No work life balance. Staff are not respected very toxic. management in asylum seekers program don’t value the staff it’s all about pleasing immigration department. Some other programs are great as managers are great. Good organisations but you have to be in the right team.

Team Leaders and Managers are friends with certain staff who gets away with what they want. Managers are in for the money. There is high staff turn over.

LWB, has some great aspects but the lack of support for their staff is really disappointing. The management has no interest in the safety of their staff and no understanding of the psychological affects their management style has on their staff. They let good staff go rather than fix their management culture.

Too many family members working in company. Bullying management. No support from HR Took 5 months for clearance and no communication in that time. Too many shortcuts taken by management. Lots of managers leaving or acting.
Cons
Inconsistencies in roster. Inconsistent work rules.

LWB only care about making money. They only follow the law when it is financially viable. They put the client and the worker at risk. Many mistakes are made by the workers and the Managers turn a blind eye. They just dont care.

This organisation is all about making money, the management is racist and very incompetent. I worked with them on Nauru and all they were worried about was keeping the government happy and couldn't care less about the refugees. The management is extremely incompetent.

The workplace culture appears to be very inconsistent, very few chances to advance within the Organisation. It can be extremely difficult to discuss matters of concern with Upline Managers,
Cons
long hours very little Positive Support from Mangers

Horrible company to work for . For example, at the beginning they make you do a computer training in which you see examples of things that happen during the Care Sessions. They tell you some 10 times that even if you believe or know that your Manager won't like it, you have to report all significant incidents. That's what I did and my Manager didn't like it so she made my life very difficult until I left.

Great company to work for if you choose to stay an individual with a moderate support from upper management as a day to day occupation and issues within team based banter and support when challenging issues presented themselves.

Over the three day placement, I encountered a lot of new but interesting obstacles. My typical workday consisted of working alongside people in an office with many busy and important people. The hardest part of my placement was getting used to working in an office environment, but this also came with many advantages, through getting a firsthand experience of what office places are like. I developed many new skills including, communication, patience, teamwork and administration.

Growing facilities, dedicated staff, can be a lack of stability at management level. Complex behaviours can be stressfull. Great learning experience.

I really enjoyed working at LWB. I did my social work student placement at the aged care program. The program offered Home care package and Commonwealth home support services.
