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

    Pros

    About the only reason to work for NEHTA is that it is the peak organisation for e-health in Australia.

    Pay is reasonable and in line with what the market offers.

    As public sector employer it offers the typical 38 hours per week

    Cons

    Highly incompetent senior management and promotions are not based on skills or knowledge but on making friends in the organisation.

    Work atmosphere is chaotic. No proper direction from senior management.

    Pros

    Great greenfield eHealth initiative...never boring at work despite the 'crazy pace'.
    Exposure to complex stakeholder group.

    Cons

    NEHTA requires better integration amongst the divisions to deliver a world class eHealth product.

  7.  

    Opportunities there if the time is right. They should be more careful in chosing managers, with appropriate skills.

    I worked at NEHTA

    Pros

    Pleasant place to work. I think, after some lessons learnt due to high attrition rate, they are finally putting in effort to develop & be stronger internally with better core infrastructure.

    Cons

    A lot of power hungry managers in it for themselves only. There are some genuinely good managers but not enough.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Carefully chose management with good people skills to help build more internal processes.

    eHealth environment - new environment, new challenges, exciting opportunities
    Freedom to explore and propose new ideas
    flexible organisation structure
    work life balance was good
    Intelligent people on board

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Listen to your employees and provide direction
    You have some fantastic ideas with your staff; they just need to be guided on implementing them;
    Train your staff and provide opportunities
