  1. TAFE Teacher, Technician Higher Education

    Former Employee - Teacher
    Former Employee - Teacher

    I worked at Royal Melbourne Institute Of Technology (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Creative environment. Tree lined campus. Opportunity for further education. Working with creative peers and young people. Security of full time adequately paid employment....eventually. Vibrant learning environment with state of art facilities.

    Cons

    Big organisation has lost sight of the individual. Graduation at a vast stadium may be the most economical way to do it but it sure kills recognition of the input ie. blood sweat and tears that the student has put in to achieve their diploma, degree, doctorate. Just one of many thousands getting their certificate, 2 seconds of fame and a very bored audience of family and friends. Insufficient teacher support, bullying within departments, 'jobs for the boys'. Class sizes too large. International students accepted up to 4 weeks after start date. Makes life difficult for student, teacher and rest of class.

    Pros

    Great research facilities and supportive collaborative colleagues. The uni has made great efforts to improve the campus and it will soon be the best for students in Melbourne. Convenient location in CBD. You work with bright people in science and can teach to bring out the best in students.

    Cons

    The research efforts are rather narrow grouped into key fields. If you are not trendy it will be difficult to get support for your research applications- so the ARC money goes up the hill to the other place. Financial office are complete slugs and obstructive

    Advice to Management

    RMIT has great students and academic staff. the back office needs to be brought into the 21st century to bring out the best in good staffers


  6. A good experience finishing in 2006 but got a bit political

    Pros

    The last two years have seen significant changes that have removed the good aspects

    Cons

    Management and the fact that they have decided to implement a strong hierachal structure. Flexible working arrangements are a joke!!!

    Advice to Management

    Start to listen to staff at the coal face.

    Pros

    The Higher Education sector has a lot to offer in terms of benefits (superannuation, leave, etc). More people that I have been in contact are friendly and willing to help through un-informal co-operation throughout the university.

    Cons

    The organisation is very hierarchical and sometimes lacks cohesive university-wide strategy that would enforce co-operation across the university. Be prepared to interpret complex and often in-flexible policies that tend to make simple processes complex. The internal processes and policies sometimes make it very hard to know who to contact to get the expected outcomes.

    Advice to Management

    More consultation throughout all levels of the organisation when planning changes and upgrades would be beneficial to ensure successful project outcomes. A lot of great ideas and projects with the aim to reduce work-load end up causing additional work for lower levels of management and other staff in trying to get the expected outcomes.
