Managers are approachable. It tends to get busy from time to time but i learned a lot. Working in a hospital is new to me but i developed more about the processes and protocols and it helped me realised that i can excel in this field. I had fun working with nurses and other hospital staff and i enjoyed serving the patients and providing them with excellent customer service.
Pros
Free lunches
Cons
Long hours when it gets gusy

Working in Uniting aged care feels like home. Good management, good workmates, good residents. Being at work made me feel at ease and relaxed and not thinking of any problems.

Not helping. Because of some reasons I was terminated. They didn’t trust and listen to their employee and put false allegations on me. I was not with any work force or union So, I was helpless. It was the brutal decision. I begged many times and want official warning but no help or hearing. Very sad.

It has a great overall philosophy in helping the disadvantaged, but it has a very high turnover and people do not really enjoy their time there. Alot of management is command and control and decisions take ages to get made. There is a lot of micro management.
Pros
The fact that you are helping people
Cons
Inability to make decisions or have autonomy, micro managing culture.

Massive scale of infrastructure and huge staff slowed the capacity for innovation with senior level people interested in playing management games rather than innovation.
Pros
Capacity for independence of thought to discover new angles.
Cons
Bureaucracy to gain agreement to strategy.

As a Carer you "hit the ground running" on day shift. Afternoon shift is still busy but not so much as days. You need to be a very patient person with a heart of gold. This is not a job you do for money or just a job. Your heart has to be truly in it. I have learnt to have an open mind. Managements door is always open and approachable. Workplace culture is a family atmosphere. Hardest part of the job would be the managing aggressive Clients. Not being able to spend public holidays with your family. This industry is 24/7, 365 day a week. Most enjoyable part The people you are caring for and staff working with. You have a sense of achievement of helping someone with their day to day needs.
Pros
the people
Cons
low wage, no public holiday's

Staff regularly hung out to dry particularly by upper management. Their mission statement is definitely not put into practice where staff are concerned. Trying to drag ILU into 21st century with no or very little help for their managers. Managers under incredible strain & Area Managers are really only concerned about their own jobs & how they look to the Pitt Street office.
Cons
Incredibly long hours

Uniting is embedded in local communities across Australia. It offers good salary sacrifice arrangements and is in the forefront of taking a person centered approach to all of its care roles. Being such a large organisation there are advancement possibilities especially for those willing to be flexible around location.
Pros
A thoughtful and person centered employer
Cons
generally low salaries

Too many managers and too many making silly decisions No work-life balance Was responsible for working on critical business infrastructure but not trusted to work from home or other locations other than head office. No money gets spent on anything of importance. When childcare centres have to run their own independant fundraisers so they can buy stationary there is an issue.
