Poor management and bullying culture
Academic officer (Former Employee) –  Sydney NSW19 May 2019
Such a terrible work culture. Management are bullies. The staff morale is poor playing mind games .Hiding information in training. Old staff bullying new staff so yo make new staff struggle with work to impact performance. The wages are poor. Management on the old staff side on things treat new staff like dirt. I feel for the students as I feel they do not get what they paid for.
Pros
Non
Cons
Long hours, bullying, staff with no moral

Very good atmosphere and friendly work environment
Lecturer (Current Employee) –  Sydney NSW17 April 2019
Very good atmosphere and a friendly work environment in a great location in The Rocks in Sydney.
It's a professional university with a strong focus on core subjects and industry training with an expertise sharing ethos where academics do not silo their knowledge.

This place was terrific before the new DOS was appointed in May 2018.
ELICOS Teacher (Former Employee) –  Sydney Central Business District NSW8 January 2019
I was a casual teacher in the English language division. It was a great place to work until the new DOS took over. Staff were leaving by the week, and the focus was on getting teachers to do as much as possible for free. They did not adhere fully to the awards as per legislation. I spent about 25 hours within a five week period, doing marking for free. Some of the casual lecturers were also paid under the award.

Facilities are great, as are the teachers. Pitty about management.
Pros
You have your own desk, plenty of free food and great facilities in the class rooms.
Cons
Complete abuse of teacher expectations.

Best University to study with
International Student (Current Employee) –  Port Wakefield SA19 November 2017
Aside from the 24hours facility with free of all amenities, coffee, tea, milk, water, and etc. Torrens facilitators are open door service, were they can be of assistance to you at anytime on the campus or on emails whenever you need them. Very harmonious environment and learning classrooms and very nice faculty and staff.

It’s been a best choice to be with Torrens.
Pros
24hr facilities, free all amenities

Not the best workplace, but suitable for temp/casual employment within the Sydney CBD
International Admissions Advisor (Former Employee) –  Sydney NSW19 June 2017
Lots of positive experiences: free coffee/tea, brekkie, and a close walk to my home in Sydney.

Lots of negative experiences: inadequate/poor training provided by incompetent employees... Consistent full-time staff turnover 1-3 people per month during my 6-month temp contract. Restructuring of leadership and rebranding of university was both chaotic and unnerving for long-term employees as many of their jobs were made redundant, hence several temps were brought in... Much valuable knowledge lost in the transition.

Overall: a decent workplace for a casual/temp employee, but not for the long run.

A place once great with lots of potential, but not anymore
Course and Careers Advisor (Former Employee) –  Adelaide SA15 April 2017
Torrens University was acquired by Think Education, who fired 75% of the staff, or drove them from their jobs. The takeover, the transition period, constant changes and discontinuity makes it a challenging place to want to work at.
Pros
The students and on site Torrens campus staff are lovely
Cons
The office politics from Think Education staff left a lot to be desired
