Salary at The University of Melbourne
- Average rating for Salary, based on 15 reviews9.3 / 10
What are your thoughts on pay and bonuses at your company?
Pay is very generous for entry-level grad position
The University provides its graduates with a very attractive remuneration package that is well-above industry average.
Great graduate salary
I'm making good money for someone my age, I think. The University pays lower-middle level work well, but I do think that the increase in salary is not proportionate to the increase in responsibilities as your career progresses (not enough money from the work you do). This is making me consider whether I would move on later in my career to the private sector. That being said, money isn't my biggest motivator and I would prefer recognition from management over monetary incentives.
Very generous starting salaries with increments and indexation each year, plus bonuses at Christmas
The salary levels and superannuation contributions are great!
Pay and benefits are very attractive.
Pay is quite generous at the lower levels, though it perhaps does not increase as much as other corporates as you move up the chain. Bonuses are not common.
What are your company's best or most unusual perks? For example: free tickets, free dinners, moving expenses, taxis, pension, etc.
Free tickets, catered events, free seminars/lectures, standing desk
Depending on where you are placed, you get access to specific perks (free theatre shows is an example). The University also provides access to services for all staff, that ranges from discounts at art galleries, to medical care.
Discounted tickets to Melbourne Theatre Company.
The occasional lunch can be paid for (none as of yet in my new team), but other than that, I can't think of any "perks" I have received.
Access to free public lectures, student events and activities, Myki commuter club, and great maternity leave arrangements including a return-to-work bonus.
Amazing campus experience! Festivals and events right outside my office and beautiful campus grounds to explore. So far I have seen Gretta Ray and Tkay Maidza during my lunch hour as well as many other local acts!
It is difficult to establish what the perks are as dissemination of information is poor. The super at 17% is a great benefit though.
There are always free events on offer, ranging from specific presentations or seminars by famous researchers to networking opportunities. The location is also beautiful.
I cant think of any off the top of my head
