Worked with Bupa 5 yrs. Good colleagues. Very competitive company / industry. KPIs unrealistic to demographic. Uniform supplied. Pay was good compared to other similar companies in industry though we had the added tasks of outreach activities required to help grow customer base and KPIs.

Training was comprehensive and provided.


Would have remained with company but request for 6mths leave rejected (all good, understand why), so left as the time off was required at the time. Heard they closed the branch approx 8 mths later.
Pros
Reasonable pay, uniforms, bonus opportunities, great colleagues
Cons
Unrealistic KPI sales targets to demographic

Staff morale was so miserable and low that everybody was just turning up to their shift because financially they had to, not because they enjoyed working for Bupa. Staff are treated poorly, management always had their own agenda, and Bupa couldn't care less about your workload, stresses or mental health. I ended up walking out on the job -- FIRST TIME IN MY LIFE -- in a panic attack from the stress, and ended up never returning on Drs orders - and not one phonecall from Bupa to ask how I was doing or anything. All management could ask me was what my handover notes were, and who I could I get as replacement. Company culture is shot from the top - I worked in the aged care sector in a business type role and it was the LONGEST 3 months of my life. Got a Bupa Leavers email asking me about my experience and why I left - completed and filled it out, stating the decline in my mental health due to work load pressures and lack of support and did not get a response from anyone in HR. This company has left a very sour taste in my mouth!!
Pros
The residents, discounted health insurance
Cons
Lack of respect from management, nobody cares about your workload, no follow up, offshore accounts department, convoluted work processes, low staff morale.

Staff avoid work and treat residents badly (as many have dementia & can't defend themselves). No managerial oversight, with hierarchy too worried about their own self-advancement. Residents neglected. Wouldn't keep my dog there, let alone a grandparent!
Pros
None
Cons
Toxic work culture

Business Administrator part of leadership team. Heavy workload, fast paced work environment. Support for staff offered. On the job training and internal courses to complete. Hardest part of the job was competing deadlines. Most enjoyable part of the job was working with colleagues and sense of achievement when tasks completed.

Staff turn over extremely high due to constant employment of bad managers. One manager even stated 'we take the fish John west rejects' and then they do all their damage because they are incompetent, ride it out as long as possible, update the experience on their resumes and move on to the next aged care provider! All the while being offered financial incentives to save the company money at all costs and guess who misses out??? The residents! On everything!!! One department goes over in their budget so management takes it from another department's budget which only disadvantages residents and increases the workload for staff. Nurses and carers are kindhearted people by nature and this company certainly knows how to exploit that.

Very low pay. The salary was inclusive of super which meant the base salary was extremely low. I became very sick due to the stressful nature of the job and had a terrible team leader who was not supportive at all.

I was looked over for a promotion and lost to a brand new, barely experienced person and it really affected my motivation to remain. Very political if you want to proceed up the chain.

Bupa was good experience for me to help out the people over 60 years old, it was hard most of the times but I was getting there. seeing people in bupa made me become who I am and work hard for myself and showed me to help out my family and give them explanations.
