    Disapproves of CEO

    I worked at Think Education Group for more than a year

    Pros

    Most students friendly & eager. Concerns about mostly online subjects which is concerning with more of this mode on the way.

    Cons

    Unsupportive workplace, staff over worked, constant change as you expect from current RTO. Unfortunately appears that it's all about the students ends up being all about the finances. Disappointing work environment. Change constant.

    I have been working at Think Education Group part-time for more than 8 years

    Pros

    Some of the lecture rooms are decently equipped and set up. Many of the contract academic staff are hard working, loyal, and professional people. Unfortunately they have no control over anything.

    Cons

    All flash and glitz, and no substance. Unless you play the corporate ego game and become one of the "in-crowd" you are dumped with twice the workload of some loud mouth, egocentric, waste of space, and set impossible tasks. Then when the very problems you warned about become reality, you are held responsible, and bullied, whilst you watch the person who set you those impossible task get rewarded or promoted. Complaints to HR about bullying from middle or higher management result in you being subjected to disciplinary action of some variety. Any attempt to uphold academic standards is squashed by unwritten rules and middle management (who themselves are under pressure from higher management) telling lecturers to pass students regardless of the quality of their work. I've made reports of massive plagiarism in assignments which have gone ignored by well-meaning middle management because 1) it will likely be shut down by higher management, and 2) they are sucked dry by the endless demands such that they simply do not have the will or energy to pursue such issues. I've been told to pass students who submitted rubbish, or who attempted an online quiz more than 10 times and still didn't reach the required pass mark. This would be disappointing in an arts course. In courses in health care, it is downright dangerous and ethically and morally disgusting. Students are no more than cash cows, and they are milked until they are dry, or until they leave in disgust. There is no sense of responsibility to the students, or to the wider professions represented by these courses. Morale is very poor, staff turnover huge, and no money or effort is expended on actually supporting decent staff. Instead money is spent on flashy projects which usually end up creating 2 new features and breaking 7 or 8 other functions which were previously working. The whole thing is a pretty facade, but underneath it is a festering puss ridden ulcer, and senior management are solely to blame. They are the ones creating nonsense projects, they are the ones recruiting poorly qualified and completely useless bullies for senior roles.
