Coordinator in Sydney NSW
on 16 September 2022
Typical government culture
Supportive workplace, flexible working is fairly well supported. My managers have been very understanding whenever I had to take time off work due to sick kids or personal reasons. But it’s a typical government culture - bureaucratic, sometimes you do work for the sake of being busy rather than to actually add value, approaches to tasks sometimes don’t make sense, quality of management is hit & miss, and it’s pretty much impossible to fire unproductive or belligerent staff. Not great for skills development (in some ways it can feel like you’re going backwards - it is not a progressive organisation) but good if you want job stability and the flexibility to raise a family.

High work volume and top heavy management
Challenging workplace. High level and volume of work. High expectations with heavy workloads but very little management support and inadequate recourses and tools to work with.Intranet system a complete failure. Does not suit the work in terms of recording. Extremely difficult to navigate. Does not make practical sense. Lots of doubling up with the CS system and basically it is an in effective system for casework. Biggest issue in DCJ is the extremely poor management structure. Frequent micro management style. No support. Inadequate resources. Poor Human Resources

Great Supportive Workplace with Positive Workplace Culture & Team
Victims Services is a great place to work at. - A great positive workplace culture, a great team & supportive management. Great work & life balance, only thing is no job security long-term is offered.

Wouldn’t recommend
If you’re after work life balance and a positive environment look elsewhere. A lot of long standing staff that drive bad culture and it turns good workers away

better places to work.
The hardest part is not the inmates its the officers. Anyone that works there for more than 10 years are mad and have massive mental issues. The officers all turn on each other to get promoted, Terrible team environment.
