In general I've heard very good things when working for SA Health. Unfortunately this does include the service desk. The service desk has a weak managment structure which has created a very negative working environment, which leads to a lack of care and an extremely high staff turnover.
Pros
The money is good
Cons
Management (on the service desk)

largely manual operational environment requiring huge amounts of process engineering and automation to modernise. Change resistance is significant considerable progress made across 6 years but much work still required.

SA Health consists of a poor structure of departments, ever-changing and ever-fluctuating and management are bullies and non-concerned with the welfare of their employees. They are supported fully by HR who condone their disgusting behaviour. An organisation divided into too many management styles and not compassionate enough to treat employees with dignity. The executive level don't care about anybody but themselves and their career trajectory, and the rest beg and kiss and wipe the executives rear ends with toilet paper. An organisation that condones bullying and thorough mismanagement of all departments is not deserving of respect.
Pros
nothing

Cliinical pharmacist role in the acute care setting of the public hospitals in SALHN (Repatriation General Hospital, Flinders Medical Centre, Noarlunga Public Hospital). Exposure to various wards including vascular, mental health and gastroenterology; encompassing activities of patient medication history taking, reviewing inpatient medication charts, and counselling and discharging patients on medications. Providing assistance in the solving of medication related problems arising on a day to day basis, utilising resources available on the SA Health Library Service (salus), such as AMH, MIMMS, and eTG complete; or SA Health intranet. Dispensing of inpatient, discharge, and outpatient medications in the dispensary units. Good and diverse work place culture, with outgoing and friendly colleagues. The hardest part of the job is the challenge of optimising patient care, but having said that when you provide this optimised patient care the feeling after every consultation with a patient is one that cannot be replaced, thus very enjoyable.

As an previous employer I found the sub culture of the Royal Adelaide Hospital difficult. They were not accepting of new ideas from fresh individuals. They tended to find change difficult acceptance harder. Once accepted the culture is very supportive. Change of staff is a constant. Becoming diverse in attitudes important. The employment is challenging. With high expectations to accuracy and high performance. The education of staff is excellent. With the expectation of attendance of inservices almost every shift. Focus on patient care and attending to patients is paramount and the documentation reflects the high standards of care. Working into theSA Heath can be difficult but it is very rewarding.
Pros
Salary, flexabitlity in hours
Cons
Settling int the culture can be challenging.

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.
Pros
Work life ballance is great.
Cons
Government workers tend not to follow timelines and fall behind way to many times.

I enjoyed my time working for SA Health, which allowed me to work autonomously and provided support when I required it. The workers were friendly and the environment was terrific. I provided counselling services to the community as required and travelled as far as Maree to provide mental health services. I worked independantly and was the only Quorn, hospital based counsellor. The most difficult part of the job was my separation from family in Adelaide. The most satisfying aspect was being able to be a part of an individual's psychological transformation.
Pros
ability to work autoonomously
Cons
seperation from family
