Lilydale Lakeside Childrens Centre

Lilydale Lakeside is set in a quiet location. There is a great sense of community amongst families and educators. Unfortunately we are paid award rate and not above like other childcare centres in the area.

Management hirarchy

It's a nice group of people bit atmosphere varies a lot subject to line of accountability and old friendship network. Managers spend lots of time in sustaining a culture of looking good at all cost.

Pros

Opportunities to progress in certain circles

Cons

Low paid, long unpaid hours, keep everyone happy culture

The management, Administration staff, and peer educators all worked together with common goals.

Working within the campus I was contracted to was a rewarding experience. All people working in that environment had the one goal of delivering high quality product to its clients. The focus was on continual improvement and this fueled individual efforts to engage and deliver beyond expectations.Support from management was a key factor in successful outcomes.

Pros

Good community of educators

Cons

Sometimes simple things would get a little out of control and make for a longer day.

Lovely staff and grounds.

My review of Box Hill Institute is that I loved working there, unfortunately the students thought they knew more than the teachers and complained if they got something wrong and failed. Management thought the opinion of the students was worth more than sending safe practitioners out into the community (nurses). "Students At The Heart".

Pros

Team work, colleagues

Cons

Long hours, management

Great colleagues and teachers to work alongside

Every day is never the same as you could be providing outreach to clients, and working in the classroom with students. The team we had was one of the best teams I had as we provided support to one another and communication was always open and honest.

Great Company

Best workplace. Management are all great to work with. I love the variety the campus offers as no 2 days are the same. You may start the day in conferencing and finish in accomodation.

Pros

Great Environment

Progressive Company

Excellent company to work for. As a casual working full time on a month to month contract, I felt appreciated and respected. Managers were always available to give assistance.

Fantastic place to work

I worked as an automotive trainer. Great department. Clever but humble people, great work and team ethic. Professional team but plenty of laughter. Attention to detail, pride in what they do!.

Was once a good place to work due to a supportive team. However new management made the workplace even more stressful with a dictatorial approach

The life of an Educator is a demanding and unforgiving role, with very long & unpaid overtime hours, encroaching on weekends & family time. Yet if you love what you do and are good at it with proven results, your experience, passion , dedication and creative ability will count for nothing as the 'customer is always right'. This new approach to educators, by newly appointed managers will be it's down fall; ( introduced as a new method to keep students at the Institute for financial gain) and will only continue to get worse due to a huge dip in student numbers. The culture of encouraging students to actively 'blame educators' when faced with poor results is laid squarely at management's feet, and has led to the development of a spoilt monolith that will not be tamed or be put back in it's bottle.

Potential but not on the move

Great, mostly warm and friendly kind people. Little to no investment in technology which holds the organisation back and forces high performing folk into administrative low level roles.

Pros

Health culture across most of the organisation.

Cons

Very hierarchical, with a lack of accountability observed at mid to senior leadership levels.

New Style of workplace with conflicting management

Though an amazing place to work , struggles with changing managers and supervisors , as well as unclear guidelines and pay cycles made the Institute hard to work for at times .

Employees are really kind, great working environment. I worked from 8:30 - 5pm, and some employees depends on departments leave early and/or start late. You can discuss with HR about working hour

Nice IT environment to work in. Great IT team to provide IT services all over the institution. Serving the student and teachers with IT related issues. Great place to work as an intern.

Not what I expected.

The manager of the department is only interested in the students being happy not in their academic progression. Some members of the staff are narrow minded and classify people into boxes without a reason.

A Day in the Office

Arriving early morning with a cuppa and switching my computer on is the morning ritual. Then comes the best part to Plan the day if its a Monday then a template for the whole weeks to do list is created. Office-works is great for manufacturing such great office supplies. The planned goals are then put into practice. By mid-morning I usually enjoy my morning snack and get back to helping clients from all walks of life. By the time its Lunch hour, I get my soothing melody music and enjoy lunch in the sun. The afternoon goes by helping clients, organizing papers, liaising with teachers and by the end of the day the planned tasks has already been completed and I head back home in the metro.

Pros

Great work content making me feel energetic at work.

Cons

Less Pay.

Just Average

Working in such a named institute is not as it looks like from outside. Work Culture is dry and no development opportunities are available. Network systems are too outdated and takes ages to load IT stuff.

Pros

Good name to refer to market when searching new opportunity

Cons

Mind set of the staff
