Not a great home to work in

Indeed Featured review

The most useful review selected by Indeed
Bullying occurs quite frequently in the home I worked in. I would not recommend working in this home if LGBTQI. I found discrimination quite rife within the organisation and was pushed out to another home as they promoted the Service Manager

Deeply disappointing

I love the vision and values of this organisation but the reality in their regional Home Care Programs is deeply disappointing. Managers with limited formal education and zero understanding of clinical governance make this a stressful work environment for any registered health professional. Anybody voicing concerns about substandard care will be victimised and pushed out. It's like the Royal Commission never happened!

Pros

Huge potential, great TV ads.

Cons

Too great a risk to my AHPRA registration.

Poor management

Program Managers are not trained or have experience in home care. Uniting AgeWell once cared about clients and staff and now it’s about profit" . Ignores the fact that staff are stressed. Makes changes for changes sake and to justify their position. Once a great company but now just like all the others. Needs a clean out of managers .

Pros

Salary packaging

Cons

Incompetent management

Not a nice place

Management do not listen to your ideas and also expect to much from there workers. Very toxic place, a lot of the staff work against you and management do nothing to stop it. Very bad management is holding the place back

Pros

None

Cons

Bad management

Bullying culture prevalent. Terrible Program Managers and Human Resources lack intergrity, terrible workplace ethics.

I worked in Home Care Packages. Staff and Management in this area are terrible! Client Advisors act in the capacity of Case Management and several have been given these roles (not applied for the role or interviewed) where they were employed as PCW’s! No qualifications or sector experience. Terrible bullying culture/behaviour from these very people, aimed at staff that are more qualified and experienced because of their own inadequacies

Pros

None, whatsoever

Cons

Horrible staff, management and zero support from HR

Toxic

Toxic is the best word to describe it. Management do not listen nor support you. Your colleagues will undermine you, sometimes even bully you. No other company like it

Pros

Finishing time

Cons

The list is endless

Colaborative

Cons

Paperwork

I look forward coming to work.

I enjoy working here. Despite my clinical experience in hospital and education, working at Uniting Agewell still gives me the most rewarding experience and career advancement. Having had the opportunity to work in various roles of leadership, I developed my knowledge, skills and ability to resolve issues dynamically.

Residents programmes

Very calm and peaceful environment with few number of staff with very rear arguments. When any special function comes all work as a team. Very easy communication and coordination with other departments as everyone's aspiration is residents' happiness, health and satisfaction.

Absolute Nightmare Experience

I worked a few years ago at one of the small aged care centres. I had an awful time there. I got victimised by other staff members. The job resulted in discipline reaction being taken against me.In my many decades of my career I have never undergone that sort of treatment and had never jad any sort of action taken against me. I was absolutely appalled by the way that the HR dealt with the situation. For me it was quite shocking that such are some of the progressive social justice-oriented church treated employees that way. It was paricularly sad given that it the clients were such a fantastic group of people and some of the staff in the centre were such dedicated and generous people.

Pros

great clients

Cons

This organisation has a dark side to it.
