Great work/life balance

I worked for several different departments and locations in SLHD. I found that the overall work was great and I enjoyed the work. I felt like a lot of my colleague has fatigue and burn out, but kept going due to the job security. Management was all over the place, and they kept cutting funding which meant we had less and less support and high turn over on middle management. However, the work/life balance was the best and I would recommend them and I would work there again.

Great culture

I find the culture of working here is awesome. Being able to share ideas and having them listened to is a refreshing experience. The online education available is varied and relates to so many different areas in life.

Pros

Flexibility & catered A/H shifts

Cons

No access to internal job offers

Bullies

Bullies Women and Men. No interest from managers in career growth or appraisals. From top to management incompetents and favoritism. And multiple incidents of bullying and harrassment.

I’m appalled at this environment

Everyone’s overworked and exhausted. The workplace culture by mostly men and some women is get assaulted by your fellow workmate and YOU suffer the consequences for the rest of your time working there, even if you tell the police. You’ll be bullied and harassed and stalked. There will also be rumours spread about you that aren’t true. They will because no one will make them feel accountable. Don’t expect help from the management or any of your bosses, they will put a gag order on you

Pros

Just don’t work there

Cons

Lucky to still be alive

Productive and fun place to work

It is a good place to learn so many things and experience different cultures from all over the world. The hardest part of the job is always to see from the patient point of view and explaining them in a polite manner.

All above is correct

My experience at working with NSW has been a very stressful experience. So many strong personalities to deal with and never seeing an end to co-workers working as a team.

Pros

great working hours

Cons

Lack of support from hierarchy. So many policies & Procedures to follow.

Genuine caring staff.

I enjoyed working in the Health system. The people were just nice down to earth, dedicated to patients care. I worked at the Newcastle, I worked for three of the Hospitals in Newy. Nice clean work place. Good staff support programs. The bosses , as far as I experienced , were very approachable , and came across ss being very professional. I really enjoyed my time there

Not enjoyable

I feel its a place where promotion goes to not what you know but who you know. You don't feel respected in your role.Work is not shared evenly between all parties including travel and staying overnight.

job security

Job security . unable to provide an accurate review or full description as I am currently employed there and would not like to comment at this time. However, job security is one plus for working with nsw health as is any government role in general, particularly if full time.

very informative and collaborative Team work.

Worked with professional RNs and learned heaps from them. Teamwork and understanding is a vital factor. In a tough time all the nurses were working together and caring for the patients.

Pros

Knowledge sharing, supportive, informative and mutual understanding.

Cons

Long hours, sometime no break.
