Job Culture
Staff feedback is continually ignored, very low staff morale.
Staff are undervalued and pit against one another, there is high staff turnover. Staff who stay in their positions have learnt to bully anyone who seeks to address the issues. There is very little support for staff by Management, who foster this toxic work environment. The key focus is not the clients, staff at an individual level, or the team, but cost savings. Promotions are given to the least qualified staff in order to maintain the status quo.

Job Culture
Very stressed workers and many left due to management and lack of support
I worked for Uniting Disability and found that many workers were very stressed and that many new staff (including casuals) were not trained properly and were often left on their own to work with very complex clients. It was a very female dominated management ( at all levels) who could be very icy cold and pro-feminist, not the best place to work for males. Very hierarchical management style which is top down. I saw many good workers leave very broken and hurt and many, before they left, were doing extra unpaid hours and did not feel properly supported. The NDIS had made Uniting a place that is more about profit and money and there is a culture of change which never ends. Very high staff turnover among disability support consultants who have been given unrealistic amount of client loads. Very sad to see this happening to good workers. When Uniting changed their name from Uniting Care it is the care that went out the door for sure.
Pros
Other workers are often dedictaed, always paid on time and fairly
Cons
Constant change, high staff turnover, not being trained well, huge stress loads, males not given many chances to go up in managemet, cold work environment from management/leaders, very little christian emphasis
