Chaotic at times poor leadership from managers, who have forgotten about patient care, they are more interested in gossiping and bullying. Poor and old practices, recovery is a word but very rarely is the patient provided with a recovery plan. Over-reliance on medication and very little information provided to patients on side effects. Very reactive and without any future planning. Individual staff (not management) are helpful and caring but core values are often forgotten.
Good place to work depending on dept. Pays well. Depending on your manager you can have good work life or be bullied. Biggest con is workplace bullying and not paying for overtime as work gets so busy expected to stay back to finish work. Lot of bullying and management dont care and turns a blind eye. Happens, a every hospital large or small. Made complaints, finally went to HR and above manager. However told by the manager who we had to go above, to keep things quiet that it never happened. No transparency. When one bully leaves another replces them and cycle happens all over again. Where do they find these ppl u wonder. Bullies get promoted is not uncommon due to weak managements. Work culture progressively getting poorer. Some nice people but some lazy managers. Managers only interested in meeting their KPI not about investing in staff.
Just the worst experience. Staff team culture was poor, with many senior staff underperforming in my opinion and getting paid very well to do very little except dodge work and gossip. The management was absolutely appalling. They were under qualified, uninformed, bullying, threatening, inept, lazy and unable to motivate or lead their team. I dreaded walking in the door every single day. This place is the reason I left public health for good (NSW Health Service). If I could give it zero stars I would.
Staff are overworked, barely taking their meal breaks and working unpaid overtime. Management turn a blind eye to this. Very high staff turnover. Job satisfaction poor due to limitations in aged care services available.
Poor work culture and unsupportive managers
NSLHD was a busy place to work, staff were often off for long periods of time due to different reasons which left those behind picking up the extra workload. Colleagues were great to work with. Management had a history of not taking action against bullying.

Is Indeed your favorite place to learn about companies?
No support to new employees. Very 'clicky' between existing employees. No work/life balance. No help to questions asked by either management and peer staff. Intimidation and bullying by senior executive management and peer staff.
Good money and government position
no work life balance and no support provided to new staff
Not any day is wasted. It is constantly about helping people in pain and need for care in any part of the work you do you always know that you are a part of an Area Health that is very pro-active. There may be some work that is distributed unfairly but at the end of the day I always think, the more work I do, the more I learn skills that no one can take away from me, and this gives me a sense of achievement.
