Unproductive and inefficient IT culture and systems.
Customer Service (Former Employee) –  Ultimo NSW5 November 2018
A training ground for inexperienced SAP consultants/analysts and managers working at TAFE. No SLA in placed hence inefficient performance and poor customer service to the SAP users, they should be outsourced to company specializing in SAP supports, which will be much more cost effective. At the moment, the tax payers money are going towards these SAP contractors sitting in TAFE doing the minimal.
Pros
Great for those who does minimal at work and waiting to retire.
Cons
Management confused in the direction, Playing politics more than delivering for the benefits of TAFE, Nothing will change for better in a bad culture.

Business Project Manager (Former Employee) –  Sydney NSW3 April 2018
This is a very old institution, that is not able to move quickly into a contemporary market. For career driven employees, this organisation is a wait and see in terms of its ability to recapture a market that maybe long gone.
Pros

Co-operative and polite
Casual instructor in first aid (Former Employee) –  Moree NSW Australia3 January 2018
Great place to work. The staff are friendly, co-operative and the organization provides opportunities to further develop one's skills base.

Work is determined by one's location within the State therefore, reliant upon demand by clients. Never-the-less, when opportunities do present they are offered to the person designated within an area or, if the person is unavailable, it is then offered to the closest person available.

I have found TAFE to be a warm workplace, have never noticed any adverse political difficulties and have developed a sound professional standing with the administrative and managerial staff.
Pros
Great to work with the staff and management
Cons
Nil determined
