Bullying and ridicule at work
Project Officer (Former Employee) –  Crawley-Nedlands WA18 November 2018
The workplace culture was appalling - bullying everyday by a senior team, in overcrowded and unsafe workroom. Witnessed harassment and ridicule of other staff and of visitors and constant disparagement of academics.
Cons
daily humiliation

Events Officer/Admin Assistant (Former Employee) –  Perth, Western Australia12 June 2018
The best thing to work at the University of Western Australia is its multicultural and super friendly workforce. Personally, I really enjoyed working at UWA, however, I know some people complaining about the micromanagement, but I think it largely depends on your manager and school director.
Pros
Good salary, multicultural work environment, campus location
Cons
Limited new job openings

A pleasant work environment
Teacher (Former Employee) –  Nedlands WA6 February 2018
The staff were all very helpful and friendly and the environment was conducive of professional development. It was hard because their sessional contracts were very short (5 weeks from memory) and one never knew if there was going to be work after each contract. As I needed something more reliable, I went back to my old employer.
Pros
Good pay
Cons
short sessional contracts

Administration Assistant (Former Employee) –  IELTS Centre, Nedlands Campus23 August 2017
UWA was a great employer. Working in a small centre, attached to UWA proved a challenge. It was enjoyable although was a very quiet position, therefore making the job less enjoyable as time went on.
Staff were lovely.
I learned many new programmes and dealt with stakeholders from many cultural and socio-economic backgrounds.
Pros
Good Leave, Good Salary, Parking
Cons
Not very challenging
