Poor Unsupportive Management

Management do not reply even in urgent situations. Mixed Management directives and consequences blamed on staff. Staff issues (gossiping and ethical job performance issues ignored).

A very challenging environment to work with.

Looking after and working with clients that require assistance is the rewarding part of the industry.Mid level management is controlling and inexperienced makes day to day tasks difficult. Lacking leadership skills. Unclear and untrustworthy workplace where staff misconstrue information.

Unprofessional company with disregard for clients in care. High staff turn over due to poor management. Understaffed so no appropriate supervision for the nature of the work.

Supportive and encouraging

The organization's strong commitment to its employees was evident through regular team building activities, training opportunities, and flexible work arrangements. They placed great importance on recognizing and appreciating their staff, creating a positive and motivating environment. Additionally, their focus on mental health support for employees highlighted their dedication to our well-being. Overall, Life Without Barriers provided a supportive and enriching workplace that allowed me to grow both personally and professionally while delivering quality care to clients.

Working within the CARE principles with clients and staff

Working across the Quality role in a highly supportive team with the most incredibly knowledgeable, kind, and supportive Manager. Able to take short notice breaks and work flexibly, from home, or the office.


Flexible working. Financial benefits such as, Salary Packaging, MyCar discounts etc.


Busy role. Workload means extra unpaid hours to get everything done.

Worst place I have ever worked

Overworked, overworked and overworked! Management micro manages and are extremely quick to put employees onto PIPS without any substantial grounds. Worked here for 5 yrs new Management are horrid offer no support and as a result can't keep staff. I DO NOT recommend working for LWB aged care sector unless you enjoy being yelled at like a child and micro managed.

Fun and supportive environment

I’ve worked at LWB for 5 years and it’s the most supportive workplace I’ve ever worked at. LWB has wonderful values which you can see in the leadership. Managers care about their clients and their staff. It’s a very busy and fast paced place to work, no day is the same, and if you are a proactive person who takes initiative and enjoys the challenges working with the clients, it’s a wonderful place to work. Management are supportive of your ideas and assist with any challenges you face. Unfortunately, there are a lot of coworkers who expect management to do their work for them and there can be a lot of negativity on the floor which is toxic, but if you are client focused there is a great group of supportive peers amongst the negative and lazy ones. Managers have a lot placed on them and have very big caseloads of staff to manage and clients to support which makes it hard to get time with them but they always go above and beyond (and often in their own time) to help their clients and staff. Training is mainly online or specific to client needs when plans are updated or changed. LWB is a bit behind the times in ICT and working in the community space can be difficult to access systems. Having your own smart phone is a must! Rostering team are not great at communicating and it can be challenging to find a good work-life balance when shifts are added to your roster within 7days. You need to check your roster regularly to make sure shifts haven’t been added without being notified. Recent restructures seem to have changed these processes.

A Nightmare Workplace: Chaos, Neglect, and Disillusionment

Working at Life without Barriers has been nothing short of a nightmare with chaos and dysfunction reigning supreme. While there are a few positives such as market salary, rostered days off, and hybrid working, they are overshadowed by a plethora of challenges that plague this organisation.Challenges Faced:Siloed Teams:It's astonishing how disconnected the various teams are within this company. The left hand has no clue what the right hand is doing, leading to a frustrating lack of collaboration and coordination. This silo mentality hampers progress and creates unnecessary hurdles at every turn.Poor Planning and Communication at the Senior Management Level:The senior management fail miserably in their duties. Their inability to plan effectively and communicate clearly is mind-boggling. This lack of direction and guidance trickles down to every level of the organisation, resulting in confusion, wasted time, and missed opportunities.Lack of Accountability and Support from Senior Management:One would expect senior management to be pillars of support and accountability. Unfortunately, that is not the case here. Instead, they shirk their responsibilities and conveniently shift the blame onto others down the chain. Their lack of support leaves employees feeling abandoned and disheartened.Overworked and Stressed Workforce:The workload is unrelenting and overwhelming. Employees are constantly pushed to their limits, resulting in extreme stress and burnout. It is no wonder that talented individuals eventually leave, disillusioned and exhausted by the constant demands placed - 


Market salary, rostered days off, hybrid working


Overworked demoralised staff, chaotic work environment, lack of transparency, ownership and support from senior management.

Zero work ethicWhat is a typical day like for you at the company?Knowing other staff aren’t doing their job correctly but have friends in the right places to get away with it

Really poor management/ career development

Very unprofessional environment, gossip and drama taken more seriously than a persons growth and career development They didn’t have correct practices in place to ensure this wasn’t a re occurring issue either

Inability to complete the role required due to the enormity of task expectations for completion. Unrealistic workloads and unsupportive senior management.
