    I worked at Primary Health Care full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    There was real market potential in this company and it did offer reasonable rates of pay

    Cons

    Cutbacks have been severe in the last 12 months, but this company has always greatly under valued its staff. Staff have been treated poorly, especially during redundancies and certainly not what you would expect from an ASX100 listed company. This company simply does not invest in its staff.

    Advice to Management

    The former success of this company was down to its staff and the hours of dedication given to it. Unfortunately, PHC did not value its strongest asset.

    I worked at Primary Health Care full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    * good facilities
    * could be relaxing if your direct boss was inefficient

    Cons

    * could be very difficult and frustrating if your direct boss was overly demanding or not understanding in nature;
    * many people didn't get a pay rise for more than 4 or 5years;
    * management made good presentation but no action;
    * bullying;
    * CEO trying to promote good values and culture but some management didn't follow;
    * promotion with no pay rise in my case; and
    * politics.

    Advice to Management

    treat employees fairly and provide equal opportunity


  6. "I didn't love working for Primary"

    I worked at Primary Health Care part-time

    Pros

    Great work colleagues and manager in my team

    Cons

    Lack of company culture, no benefits whatsoever, lack of inclusiveness in the life of the company - I didn't feel like a part of it, impersonal top management, lack of recognition and appreciation of people's efforts from top management, even though I enjoyed my role I was often sitting at my desk asking myself what the heck am I doing here.

    Advice to Management

    It only takes a little effort to make employees feel appreciated, included and recognized for their commitment and hard work and that little effort can make a huge difference

    Pros

    Rotations of duties within the 3 months, full time job opportunities, free pizzas provided every last/first Friday of each month, professional colleagues to learn from and work with

    Cons

    Basic manual tasks, won't learn much hands-on skills,would feel tedious after a few days

    Advice to Management

    No really constructed advice to the management, the current management setup is efficient and stable, so keep it up

    Pros

    i have a job,, get paid on time,
    depending on which centre u get, mgmt might b good bad, n sometimes biased n politics n even sabotage

    Cons

    too much bureaucracy,, even positive suggestions n improvements will take too long to be implemented or may be shunned down only to be taken up later, n giving credit to head office,,, ur bosses might not understand anything dental,, n still interfere,, every centre is different n very dependable on the mood the practice manger sets,, sm practice managers r nt up to the mark,, primary tends to hire the cheapest option sometimes even with low experience in order to hv subservient staff, rather than valuing knowledge n qualification, pretends to b a stickler for rules,, but very happy to overlook them when its convenient for the mgmt. the mgmt is hardly transparent, sluggish n unfortunately disappointing at times.

    Advice to Management

    sorry to say,, don't wanna give u any more advice,, taking advantage, n running centres like your personal fiefdoms needs to be checked, biases against staff depending on whether u r eavesdropping to the manager or not,, valuing friendship instead of performance,. more transparency,, definitely
