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

Solid Employer

Good employment opportunity backed by a university with resources. Tends to run more like a corporation than a university in many ways. Solid salary and benefits. Great lab facilities.

Eastern Clinical Research Unit Management not supportive

Have been working in this research unit for many years. Culture of bullying and staff harassment is rife and management deal with this by making employees redundant or turning other employees against them so they eventually leave. Job security is non-existent as most staff are on ongoing fixed term contracts so we cannot speak out against harassment. Staff's personal & confidential information is discussed by management amongst other colleagues without their permission. Management turns a blind eye to any serious issues raised and simply start performance managing staff out of their positions aimed at discrediting them because it's easier than dealing with the problems.

Pros

flexible start and finish times

Cons

long hours expected unpaid, HR non-supportive, Management cannot be trusted, non-supportive

great place to work, productive and stimulative place to work

I enjoyed teaching undergraduates and sharing my knowledge witrh them. The workplace was conducive. Moreover, the students were polite and willing to learn. I am overseen by a senior lecturer who is there to make sure all the admin gets done. They are always eager to help out with any problem. The hardest part of the job is motivating students to keep going and not give up on themselves.

Pros

Good pay, good support for teaching associates, being able to share your knowledge with students

Cons

Sometimes classrooms are not ideal, often students stop coming to classes, there is no career progression

Teaching is wonderful, and Monash pays well per hour

I teach mathematics tutorial classes. Each class involves spending two hours with the 20-25 students, working through the assigned problem sets. My focus is on their understanding of the material, and I use a variety of education techniques to achieve this. This role also involves prior planning and marking of assessments throughout semester. I am overseen by a senior lecturer who is there to make sure all the admin gets done. They are always eager to help out with any problem. The hardest part of the job is motivating students to keep going and not give up on themselves. The most enjoyable part of the job is that beautiful moment when a student finally "gets it" - I feel a sense of pride and achievement in my student and myself. It's also great when students heap praises on you in the Student Evaluation of Teaching forms.

Pros

Good pay, good support for teaching associates, being able to share your knowledge with students

Cons

Sometimes classrooms are not ideal, often students stop coming to classes, there is no career progression

Fun and social workplace where I excelled in customer service and sales.

A typical day at work would include putting through transactions, advising customers which items suit their needs best, taking care of orders, calling customers, answering inquiries via the phone, visual merchandising of stock, organizing stock on the floor and stocktaking. From this position I have learnt to listen to the customers needs carefully and also to upsale depending on the relevant promotions at that point in time. I really enjoyed working with my coworkers from all walks of life and different ages as I am a very friendly and co operative person. The hardest part of this job is that it is a casual position that is only required at the start of semesters. Unfortunately this does not provide a great deal of job security. However is still a great position as it gives me an opportunity to interact with people and practice my sales techniques.

Supportive environment

Academia has become an excellent career choice to balance work and life as a mother of three young children. I have been intimately involved in the preparation of the students through the development of online content following a flipped classroom model. I am able to work remotely from my home and have learned a great deal from my colleagues, particularly around innovation. The most difficult part of the job is not being able to interact face-to-face with my colleagues on a regular basis.

Casual enrollments officer

This was a position I enjoyed very much, face to face with new students offering information and enrollment. Unfortunately it was only for a week annually.
