Job Culture
Where autonomy and innovation are paramount
Time Management Project Training & Support Lead (Former Employee) –  Brisbane QLD28 November 2016
Affinity employees experts in required field. Human resources are just that, a resource. A resource is used when required and discarded when no longer required.
The culture is very autonomous and innovative. It is a great place to work if you like contract work (which I do). It is fast moving, ever changing and dynamic.
If job security is important to you then this is not the place for you.
If autonomy, flexible work-life, and organisational change on a daily basis is interesting to you then AEG is the place for you.
I really liked working here, and I enjoyed the fast-pace and different tasks every day.
If you set a target you are expected to reach it, and the could include long hours, but on the other hand if you can catch a break you can extend your lunch hour or leave early. As long as you get the project work completed, and everything you need to do is done before your leave then it is up to you how you spend your time. The culture of autonomy, innovation and meeting your targets is all up to you to achieve.
Pros
Autonomous, dynamic and innovative
Cons
Human resources are treated as resources

Head office
Finance Manager (Former Employee) –  Brisbane QLD4 February 2019
Working in the head office was a ok place to work.

The IT structure failing almost daily added to increased stress levels
and the IT department representative showed little knowledge or care.

the company has many other benefits, although I am not sure these benefits are fed down to the child care centre staff.

Workload required staff to work over 12 additional hours a week to manage and meet management expectations. Understaffing is an issue in some departments.

The company only recently brought in a mental health program following my recommendation, however, little implementation has occurred.

Staff and colleagues are quick to stab you in the back when things go wrong.

only stayed as long as i did because they overpay the staff

Job Culture
A very disappointing experience
Teacher (Former Employee) –  Brisbane QLD31 December 2018
Started working at Affinity due to the wonderful philosophy of the manager. After the manager changed, so did the culture at the centre. High staff turnover and occupancy halved. Profit was their primary concern rather than the education and care of the children. HR need to listen to the concerns of staff on the floor rather than managers who can talk the talk
Pros
The vision of Affinity Educatin Group is inspiring
Cons
Their vision is not possible when profit comes first
