I worked at Bupa as a contractor (Less than a year)

Pros

Good atmosphere; they treat staff pretty well. There are some nice perks like fresh fruit and an onsite barista in the Brisbane office. Staff are friendly. People let you do your job.

Cons

Their offices span Australia and processes can be broken into different cities. HQ is in Melbourne, so it's mostly managed from there, but there this can lead to problems with communication between staff sometimes. This is exacerbated by Microsoft Lync, which allows people to secretly report overheard partial conversations to staff in other cities. You never know who is listening or what's been reported and so there's no opportunity to respond.

Advice to Management

Office culture between cities needs to be addressed so that potential misunderstandings can be fairly worked out between parties.

    Pros

    Thought it was a good company with a good name, free meal.

    Cons

    Leadership is up the wall! Don't know who's in charge most of the time. Any ideas put forward never get acted on or listened to. Never any sheets and when u ring the laundry for some they have an attitude problem! Sometimes have to wait for towels in the morning meaning people who are in bed have to wait to get washed! Don't care if its legal or not but staffing levels are always at the minimum making it impossible to actually take time and care for these people. Hardly any activities! Residents sitting for hours on end watching TV thier not even interested in. Staff have really low moral which doesn't make the home a happy one. And pay is crap but most probly always will be! Often get abuse from residents who have full capacity and are allowed to just speak to us that way. And you have to give all your holiday hours in at the beginning of the year or the office will allocate you them!! Ridiculous!

    Advice to Management

    Come and actually work on the floor with the people who have to do the hard graft and see how hard it is and what its actually like to work!

    I have been working at Bupa part-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Team work, friendly staff and free meals and uniform.

    Cons

    Never enough staff, pay is rubbish. try to claim benefits only to be told you can no longer claim. So on top of the rubbish pay they wont step up and give you the benefits they promise you. Not recognised for the hard work you put in, all the over time and no thank you.

    Advice to Management

    Cycle to work scheme has ended very upset by this yet still on website. Pay is just above min wage not good, never enough staff on shift and hard to give care needed because of this. Asked bupa to train me as a nurse as my home is desperate for one and has been for years, you said no even though i offered a contract for years after.
