Department of Justice and Community Safety Employee Review

Good work but still trying to find its feet

DJSC is a great place to work but it's in a state of flux and the vision is not clear. It's a work in progress and I expect to see a much better workplace by the end of 2019. There's significant lack of resources in training and ensuring staff development outside of internal training mechanism. There's a lot of autonomy in higher VPS roles but also a lack of guidance or mentorship from executives or senior management. Overall it's a great place to work if you land on a good project but that's not always guaranteed

Pros

flexible work environment, autonomy

Cons

lack of staff development

Too many casualisation of positions even though this is a public service entity

Too many casualisation of positions even though this is a public service entity that should be setting example for private companies. Short term contracts means that you are constantly stressed psychologically due to job insecurity.

Pros

Generally nice work culture and generous annual and sick leaves

Cons

High turnover in vacancy means team growth and bonding are frequently disrupted, which leads to stress/overwork for employees as vacant positions are not filled on time

not now. I will provide an assessment in future. There has been a period of transformation occurring in the department. When things settle, I will provide a review.

Constant bullying and toxic work culture.

I worked at Corrections Victoria, Forensic Intervention Service and used to be called Specialised Offender Assessment and Treatment Service. The management there are bully and unfriendly. You wont have a say at work and they constantly make threat to put you under performance if you cannot make 100% KPI. Some seniors there have been there for so long and they lost their passion. When you ask them questions, they would just ignore you. Worst place to work.
