Worst place I ever worked
Bullying rife, bought in consultants but nothing changed. Facility Manager late to arrive, first to leave. One Pca related to coordinator of Nursing home.
Could not be trusted

Just a number/high stress and understaffed
As a pca you are treated badly by nurse and management staff. Bullying is rife amongst staff and you have no room for advancement. All units are understaffed and you are ran off your feet all shift. Management do not care about the staff working at ballarat health services only their bottom lines
Pros
Plenty of work available
Cons
Bullying, high stress environment with little support from management and other staff

Healthy Learning environment, mostly supportive supervisors
Ballarat Base Hospital has been a very good start of my career in Australia. Most of the time medical work force is very supportive, understanding and flexible. 80 percent of the times roster is maintaining a good work family life balance. consultants are approachable `and supportive.
The hardest part of job so far was my surgical night rotation. 13 hour of night shift takes the life out of you, specially if it were to be for a whole term.(3 months)

Emergency department have got a best working culture , enjoys the most working in Emergency department.

Like any other place, we do have some trouble makers in team who can be non supportive, bully and racist at times. and they are on every level from nursing staff to consultant level.
Pros
flexible hours, healthy learning environment to grow
Cons
few non supportive staff members.

Worst place to work - stay away!!
I worked at BMHS for two years and it was the worst years of my life. Google 'Ballarat mental health service bullying' and you'll find all you need to know. Bad practice, terrible management, and horrifying working conditions. It's just plain negligence and dangerous for clinicians.
Pros
No pros
Cons
Everything

Awful
Not a happy place to work especially in the nursing homes. Bullying was rife and came from every direction. Staff dobbed on each other, content to get others in trouble. This approach was encouraged by management.
Expected to attend meetings out of work hours.
Pros
None
Cons
Amount of work, you are expected to achieve.
