Poor Management and Workplace Culture - WOULD NOT RECOMMEND
OSHC Educator (Former Employee) – Canberra ACT – 4 September 2019
* When I first started I was given no induction whatsoever for my position as an OSHC Educator. Whilst I thought that was very unprofessional of the company, I did develop skills of independence through self/observational learning as there.
* Pays quite well
* Management - I have had a long list of jobs in the past with abusive managers, 'leaders', underpayment but none as horrible to work with as in this organisation. I had several incidents where I had to inform HR of workplace discrimination and harassment and the report was ignored. As a result of it, I lost a lot of hours and was moved to a service (without being informed) the furthest possible distance for me to travel.
*Workplace Culture - Throughout my 3 years of work for Communities@Work, I worked in every single service across Canberra that the organisation caters to. Whilst there were some services that I believe were wonderfully run due to empathetic program coordinators understanding what the service needed, many fell to the issue of Nepotism. Nearly all co-workers I chatted with, agreed that receiving a promotion was close to impossible unless you had outside relations (family, friends) with program coordinators or management.
I would absolutely never recommend working for this organisation.
You can do better!
