Indeed Featured review

The most useful review selected by Indeed
Learned alot over the years and made some lifelong friendships. Getting a good manager is hard to come by. Leadership lacks and work place culture in some areas can be toxic.It's busy and tough at times.

casual ward work including brain injury spinal,stroke and general medicine

casual.rehabilitation work can be very heavy. old fashioned culture. Lots of older staff waiting to retire .politics security for staff on.premises outside going from carpark at night could be better,as quite dimly lit.


rosters on casual pool reasonable


Political, routinal, repetitive

Okay, here goes, they say honesty is the best policy.

#1-Work is productive, I feel motivated to do more than my share and I thrive under pressure. #2-What I learned-everyday, something new. #3-Management-I find some great, others a bit judgemental, unclear and confusing .

Good communication. Friendly atmosphere

Shift work is a balancing act with family commitments Every effort is made to be flexible where & when needed More opportunities for Enrolled Nurses would be an advantage as we all arrive at work for the same purpose. Excellent & productive patient outcomes

Lazy workers

The call bells will be buzzing like crazy but the Team Leaders will be sitting on their bums in front of computers and doing nothing . Unfair patient allocation . Most times they give sling lifters and medically difficult patients to Casuals or those doing a short shift . The regular workers tend to get away with easy patients . If you have 4 patients and 2 need help at the same time, no one will help.

IT Manager / Senior Technical Support

From the out set excellent job for use of skills growth of skills , real sense of direction and impact and benefits on the ground for the community it serves. beyond centralisation and change of job title completely muted role now unable to use skills or find any growth , personally disappointed with the outcomes for the community it served. looking to move on and find better opportunities.


use of skill greater personal growth than expected


Centralisation and the removal of rural postions in country

Fun and relaxed working environment great work life balance.

Typical day at work comprises of leasing with the Management team, Project Director and Clients in regards to project delivery and current status. I've learned that if there is no team work in all aspects of Project Delivery, Project tends to run late and more likely goes over budget and falls behind. Working with my co-workers is fun but at times challenging and reason being is lot of time they are under pressure and grossly understaffed they tend to take on lot more than they are required and tend not to update there progress on a regular basis. That was also the hardest part of my job, getting the right information about the status of there work because people are people and they tend to over exaggerate there progress just so they don't look bad in front of the management team and the client. Most enjoyable is getting to talk to people and recovering projects that are running behind, talking to the project leads and providing them with accurate schedule the one that they can rely upon. Once the project is on time and within the budget I find that rewarding that I contributed directly or indirectly for the successful completion of the project.


Work life ballance is great.


Government workers tend not to follow timelines and fall behind way to many times.
