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.

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

No royalty to current staffs - when it’s time to renew contract, they offer positions to external applicants who they believe are better for the jobs over people who are already doing the job. Then the management gets turned down by those external applicants and the place is understaffed. Difficult to get leave. Many after-hour shifts.

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.
Pros
decent pay, Eap, a job that helps people
Cons
overwork, poor work culture

ACT Health has a bad culture. Many staff feel undervalued. Bullying and Harassment is rampant. Don’t try to challenge it as is it quickly disregarded.
Life balance family friendly NOT. God forbid your child is unwell or even critically ill and require Emergency hospital stay. Your time out of the office is a massive inconvenience.

Don’t have children, everything is great. Single professional even better for you.

Focus on patient outcomes and inclusion in the care planning was rewarding
Fiscal management was a challenge while providing quality services to the community.



Most rewarding aspect was always the interaction with patients and staff.
