Great place to show compassion and caring,
Very disappointed by management. I can not say anymore. They really care about the residents but when it comes down to the workers they mean nothing to them.

Could do better
I have been involved through many avenues such as work and personal life and on many occasions I believe that another company would or could do better. Because community nurses or nurses In general are given time frames to deal with clients it makes it almost impossible for all tasks to be completed and completed well.

Worst Management - Discriminatory, Harassment & Bullying
Wesley Mission Qld do not practice what they preach in terms of compassion, empathy and Integrity. Middle and Upper Management and Executive are unskilled and inexperienced in working with diversity and disability. Wesley Mission Qld discriminate and bully their staff, silencing wistleblowers, despite having a policy. As a 'Services and Community' org, they should be shut down.

Recent changes for the worse
Organisation enable managers to bully staff.
Aiming to reduce staff security, forcing staff to take 3 hour shifts and broken shifts without penalties.

Organisation actively trying to get rid of long term staff and replacing them with pool staff with 16 hours a fortnight contract.

HR not listening to staff's concerns and on the side of management.

Wesley should look at their mission statements and change them to suit with their current aims.
Pros
Lovely staff and residents
Cons
Poor cultures, poor management and poor ethos.

great place to work, poor management
lots of potential & scope of practice, big build,grateful residents and families.
senior management fail to support staff, unaware of staff needs on care floor. strong culture of bullying, blame, harassment; inconsistency and favoritism upon staff recruitment and retention.

The NGO promotes a Christian ethos. management promote buddhism- mindfulness and meditations are compulsory elements of training & work. practising christians have little or no voice in the workplace.

Overall lack of career development, big funding issues. inadequate support or mentorship.

not a supportive or friendly culture to work in
Pros
massive build, clients value staff
Cons
inflexible working hours, poorly managed, no career development

Unfortunately a bullying culture throughout management
Great facility with many dedicated staff who work extremely hard.
Management will not listen to any concerns regarding the workplace culture. Management practise intimidation of employees to coerce them to be quiet regarding many concerning workplace practices


Staff endeavour to improve things for clients without support from management
Pros
Great clients
Cons
Management are corrupt and dishonest

Ain
I worked in high care and palliative care. It was a very rewarding job even though it was hard and heavy work. Just showing up to work and being able to make even just one resident smile or make their days just a little easier was so rewarding,
Pros
Flexible around study
Cons
Heavy work

Great job, poor management
idealistic job: case management, therapeutic interventions, providing quality of life opportunities to clients, individualized care packages and end of life care in a wonderful custom-made environment. Loved the families, the clients, the potential...
senior management have no clue what happens on the care floor; the stresses and strains, under-staffing, staff working over-time & missing breaks to provide one-to-one care. sadly there is strong culture of bullying, blame, harassment; inconsistency and favoritism exist.

The NGO is primarily Christian. It promotes and practices Christian values and beliefs yet Buddhism reigns in this environment! mindfulness and meditation sessions are compulsory elements of your training & work. If you're a christian and don't agree then be prepared to be challenged or persecuted for standing by your faith.

lack of career development, no funding, no progression. inadequate support and mentorship.
Pros
massive building, staff are valued by clients
Cons
inflexible working hours, poorly managed, no career development

it was lovely working with the families
I would work for these families again given the chance
I would take my own activities and arts and crafts for the children to do on a daily basis. we did things like learn the alphabet, learnt how to spell & count. all the families were absolutely wonderful and it was very sad saying goodbye to them as you become part of the family.
