Fast paced and exciting team environment but poor management

Indeed Featured review

The most useful review selected by Indeed
High clinical acuity with great salary packaging benefits but poor work life balance and management don't care. They work you into the ground until you break.No parking available on site and cost a small fortune. Management encourages staff to use PT to get to work but will penalise you if the system fails and your late beyond your control.Constant changing policies to protect its behind. Roster put out late. Constant need for overtime and management argues that it owes you those hours.

Amazing Managers and extremely friendly and helpful Co-workers

Easily the best managers I've ever had, who wholeheartedly cared about my overall wellbeing, and work/life balance. They were friendly, open and happy to accommodate my scheduling needs to the best and their abilities. Additionally, I found my co-workers to be extremely knowledgable, helpful, friendly and welcoming. The facilities are clean and up to date, with many modern advancements and funding. Overall 10/10, work here if you can.


Managers, co-workers, facilities, services.


Shift work, which is normal for healthcare.

Steer Clear

This hospital has a disgusting culture of severe bullying across all wards. There is no room to advance within your career. Many people I know who work there, do not stay on very long, and seek better alternatives elsewhere. But hey, great salary packaging options!

Educational, energetic and encouraging place

Busy with different medical and surgical patients with various care needs I have learned Australian nursing standards, leadership Always supportive, empathetic and has cultural affinity unity in diversity abides in our team Its hard to answer patients and their families when surgeries are postponed for more than 2-3 times/days. The enjoyable part is the challenge in caring for different patients with same surgery, but different outcomes, complications and recovery process.


ward celebration on occasions like-birthdays, weddings, baby showers and supporting each other in situations of sadness


irregular bed capacity fluctuation

Interesting and varied

At that time, starting 1989 the hospital was expanding and encouraging a new approach to achieving best patient outcomes. This made the Royal Melbourne Hospital a busy and dynamic workplace.


Great morning and afternoon teas, alas were withdrawn by 1997.


Constant changes, especially protocols difficult to keep up with.
