WA Department of Health Reviews
Reviews by WA Department of Health graduate employees
- Working within a government department there are extremely attractive salaries and flexible working arrangements available.
- Good workplace culture with flexibility in work arrangements and support (investment) in professional development for employees. Due to diversity of the workplace, there are a range of opportunities which means that there is always new challenges and skills to learn.
- Flexible Work Arrangements, Working for the public sector, Working on 'once in a lifetime project'- building a new children's hospital, supportive work environment with good awards and job security
- There are lots of different projects going on at the same time. There are lots of different moving parts that you can get involved in.
- The people and the opportunities.
- For the Graduate Program there will be variances across placements in work expectations, workload and level of challenge
- Organisation often works in 'silos', some people have worked here for a long time- lack motivation, low innovation, unwilling to change etc. Noticed a disconnect between what is learnt at universities and the how the company works- they are a bit behind at implementing change and being current with what is being taught/learnt- for example using new emerging evidence, innovating their ways of working, use of online tools, project management skills etc. Should pull on knowledge of new university graduates and connect them with experienced workers- however there is still a difficult environment to promote meaningful change.
- Very large organisation, which makes communication difficult across the different areas. The processes are also very bureaucratic.
- There are still elements of the traditional public sector environment. Change can be slow and not always embraced positively.
- The bureaucracy which can hamper initiatives designed to help people
