    Approves of CEO

    I have been working at Monash University part-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Good rate of pay for student job.

    Cons

    As a casual you can be held back by bureaucracy. If you work for multiple divisions of the university you have to be paid the same across all jobs. This puts individuals in the position of choosing between career advancement by accepting a promotion necessitating you to quit your other jobs or keeping multiple lower skilled jobs where you will get more hours.

    Advice to Management

    Review HR policy Re: employees working multiple jobs needing the same pay rate. It holds many of your high achieving junior staff back.
