    I have been working at Ramsay Health Care part-time for more than 10 years

    Pros

    Patients are lovely.

    Cons

    Sweeping staff cuts have meant the remaining staff are expected/required to work beyond reasonable load. Severe man-hour reductions in place.

    Advice to Management

    Review work loads and/or staff allocated to more reasonable levels.

    Negative Outlook
    No Opinion of CEO

    I worked at Ramsay Health Care full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    Great company to work for, excellent systems and training in place, great support and structures for staff that are proactive and willing to get off their backsides. Salary is good depending your skills/department working in.

    Cons

    Negative staff who just come in and constantly whinge and do the "Groundhog Day". Won't motivate themselves to do anything more than what they've done on day 1 whether employed 5, 10, 15 or 25 years. Hospital was very old and it's essential equipment/plant required overhaul especially Ops Theatre space.

    Advice to Management

    Don't be afraid to get out on the floor with staff on the frontline, there are alot of good loyal people out there and if you don't get in amongst them and see what they do and the effort they put in then you will lose them elsewhere. Continue to push work/life balance to improve worker satisfaction & longevity. Feed the busy, hard-working Maintenance Dept.
