Productive and fun workplace
Casual Research Assistant (Current Employee) –  Brisbane QLD11 July 2018
I never visited or worked at the UQ campuses (I worked at a different location, but still under UQ). This means that I can not give UQ an accurate review, although my time there was great.

Good, relaxed and autonomous work. Ability to explore ideas and potential.

I run experiments to determine key data for industry members. My work will be used for the development of a new type of engineer that runs on methanol.

Great place for graduate positions
Research assistant (Former Employee) –  Brisbane QLD16 January 2018
It's a great place for graduates and wanting work experience, however, if you have not studied there from the beginning it's quite difficult to get along with people, as everyone is focused on their jobs, and their circle of friends. But very good money, especially if you're young and don't have many financial responsibilities

supportive colleagues
Research Assistant (Former Employee) –  Brisbane QLD17 September 2017
Supportive colleagues which made all the difference to my enjoyment of the job. However, while pay seems equitable, the hours put in to do an excellent and not just a competent job are not well-rewarded.

An exciting learning environment
Research Assistant (Former Employee) –  Brisbane QLD8 May 2017
Working at UQ comes with the same frustrations you might face at any large organisation (e.g. payroll processing, possible delays when communicating with HR, etc), but generally it is exciting to work at a beautiful campus (St Lucia) with excellent facilities (apart from parking).
