post-graduate student assignments I noticed that a large number of students had been engaged in plagiarism, suggesting that a culture of copy/paste/edit was present at this University. This is possibly related to the low entrance scores that the La Trobe sets, in an attempt to make education more accessible. But the worst part of working at La Trobe was the constant barrage of anti-male content that is thrown at staff. It seems that this university is quite comfortable spreading hate and lies about ordinary men, and at the same time, claim to be world leaders in supporting diversity. They appear to be stuck in a bubble of rigid ideas, with no idea of the harm they are causing to their staff, or to their own reputation. I feel sorry for all the male staff and students at this university.
Security Officer in Bundoora VIC
on 11 February 2021
Horrid placeSadly my experience was shocking the management changes every 3 months with “what not” and “Do as I say and not as I do” mentality. The struggle and workload is very drastic. The management I would not recommend at all either from the place changing and little to no understanding or care. You will get angry emails everyday and given useless information passing the buck is too real here too. Most of the staff are jaded too.Security at the uni is a joke.
Senior Technical Officer in Bundoora VIC
on 4 November 2020
Excellent work life balance. Great campus with walking tracks, gym and eating out options.I worked as a Senior Technical Officer in Latrobe from 2016 to 2020. It's an incredible time in my professional life. The pay was very good with 17% super. At times the pressure was very high, but there were plenty of smooth sailing days too. It took me a while to get to know people well and built the trust, but after few months into the role, with better trust, it was absolutely amazing. Their HR induction process is really good. I really enjoy the supportive culture. There's a good cultural diversity among the staff with great gender balance. I had to make a hard call to leave the organisation with a voluntary redundancy package due to the Covid 19 crisis. The detailed informative approach the senior leadership team had was truly commendable. It was a great place to work.
Security Officer in Bundoora VIC

Outsource your rileI was an in house security officer at Latrobe when most of us were doing security directly here. It was absolutely great until management outsourced most of our roles.. Previous management was absolutely a pleasure to work for but present isn’t as much with contracted security guards taking over sadly that added to insult to our hard work.
