A collaborative and supportive workplace

Indeed Featured review

The most useful review selected by Indeed
A very collaborative and supportive work environment that is conducive to professional growth and learning. Flexible hours and an empathetic stance towards individual predicaments renders this institution one of the most employee-centred places to work in.

Poor management at all levels that enable a bullying culture and negative environment.

Poor management at all levels that enable a bullying culture and negative environment. Inexperienced and petty staff have replaced knowledgeable staff that were lost in restructures. More time is spent on micro-managing tasks and counting emails answered, than on actual content and helping students. Segregation of duties have resulted in boring jobs that provide no satisfaction, and work life balance is a joke. Don't work here!

Horrible place to work

Poorly managed and poor working environment. Avoid working at this “university” at all cost. Not a genuine place to be (or even study!). If you do go ahead with a job here, expect to be overworked with little appreciation. I’m speaking about the Law School in particular.


Long hours, poor management, everything really

The university does not provide opportunity to the international students of temporary visa people and always hire on the basis of reference given by one of the staff

Productive and Fun

Western Sydney provides opportunity throughout your employment to experience different fields. The professional development is second to none and totally recommend taking advantage of it. The culture is a fun and exciting with a true professional focus on there long/ short term values and views. With all that said the only downside is that I work in a department that had the most cohesive team ethic but management has been unsympathetic and self-absorb with is there self advancement which may cause unease at the best of times.

Good employer

Have good experience overall. I like the diversity, inclusion, and campus environment. I enjoyed helping many students with their essay writing questions.

A workplace

Learned a lot and enjoyed a workplace with so many opportunities both in house and externally. It is a shame the job security is so poor because it is a fantastic place to be.

There is very little support/opportunity for staff to advance ..

Not a very pleasant culture to work in, bullying is rife, too many restructures and the loss of experienced staff to inexperienced people and that's the good points !

Very good place to research

There are many research facilities and many good scientists, so it is the best place to research. Particularly climate change in agricultural and forest.

Great workplace environment for a teaching experience

- Great time teaching, not as much fun administratively. - Often difficult to plan your hours from semester to semester - Many different campuses always going the opposite way of rush-hour traffic

Productive and Fun work place

Productive and Fun work place. I was lucky to be surrounded by all wonderful and amazing colleagues. There were quite senior colleagues but they never let me feel I am new. They were very helpful,motivating and patient while training me. They always maintained a positive energy at work. Loved working there and miss everyone now.

An excellent place to make a difference to students in the West!

Continuous improvement of services. Business case, SLA, Incident management, problem management, change management, project management, change management and knowledge management. Helping people improve their processes and ICT systems in line with the organization strategy.. The hard part was being handed sub standard solutions and fixing it operationally. My key learning were a growth in end to end service management and vendor management in a large scale organization.
