    I have been working at Ramsay Health Care part-time

    Pros

    My pay contract is very good and above what I would have offered myself. It is a mental health hospital so you feel like you are helping people in dire need.

    Cons

    There is next to no care for staff. A lot of neglect of staff wellbeing but there are no avenues to communicate that to upper management or HR. The large distance between upper management and day-to-day operations means that upper management is always keen to load more work/projects and cut staff benefits to save money. I go to work for my team, not for the business, and my team has a lot of stories of how staff are overlooked. KEY NOTE though: there is no "mistreatment" of staff, rather there is a lot of neglect of staff wellbeing

    Advice to Management

    Please please please create dedicated processes to monitor and action staff wellbeing, and create more robust policy around the procedure to care for staff wellbeing after crisis events instead of "do you wanna take an early lunch"

    Pros

    Friendly staff. Good training, great canteen.

    Cons

    To much undermined bullying and ganging up on people. Over working staff to the point of frustration and confusion. Too much is expected of one person to do. The psychological abuse I endured was unfair. I confronted them about bullying and they terminated my employment. They did not help me.

    Advice to Management

    Not bully your staff

    I have been working at Ramsay Health Care part-time

    Pros

    Friendly staffs and patients , brand new facility

    Cons

    The workload is way too high, 1 nurse to 6 patients ratio for a busy surgical ward where you have to check vital signs every half hourly for four hours. Always feel so burned out at the end of the shift.
