Education & Instruction
Environment is fun and people is open minded..casual wear no formal wear. A best place to learn new thing and technology. a place to learn how to communicate
Not a great place for long term. Managers have very less knowledge of Swinburne processes. You work hard in casual roles and they will not give you shifts saying they want to give equivalent shifts. But then after sometime you will again see some casual staff getting full shifts when they are new. Better to move On from this place after getting some experience. Management got no principles at all. No use of working hard for them.
Swinburne was a great place to work with, working with a supportive team on exciting and niche projects. However, similar to other academic environments, your job is not secured due to the restricted funding. Swinburne is fast moving forward, which will be recognised in a few years!
Working at Swinburne means wasting the time. Low science knowledge, poor experimental equipment. Very slow processing for doing experimental and providing resources. Very poor knowledge staffs. All should be independently with limited experienced staffs. All looking at you to find a solution.
I learnt about time management doing task that was not habitual in my previous habitual. Complete the allocated task in the scheduled time it was the harder part but it was also the most useful experience for further jobs
