    Pros

    The role is safe and secure with good salary and benefits. Networking is great and it opens up future opportunities in a very large industry that is only growing bigger and bigger.

    There is a lot of bureaucracy and red tape, Queensland Health moves like a glacier - it does change and make headway but altering it's direction is near on impossible.

    More incentives for employee training would be great.

    Former Employee - Project Officer in Brisbane (Australia)

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

    Pros

    While working on clinical IT projects I had some amazing mentors that taught me a lot about project management and how to deliver a successful project. I was also given fantastic training opportunities that have assisted in furthering my career.
    It is also fulfilling to know that you have played a role in improving how health care is delivered to the Queensland community.

    Cons

    Being a government organisation there is a lot of unnecessary tape to work through which can be frustrating when you want to just get on with the job that needs to be done.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Listen to your teams they will give you insight into what may be holding your project back from success.

    Pros

    Flexibility of working hours. Investment in healthcare is at an all time high.

    Cons

    Salary is average. The whole environment is steeped in political cr*p, and efforts to implement ICT systems are fraught with resistance.

    Respect staff more before they all leave for the private sector.

    Pros

    Work life balance provided by flex time was great. They also provided extra leave for parents and are very family orientated.

    Cons

    Being government there is a lot of hoops to jump through to get the simplest of tasks done. Not able to accept any benefits from vendors including free training.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Upper management need to accept the onions of more technical staff when appropriate and not make decisions based solely on lowest cost.
