Challenging role.

Being a case manager is definitely not for everyone as it is a very challenging role but has its benefits. You can see the positives impact you are having in peoples life.

Job Culture

Culture of bullying protected by HR

The salary offered could never make up for the lack of training, nepotism and downward envy from people who have been in positions they are not qualified for too long. The turnover of staff should be seen as an indicator of performance of management, not the staff they supposedly look after (when they are not too busy at the tennis, on the boards of companies and "working from home"). If you want to sit around earning too much money to prove that you can take a two hour lunch or reduce the new recruits to tears by assigning tasks without support, this is the perfect job for you. If you want to actually do your job, up skill and work as a team, keep walking because despite policy and guidelines that say you will be doing these things you'll be too busy pulling knives out of your back (and front) to do your job. Don't expect to be rewarded for experience because that is threatening to the stuffy arrogant seasoned bullies who will use it to make you look like a know it all or segregate you until you question your abilities and don't expect your executive management to have any qualifications appropriate for the job they get paid for or have any issues dealt with by HR (have a look at how many lawyers work for HR, that'll tell you how much money they spend protecting the vile culture that is as accepted as the "casual racism" and high turnover). Apart from that, it's a beautiful place to work if you ignore the previous statements...

Pros

Three hours of lunch if you are invited.

Cons

Bullying protected, racism, ignorance and incompetent management leading to injury.

Job Culture

Difficult work environment within a maximum security correctional facility

Have spent previous two and a half years working in the Stores & Records wing of the Barwon Prison being a maximum security correctional facility. My position as a VPS2 employee offers little in the way of professional development and advancement. The work I performed in this role was onerous, labour intensive and not appropriately rewarded in respect of salary and conditions

Pros

Job Security

Cons

Long hours with little opportunity of professional development & advancement

Tough working conditions

Long 12 hour shifts with only an hour lunch break, you could possibly work 8 hours before getting your lunch break. Very little room for growth and personal development. Poor work culture with lots of employees off on stress leave or with work related injuries.

Pros

penalties for working weekends

Cons

long hours poor pay and bad management
