Very rushed and stressful environment. Poor work culture, where you are made to feel guilty if you call in sick or can't cover a shift. Management are very happy to leave the floor short staffed and have staff miss breaks. No appreciation given to staffA lot of staff hired with no respect for residents or other team members, with no support given to staff feel they made need extra training.Treated more like business, rather than a home where over a hundred people live.
Pros
Lovely Residents and staff
Cons
High pressure, stressful, constantly short staffed

When working as an AIN, the job is intensive. The residents are lovely, but the management is terrible. It is like a dictatorship. No staff recognition, and fellow AINs running things. Not enough RNs and the good ones are few and far between. Some AINs are no concerned with patient welfare. I would not send my relatives here.
Cons
Management; short staffed

Management are all bullies, Had to fight for shifts and was scared of supervisors and management. Money driven, management get bonuses to stay under budget each quarter therefore they cut corners everywhere to the residents demise. Residents suffer the consequences. They turn staff against each other and have absolutely NO staff appreciation! Overworked Underpaid and all you do is run your butt off to try and help the residents and families. WOULD NEVER WORK THERE AGAIN! Had to quit as I had a nervous breakdown due to the stressful aggressive work environment!

The workload and stress put on AIN's is beyond what we are paid for, the management is the worst and we are not treated well in my eyes. The workplace between staff is a great environment and we enjoy coming to work to see each other, aged care is a challenging job but working for opal was the worst experience I've ever had.

I love my job but want to get back into the administration work. The company provides ongoing education on a regular basis and there are general staff meetings all the time giving staff the opportunity to give positive or negative feedback so as to help improve the quality of service we give.

Worst work culture I have ever had, fueled with bullying from management. Constantly new rules to catch staff out. Breaks are timed to the second. no flexibility with shifts. punished for taking sick leave.

Opal Aged Care Orange has a Facility Manager who does not care who she employees as long as the work gets done. You can't complain about being bullied or if you see a resident gets mistreated because they don't look into complaints if it against their friends and then they will complain about you and get you in trouble as pay back, I think it looks bad when employees get paid from recommending someone to work there.
Pros
None
Cons
Most staff from management down don't care about how they treat Residents

No respect for staffs. Harsh communication of management. Always short of staffs. Policy is not to replace for sick calls. Not providing enough equipments.even no trolleys for room service. If staffs want to talk about any issues, they are given warnings. Too much profit oriented . Don't have any feelings for staffs. Residents are also compromising because of less staffs and not enough equipments.
Pros
Nothing
Cons
Not good for long term work.

A likeable working environment that needs a lot of improvement. I have mastered the skill of providing holistic care to residents. The management has the residents at heart. The workplace culture is really good, a lot of teamwork and cooperation. The hardest part of the job is when a resident passes away. The most enjoyable part is when residents smile and show appreciation for what you do for them.
Pros
Team spirit
Cons
Staffing ratios
