Give 110% but dont expect to be valued. Too much management and general staff turnover. Poor education support. Intense micromanagement.

Indeed Featured review

The most useful review selected by Indeed
Multiple senior management changes, inexperienced leaders and old, cumbersome systems and processes. Too many chiefs and micromanagement is rife. Speak up at your own peril.

Pros

Many colleagues exceptional

Cons

Too much turnover of senior leaders, systems and processes counter productive.

I feel so sorry for the Residents

Senior Management do NOT walk around and talk to Staff or Residents to see how things are running or if anyone has any queries or help or advise. PCA's just do their job, if THAT. They do not take time to talk to the Residents or be polite to them. The food served to the Residents is cheap and is worse than school camp food. Floors are always dirty and the Mercy Place Residence looks tired and unloved.

Pros

None

Cons

None

Good work/life balance vs endemic bullying from HR and upper mgt and pressure in increasing caseloads

Good work/life balance but lack of communication, transparency and support from upper management means there is constant pressure to deal with changes/expectations and to increase client caseloads which is unsustainable and stressful on staff. Profit driven. A bullying approach to HR is indulged to the extent that it seems strategic. This leaves staff feeling devalued and demoralised.

Pros

Work/life balance, hardworking client facing staff

Cons

Inhumane HR, lack of upper management support, unsustainable client caseloads, low pay

Pleasant work environment and great teamwork

My typical day at work entails, scanning and saving documents to the delegated file paths. Writing up word docs for cover letters. Attend to emails as required. Charging clients with ongoing fees. Use of Excel daily with keeping track of filed documents. Filing, printing etc Have learned a great deal around aged care processes in Accounts Receivable. Great workplace culture on the AR team, with a positive vibe, being compassionate and hospitable. At the moment we are migrating to a new financial system, which can be very challenging. The team I work with, along with helping and assisting each other is the most enjoyable part of my job.

Pros

non for profit, salary packaging

Cons

none

productive workplace

i like to be busy and challenged, to see a resident smile makes my day. i am willing and often do go beyond my work role e.g helping kitchen staff or helping cleaners etc. i have gained much confidence working at mercy health and have also gained much knowledge. i report immediately to managment risks, changes with residents and contribute to improving the residents lives to make it more enriching.

Good company to work for.

Matching the right carers to clients, answering phones & delivering quality Customer Services to Clients & Case Managers. I have learned all about the aged care industry. The hardest part of my job is when carers decline shifts. The most enjoyable part of my job is when I allocate a perfect match to clients & I receive positive feedback from the Case Managers.

Pros

able to take time away from the office for personal appointments

Cons

staying back to finish my tasks
