Pros & Cons

  • Working alongside great scientific and technical staff to enable research and deliver results that are utilised in 'the real world' in a relatively short time frame has been fantastic. I've learned a huge amount about nuclear science and its applications, and been trusted with important lab work, analysis, software development and more.
  • Onsite sports.
  • Being the only nuclear reactor in Australia, the largest benefit of ANSTO is the unique work you undertake and the experiences that you can't obtain anywhere else in Australia.
  • The unique science and engineering challenges. It is a really great place to learn about a whole load of different industries and really expand your skills.
  • Participating in scientific research Some self-direction in project/rotation. Encouraging learning environment.Casual vibe in the workplace and friendly colleagues. Good flexibility with work times.
  • Difficult location to get to, depending where you live.
  • Being home to a nuclear reactor, the location of ANSTO is quite far away from the centre of Sydney and there are limited options for getting to work through public transport.
  • The low rate of employee turnover means that younger generations find it difficult to advance within the company.

Career Prospects
I wouldn't want to be anywhere else at this stage in my career, the career progression in terms of acquiring skills and knowledge are second to none. In terms of promotion I think there are some ceilings that perhaps need to be lifted in order to recognize the true value of some employees.

ANSTO is very committed to CSR and takes very seriously the social and environmental impacts it has on the wider community.

Culture
There is no after hours culture at my company, but the culture at work is one of working together and helping each other out. I think there are areas of the business where this might not be as apparent, but I try to interact with everyone with an open mind and friendly manner and that works 9 times out of 10.

Diversity

Diversity
There are a number of programmes and initiatives that aim to increase diversity and inclusion. There is still work to be done in these areas, but overall it is a relatively diverse company and is inclusive to all people regardless of race, sex or sexuality.
