No career progression

Indeed Featured review

The most useful review selected by Indeed
Pathology, Interesting place to work. As hardly anyone gets fired is not uncommon to find lazy carelees staff who have been working for ages and are very good at the "leave it to someone else" game. Challenging and busy place to work (not as much as private pathology) with no career progression unless some politics are in your favour.

Pros

Salary packaging, job security.

Cons

No career progression, slow management.

factory type mentality

there is zero satisfaction. it is an indoctrination factory.just ticking boxes. it isnt about healthcare.it isnt about preventive health care. it is all about managers making themselves look good flogging the underlings to get the workload done and they claim the success. there is no reward for effort.

Bad culture work place

There are no pros to working with health share if you like working long discretionary hours with no support from management or Human Resources I would recommend health share

Pros

Nice nursing staff

Cons

Lack of support by management
Was this review helpful?

Poor leadership and little organisation if any.

Very little regard given to well-being of employees. Management unwilling to hear about problems. Little support given by management and hardly any leadership. Too much rigmarole and procedure instead of sensibility.

Pros

Good pay. Salary packaging.
Was this review helpful?

Varied.

Not a job for everyone. Multicultural aspects. Need compassion and common sense. Difficult hours. Roster troubles. Team work is essential. Conditions are good.

Cons

Long hours. Parking difficulties.

Good environment to work within.

Working in Health care has its highs and lows. Depending where within Healthcare you work it can be very intense .Very rewarding and a feel good environment helping others (patients)

NSW Health is a great company to work for. I felt comfortable & supported & very accepted. I encourage anyone to apply to work for NSW Health. They have a bunch of great benefits that will fit any one person fully.

Wonderful place to work

NSW Health is a great place to work. I'm in an Admin role and the atmosphere is really good. Everyone is so lovely, lots of flexibility, Monday to Friday, really great wages with lots of benefits eg; optionial salary sacrifice for just about everything including mortgage or rent, great super, lots of opportunities to try different roles if you want to, 1 RDO/month, training flexibility with work hours and much more!:)

Pros

Great people, great wages, lots of flexibility with hours of work if needed.

Cons

Parking is very bad, there is a waiting list for staff parking, expensive.

Barely given shifts however when shifts are given the hours are good and the pay is great. Unreliable job however because you never know when they will give you shifts to work.

Safe working environment

It's been my pleasure to work with NSW Health for last five years, though the working load is heavy, support from management and co-workers makes it fun. I love my work...my second home.

Pros

Good salary, secured

Cons

Short of staff, patient nurse ratio in wards is not fair
Was this review helpful?

Bad job

The facility I am working in is very bad with staffing management, often short of staff. The facility has been cutting down on staffs to minimise its expenses to survive because of the low health sector funding from government, while the workload is physically heavy and damaging the health and well being of their staffs. The frontline staffs work like slaves everyday.

Pros

job security

Cons

heavy workloads
