A relaxed, supportive, great learning workplace
A very relaxed culture. Team stands by each other. No politics. Manager supports learning of new technologies. Work-life balance is more tilted towards life.
Lecturer in Melbourne VIC

It morphed from a strong sense of community to a corporate monolith
When I began as an academic in the late 90s it was such a fun place to work and there was a lot of administrative support to assist with teaching and more personalised support for students. Staff in my area freely connected and collaborated and teaching was reasonably well regarded, which says a lot. It has gradually succumbed to 'brand over substance', research over teaching and real estate over people. Many layers of frontline support for students have gone and been replaced with automated processes and middle management. When I left after 20 years it felt more like a bank than an educational institution- and this might suit some people, but not me. University websites are clunky and hard to navigate, big on glossy pictures and hard to extract specific information. Melbourne's website is one of these and it's symbolic of how it runs. It's IT support is incredibly understaffed for the sheer volume of equipment and locations. Good things : you will find really lovely people in both teaching and administration (called 'professional' at uni). I always enjoyed working with students. The campuses have a nice physical environment and are well connected to public transport. Great libraries and librarians. Good superannuation.
