I cannot speak for all of Melbourne University, but my area has particularly low morale and very gossipy politics. There is a lot of grudges and talking behind each other's back, and I would recommend somebody looking to get a job here reconsider for the moment as the atmosphere has been dull for about a year. I hope for the sake of everybody there it gets better, but overall it has not been a good experience for me.

Good work life balance but different to corporate culture but collaborative, friendly culture. The drawback is university give preference to candidates who have previous university experience. More of public service like culture who talks theory in interview.

In my 5 years I have not experienced a single retirement since everyone who is leaves after a couple of years and the rest have internally resigned, doing minimum work and leave after ~15y because they can’t stand it anymore. It stems from a lack of understanding of the individuals, limited professional development and a stiff career progression process.

Excellent well organised work schedule, excellent Coordinator and responsable of the work placement. Hardest part and challenging for all of us was to push us to the limit and learn every time something new and applying the knowledge and skills with the team. I really found amazing learning experience.

Stimulating, supportive and reassuring. The hardest part of the job was balancing work with studies and meeting deadlines on time as well as developing frameworks to collaborate with others.

The job culture here was easygoing, but never lazy. I was able to strike a great work/life balance and could work remotely when I had to. The flip-side to this was that management was occasionally haphazard, and opportunities for advancement were vague.
