    Pros

    - Salary is reasonable - Subject matter is interesting - Centrally located

    Cons

    - No transparency from management - Bullying and hostile management style; - Micromanagement is rampant to the point of stalemate and bottlenecks in output - Staff are stressed, unhappy and burned out - current transition phase is sloppy, poorly rolled out; major change fatigue - no opportunity for professional development or promotion - culture of ‘passing the buck’ - sole focus on KPIs has lost sight of the purpose...

    Advice to Management

    Address the culture! Review the triage process. Train your management on how to apply the law appropriately and provide them with people management skills before placing them in the role.

    I worked at AHPRA full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Location and that’s really it. Close to Station.

    Cons

    Disgraceful management, unfair work given, constant abuse (not from the public) from people in senior areas), culture is really bad. I don’t know why they think discrimination and bullying is OK. Always new faces so they can’t keep people. Change is handled poorly. People treated like crap last year.

    Advice to Management

    The people around me were scared to speak up. Maybe hire people with management skills??

    I worked at AHPRA full-time

    Pros

    -CBD location - Friendly concierge

    Cons

    - A culture of rampant bullying; and people who see their colleagues get bullied are too scared to speak out for fear of personal ramifications (such as getting excluded/bullied themselves, having their contracts not renewed etc.) - Incompetent managers who offer lip service and are "yes" people to their managers. - Good people, once they are the targets of managers, have no chance of defending themselves and can...

    Advice to Management

    You all need to go. No other place will promote managers who are bullies, rude, awkward, dumb, lack people skills, lack social skills, lack basic human skills, but yet in AHPRA there's abundance of such type.

    Pros

    Benefits community, great staff, job satisfaction

    Cons

    Rife bullying and harassment - little effort to address it. Lack of transparency

    Advice to Management

    Value your staff, be honest, address those in management that bully their staff!!! Recognise what you have to legally provide to your staff - staff who have children under 5.

    Cons

    Low salary and no benefits Bureaucratic with endless layers of management that cannot make decisions High turnover, absenteeism means little gets done in consistent manner Management style and technology are outdated and ineffective Managers make decisions based on their own limited knowledge rather than relying on subject matter experts Over sell roles during interview, but once you start you realise you are incapable...

    Advice to Management

    Clarify the role of the boards as strategic NOT operational Train managers in current best practice Invest in new technologies Focus on your audience Get your head out of the sand and deal with reputational issues; the professions hate AHPRA, but see it as a necessary evil Start delivering value to your audience

    I worked at AHPRA full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Great place to get more exposure to areas I hadn't before. Some amazing people to work with. Got paid well.

    Cons

    Bullying culture, managers had favorites and new system in HR/Payroll not fitting the organisation well. Restructure I was offered a new role, but not given chance to do what I thought it could be or be autonomy, no areas to learn, didn't have anything to do and any advice to others was ignored.

    Advice to Management

    Don't overwork employees, shouldn't be an expected part of the culture.

    I worked at AHPRA full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Some good people in lower level staff.

    Cons

    Top management including CEO are incompetent. It hurts to see how many cases against practitioners have no action. If you are not part of the gang, expect bullying and harassment. ERP & Digital programs were failure despite waste of millions. Maybe it's time for a Royal Commission on AHPRA.

    Advice to Management

    Be honest to yourself and people of your country.
