Office & Workplace at The University of Melbourne
- Average rating for Workplace, based on 15 reviews7.7 / 10
Please comment on your company's office space, location and facilities. And while we're at it, please tell us a little about the dress code.
All offices are recently refurbished or going through that process. Transitioning into sitting/standing desks. Pleased with facilities overall. Dress code ranges but smart casual is acceptable. Full suits are rare.
Excellent location in Melbourne. Offices vary but always comfortable. dress code is smart casual
This depends on the building. Some offices are very up to date with sit/stand desks, others have very old furniture. Dress code also varies widely according to where you work. I'd say it's generally not particularly corporate. Most people dress smartly but not in business clothes.
Most of them are VERY old, very 70s/80s and run down. I've had a really nice office, and two daggy ones. The biggest issues are the dustiness, the recycled air (no windows that open), the heat inside, and the poor standard of bathrooms. I also feel quite claustrophobic as the only windows we have face into another building so I can't see any sky at all. Dress code in my current office is VERY casual (jeans and top/jumper), but in my last office it leant more towards business attire (women didn't wear suits, but would wear heels/heeled boots and a dress/work pants and blouse).
Some buildings on campus are old and in need of renovation, whilst others are brand new and highly rated. My office is only a few months old, so it's still having improvements made each week, but is very modern. Every desk has the option to become a standing desk. The space is open plan, encouraging cross-collaboration across the office. There isn't a dress code as such - it's appropriate to be casual some days, and more dressed up on others, as the occasion and weather suits.
The office spaces around the campus are really diverse in quality and location. My office could use a bit of a face lift but other offices in newer buildings are great. The dress code varies quite a bit depending on the day and the department. People tend to have a more unique style than in more corporate organisations.
Most offices are decently equipped with workstations, climate control and electronic security access. Some buildings have poor ventilation. Dress code varies by team but is usually business casual except in Chancellery where it is business. Casual Fridays are observed by some teams.
It varies from building to building. Some are excellent, others are older.
It often depends on the team
