    A household name, felt very welcomed to the site. Plenty of short workshops and training and no micro management.

    I worked at Mission Australia full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    Very supportive team, everyone brought something different to the team and would welcome new team members and placement students

    Cons

    Limited scope to improve outcomes as we were working with medicated clients who couldn't think clearly Sometimes clients would bring you down or overwhelm you as quite often they don't have friends and in this job you have to be their support but also maintain boundaries.
