Underpaid for the work we do

Underpaid and overworked. Other lecturer and tutors are not qualified. Poor management all around. Go to Unimelb or another university instead. Monash treats students like cash cows.

fun place

This job is really fun, interactive, and inspiring. The work time is really long, and it can be really exhausting, but the pay is really good. The mental stress can be really high, and the human relationships can be really tough, but overall it's a great job.

Exciting and competitive

Working at Monash Uni has its challenges but overall, it is a good place to work at, most of the time it offers a balance life style, e.g. home/family commitments.


Flexible work arrangements, home/office, 2 days at home, 3 in the office

Beautiful place and lovely people. Campus is beautiful and has many facilities, lots of nature and good location. Creative and fun. The only con is there are not many food options.

Great place to work

Good pay and working environment. People are helpful. Students are good. Have fun time teaching them. Pay for marking is quite low as you may have to spend more time than you need to finish.

highly performing university

The staff whom I have met have mostly been very relational. However, having performed very well in Semester 1 in a part-time role, but as a sessional tutor, in Semester 2 there was a lack of communication leading to my being offered no tutorial. Perhaps there is some office politics?


Salary, 17% super & some staff members are relational, helpful and good at providing positive support and affirmation.


It was disappointing that my efforts in Semester 1 were not rewarded in Second 2, Perhaps because of office politics?tics?

Fun workplace, best place to meet and build new network

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.


Chill place and very relaxed

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.


Diversity of activities, fun challenges


Long hours unpaid

Best place to work

Waiting to work for monash again if opportunity knocks. Good ambiance, good professional culture and nice induction training and everything is good to start your career with Monash.

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.




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.


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


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


Good work atmosphere, great place to pick up new skills


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!
