A day at work as a IT support would be to follow ticket to clients, troubleshoot and escalate if troubleshooting leads to negative result, log the procedure and you are done.

Great pay

The bosses and supervisor are great, they are there to support you. if you are good worker, you can get more oportunities, in my case I started as casual.

Worked to the bone for so little

Tutors, run away. The amount of work you put in to care for students doesn't get remunerated as the hours system makes it impossible for you to do your job.

Pros

Diversity of activities, fun challenges

Cons

Long hours unpaid

An excellent workplace

I did an IT contract for Monash during 2019. The staff were wonderful, the atmosphere being collaborative and highly team oriented. The management were supportive and just let me get on with what I know without interfering. Overall I'd go back there anytime they have an opening for my skillset. A great place to work.

Don't do it to yourself

Staff are over worked, skills under utilised unless of course management can manipulate you. Don't care about workplace injuries, wellbeing or any flexibility. They want robots not staff with ideas or initiative.

Pros

Non

Cons

Too many to list

Nice work place

If you are looking for a relaxing work place with nice places for you to eat lunch and a library for you to go and find your favourite books and magazines, Monash University would be a great place for you to work while trying to explore the campus and learn a little bit more about yourself and the next generation.

Pros

Friendly work mates, nice work place on campus & nice places to have lunch.

Cons

Marking can be tedious & there's no pay for casual staff during the break.

Monash Student Association

I was a volunteer. You will get a good salary if you get a paid job. The people are really nice. Can get monotonous and stressful. It is a corporate environment. But the contacts you make can be really helpful

Pros

Good work atmosphere, great place to pick up new skills

Cons

Monotonous and very hi

Fun place, enjoyable, good people

Easy going yet still busy with things to do. Multi-tasking - Emails, Inbound phone calls, front counter service, printing of documents and cards, liaising and building relationships with faculties and other departments, sometimes making outbound calls. Never dull; always something to do or learn, with a great team of people to do it with!

Productive and supportive work environment

Great management, always something different, whether it was traveling to a research site or performing administration duties, all aspects were enjoyed. now that I am ready to return to work Monash would be a great location.

Caring and Productive

The environment here is awesome. Management and Coworkers are both very caring and hard working people, who are passionate at what they do. The hardest part of the job is managing a work/study balance with one's study because timetables may change at short notices. The most enjoyable part is definitely working with the people around you, and feeling like you're giving back to your community and making a positive difference to the world and the future.

Excellent place to work and learn from people with diverse background

Excellent work environment. Almost all the staff are very much friendly and quite helpful. The safety is its first priority and Monash has a zero harm policy I believe. I love to work here.

Client review

Lots of politics working in education. Was across an AWS migration of their environment. Lots of red tape to get anything done. The contractors working there seemed to be the ones actioning the work, whereas the full time employees were a bit more challenging

Fun workplace and GREAT pay but insecure job security

This was a great place to work because it did not require a lot of time or have a lot to do, great management, great team. However like all universities they are always looking to cut costs and make money. So redundancy is inevitable. Still take the leap as pay is so good.

Pros

Great pay

Cons

Eventual Redundancy

The university is a research based institution with many campuses in Australia including overseas campuses in Malaysia, South Africa and China.

I enjoyed every part of my work and research both in Australia and doing my fieldwork at three South African universities(University of Natal, University of Durban Westville and the University of Pretoria} all sponsored by Monash University graduating with a Postgraduate Diploma in Commercial Law, Graduate Diploma of Education and a Doctorate in Education( EdD).

Pros

Free lunches, sponsored research trips, professional development workshops

Cons

Many study options, long hours of work
