Indeed Featured review

It is a challenging and stressful environment. Management is okay but can speak up for people better and hardest part of the job is to deal with difficult people. Enjoyable is the nature of the job is really fullfilling, it is toward a purpose.

Pros

Gifts every now and then

Cons

Management can not relate to other people

Productive and fun workplace

I enjoyed working at the hospital, especially at HR department because i got to experience and explore a lot around the hospital environment. I loved working with more matured and experienced individual within each and every role I have encountered. The culture was out of this world, a very stress free environment to work in. I have also gained as much experience as possible under my educational career of HR Management under being an HR Clerk at the hospital.

Work is challenging with less manpower, a lot of work to do

Chris Hani Baragwanath Hospital is the third largest hospital in the world, has the highest patients turnover. A typical day at work as a doctor sees about 20 to 50 patients on average

Fun

Guys my view is tht even if the position of the job you want is not the don't reject people they are many jobs as a person can do. It's a good environment with certain people who treated other's good but they are other's who disrespect patients.

Pros

Free launch

Cons

Right hours

Strainous environment but has growth potential if given the opportunity

A very challenging day to day environment as I worked with different people from different backgrounds. I have learned curtomer care and being a team player to achieve the organisations goals.The management team was very much suportive as I have arquired administration skills and managerial skills under their supervision.The most difficult part of the job was working with people older than me and giving them instructions to follow which they were reluctant to follow because of the age different.

Pros

Pension Fund and Housing

Cons

non

Great learning facility

The management at the hospital lacks humility, a typical day at work is very strenuous, we are very short staffed and the work load is overwhelming. on the upside, there is much to learn, there are different conditions which broaden my skills and knowledge. Ive also been exposed to different wards around the hospital including, medical, paediatric surgical and padiatric haematology and oncology. the most enjoyable part of my job is seeing patients heal and being able to go home in good health.

Pros

great learning environment

Cons

short staffed

Lots of opportunities

Acquired skills and became a critical thinker. I was given an opportunity to be a team leader in both the trauma and medical admission wards. The culture at Bara is that its either you adapt to it or you wont cope. The hardest was working without resources. The most enjoyable part is that you miss the patients and the staff.

Pros

you learn a lot

Cons

no resources, shortage of staff

Being an advocate for patient care was fullfilling.

I had a mandate to do whatever that will benefit the Organisation. I was a Team player and enjoyed every aspect of the job. I enjoyed the flexibility.

Pros

Flexibility

Cons

Long hours

Lack of productive and growth

There was a lot of work with limited resources. i have learned to deliver solutions and services to users with limited resources. Completing all assigned calls without the help of management due to lack of their support. The hardest part of the job was to be expected to deliver without resources to complete the job and lack of rights to complete some of the daily duties due to specific stakeholder holding the rights for that specific task. The most enjoyable part of the job was to be a problem solver under any circumstances and working with limited supervision and satisfying all end users.

Pros

Learned to enjoy the job without expecting praises from management

Cons

Nepotism and favourism

Very educational with invaluable exposure to clinical work

It can be very fast paced but the variety of conditions makes it a wonderful place to work for persons who are eager to learn. The hours can be long at times but one is able to build lovely long-term friendships with a large variety of professionals.

it is fun workplace,patients comes first,learned that team work and communication reduces the work load,

Management is fair, consitance to everybody, no discrimination. Anybodoy can express their view on how to handle patients affairs, I enjoy giving health education to client and I feel happy and proud when the patient recovers, it is hard to accept if you did all you could only to find that the patient is not recovering

Pros

no

Cons
