Love working with the residents and team members here, we all help each other wherever we can to take the stress of another. It’s a pity the staff allocation ratio to residents is so small

Pros

Lovely team members

Cons

Lack of Staff

Challenging and difficult place to work.

If you're not a clinical staff member (nurse, doctor, allied health) you are treated bad.When taking on a management role, you are given little to no training or assistance in that role. Expected to learn on your own and magically know what to do.Decisions made by higher-ups make no sense and do not benefit team or hospital.As a single, child-free male employee, I was given mainly late shifts or 'floater' shifts. No work-life balance.Toxic work colleagues. Take their frustration and anger out on you if they're having a bad day, or go behind your back to bad mouth you.Lack of communication - receiving updates at either a moments notice or not at all.

Pros

Close to home

Cons

Difficulty in finding parking, no career advancement, lack of respect, I could go on.

Not a Company to Work For

St Vincent & Mater Health, mainly being Mater Hospital in Nth Sydney is not a company to work for as there is alot of bullying and harassment from management as well as no support. Management also have their favourite list and if you are not on it you had no chance of advancing your career. The team work was not good and the patient load was very difficult and poor. Once again I would not recommend this as a place to work.

good team work management supportive of workers

People are mainly polite and thoughtful of newcomers. strong evidence based learning experience being a tertiary hospital. Collaborative medical, nurses, allied health team and ward support. You can expect appreciation and compassion from your co workers in this fast paced work place.

Think again

At times the culture can be toxic. Blame and favouritism make an unpleasant work life. Managers can be inexperienced and lack qualifications to lead a team

Wonderful staff & great diversity in educational and professional development opportunities

It has been a pleasure working with staff across numerous disciplines at this hospital - everyone I have encountered is extremely friendly, supportive and helpful. There is also great diversity in available educational opportunities, and professional development is highly encouraged by managers and the Education Department

Very happy working for this organisation

I have enjoyed working at St Vincent's Hospital. They sponsored my Regional Permanent Resident visa when I arrived in Australia and have been very good in offering me a full time position. I have been well supported. They even paid for me to upskill and maintain my Medication Endorsement.
