Ex employee (Former Employee) – RAH – 10 October 2017
The more you put in to your job, the more Management expect you to do. Management is a girls club. They didn't get there because they worked for it. It's who they knew. The New 2.3 Billion RAH has not solved any of the staffing problems. They just moved all the problems to the new site. They only employ on TEMPORARY contracts and throw you away when not useful anymore. Bullying is rife and that's from management themselves. So there is nowhere to turn for help.
SA Health consists of a poor structure of departments, ever-changing and ever-fluctuating and management are bullies and non-concerned with the welfare of their employees. They are supported fully by HR who condone their disgusting behaviour. An organisation divided into too many management styles and not compassionate enough to treat employees with dignity. The executive level don't care about anybody but themselves and their career trajectory, and the rest beg and kiss and wipe the executives rear ends with toilet paper.
An organisation that condones bullying and thorough mismanagement of all departments is not deserving of respect.

Great work environment with friendly staff who are very supportive and encourage further training and leadership roles. Staff are respectful of each other with many staff from different cultural backgrounds.

Registered Nurse (Former Employee) – Adelaide SA – 12 February 2017
As an previous employer I found the sub culture of the Royal Adelaide Hospital difficult. They were not accepting of new ideas from fresh individuals. They tended to find change difficult acceptance harder. Once accepted the culture is very supportive. Change of staff is a constant. Becoming diverse in attitudes important. The employment is challenging. With high expectations to accuracy and high performance. The education of staff is excellent. With the expectation of attendance of inservices almost every shift. Focus on patient care and attending to patients is paramount and the documentation reflects the high standards of care. Working into theSA Heath can be difficult but it is very rewarding.
Fun and relaxed working environment great work life balance.
Lead Scheduler (Former Employee) – Adelaide, SA – 7 August 2015
Typical day at work comprises of leasing with the Management team, Project Director and Clients in regards to project delivery and current status. I've learned that if there is no team work in all aspects of Project Delivery, Project tends to run late and more likely goes over budget and falls behind. Working with my co-workers is fun but at times challenging and reason being is lot of time they are under pressure and grossly understaffed they tend to take on lot more than they are required and tend not to update there progress on a regular basis. That was also the hardest part of my job, getting the right information about the status of there work because people are people and they tend to over exaggerate there progress just so they don't look bad in front of the management team and the client. Most enjoyable is getting to talk to people and recovering projects that are running behind, talking to the project leads and providing them with accurate schedule the one that they can rely upon. Once the project is on time and within the budget I find that rewarding that I contributed directly or indirectly for the successful completion of the project.
Work life ballance is great.
Government workers tend not to follow timelines and fall behind way to many times.
