Work & Life Balance


Administration Assistant in Canberra ACT
on 10 June 2019
You have to have a real passion for public health
You will be overworked if you do not thoroughly respect your own start, lunch and finish times. Most departments don't like taking on criticism of their work so if you notice something wrong you have to present it to them as nonjudgmental as possible or face being ignored or worse being blamed. You learn a lot about the public health care system and a little about the private if you are lucky. If you want to work admin but aren't fussy about where take a temporary contract job here so that you leave on good terms with management and head for GP practices who might appreciate your experience with the health industry. The hardest part of the job is the over work and clashing expectations from superiors. There are good parts but for me those were localized to my specific work area.

Toxic workplace that values chaos and politics over caring for people
I lasted 17 weeks at the ACT Health Directorate and I would never work there again. Red flags from day one in relation to blame culture, complete lack of mature leadership, zero value placed on skills and experience - jobs for mates! - and total absence of emotional intelligence at the higher levels. I'm amazed that more people haven't died because of the incompetence and unprofessionalism displayed by 'managers' at the Directorate. No accountability. This workplace is run like a dictatorship. Like consultation? Forget it.You won't be asked before resources are reallocated but make no mistake, you will be raked over the coals when deliverables aren't met. I was disgusted by my experience and can only hope that an external agency is brought in to review and completely restructure this shameful excuse for a public office.

Not a supportive work culture
Management look to cover up problems not solve them, and are happy to work staff members into the ground. Under- staffing and unsupportive management create's a 'every- man for himself' vibe in the team. No debriefing system in place for inpatient mental health nurses, many showing signs of PTSD and some saying they felt scared walking into the ward everyday. ACT Health does not value their staff. Salary is ok but doesn't cover the additional responsibilities or overtime as a result of staff shortages.

Fast paced
Data area is fast paced as I work with all kinds of data requests. Working here helped me understand various aspects of data. I have got opportunity to work with different internal and external stakeholders .

Very relaxed environment with a compassionate and effective management
I had an excellent year of work at ACT Health where they gave most of the privileges of a permanent employee in spite of being a contractor plus top payment. Great Work Life Balance. Plus, when I collapsed at work, the whole staff did everything to save my life and I am still alive and well to be grateful to ACT Health. THANK YOU ACT HEALTH
