Healthcare Support Worker (Current Employee) –  Thorrington, EssexFebruary 21, 2018
Every day would differ to the last, the care you gave and how you gave it depended fully on who was leading the shift. Other than that it was a fantastic place, however it was an underpaying job to say the least.
Pros
Free lunch, Training
Cons
Long shifts, Inconsistent, Irritable

Comitted to quality care
Manager (Current Employee) –  YorkshireSeptember 23, 2017
A great place to work & learn. Some settings are more challenging than others as is the norm within Health & Social Care.

Company is committed to seeing teams develop and gives regular praise and recognition.

Senior management is receiptive to change and adapts when appropriate.

Some work to be done on culture, however things continue to improve since the new CeO started in 2016.
Pros
Pro-active colleague who care and are willing to learn
Cons
Staff who resist personal growth & development

Bullying culture poor senior management team.
Manager (Former Employee) –  MidlandsSeptember 19, 2017
The management are only interested in financial gain and cut costs and admit inappropriate service users. The induction and training is poor and there is a blame culture when things go wrong. The Operational Directors create clicks and treat some staff differently.
Pros
Free meals
Cons
Poor leadership and management.

Uncaring company to work for.
Support Worker (Former Employee) –  Hexham, NorthumberlandAugust 1, 2017
I can't stress enough what an uncaring company this is. It doesn't care about the service users or the staff members, despite what they make it out to be. They are unsupportive and run on dangerous levels of staff in a highly volatile environment. Should staff have problems etc the management and hr will all stick together and bully.
Pros
Provision of meals (poor quality)
Cons
An overall uncaring and unsupportive company. Poor pay rates in comparison to other companys.

A really caring company
Support Worker (Current Employee) –  MidlandMay 18, 2017
Challenging part of care to work in but very rewarding. Did not previously work with people who have Autsim so this has been eye opening. I really enjoy coming to work everyday, and while it does have tough days I work in a brilliant team who all support each other.

The care provided to both service users and staff is excellent. Provided all relevant training to stay safe.

Have developed in my role completing my NVQ 2 and currently working towards NVQ 3.
Pros
Meals, training, manager, team
Cons
Pension, long hours

Poor Company to work for
Staff Member (Former Employee) –  Dundee CityMay 3, 2017
Danshell do not care about their employees or residents and are only concerned with profits. Management are poor and like to paint the grass is greener.

Nurses are overworked and understaffed, carers are run ragged at times expecting to do 3 different jobs at times.

Expected to work with very little staff at times especially at the weekend and no support from manager other than to get on with it!!
Pros
Free meals (when they were cooked properly or you go a chance to eat them!!) Good staff team
Cons
Long hours, no breaks, no support of manager or their backing

poor management, can accuse you of anything but great staff team
Care Assistant (Former Employee) –  North EastApril 21, 2017
Poor management promise residents all sorts then dont follow through leaving staff to deal with the fallout. Can accuse you of anything with no proof and get rid of you for it within 3 months so you pay back full induction. Understaffed and far too many agency brought in who arent trained putting full time staff in difficult positions when it came to restraints and sometimes went from 8am until half 2 without dinner or a break due to staffing. Only upside is the rest of the staff were amazing, really banded together as a team and put management to shame!
Pros
meals provided, brilliant team
Cons
bad management, hours without a break, terminated for false accusations

Blame culture and unprofessional managenent
Support Worker (Former Employee) –  DundeeApril 20, 2017
Good staff team who work well as a team, was once a good place to work but went very down hill. After going threw a lot of new managers in short periods of time, most of which acted quite unprofessional and offered little to no support for staff in a challenging environment. Lots of incidents with little recording and debriefing. Long serving staff seem to get pushed out, and victimised whilst employing lots of new staff with little to no experience. High staff turnover.
Pros
Staff members
Cons
Long hours, unsupportive management, blaim culture

Dedicated staff let down by poor management
Health Care Assistant (Current Employee) –  County durhamMarch 27, 2017
Minimum investment in staff, organisation, infrastructure. More concerned with ticking boxes than providing the care they get paid to deliver.
Initial training is rushed and pitifully inadequate for the job.
Ongoing training is poorly structured and badly managed.
Staff turnover is very high due to low staff morale.
Pros
Meals provided
Cons
Poor management and organisation.

Better companies to work for
Support Worker/Carer (Former Employee) –  Dundee, AngusJanuary 13, 2017
Very much a blame culture when mistakes or incidents happen rather than taking the time to properly train staff and learn from what has happened. Staff team all lovely but are ground down by a management team who does not listen at all. Very high turnover of staff. They will make large deductions from your salary if you leave within 6 months.
Pros
Meals included
Cons
Serious lack of quality training and a management team who cannot lead

Mis-managed to point of being dangerous
Support Worker (Former Employee) –  DundeeNovember 11, 2016
It was once a good workplace but has, in recent years, declined to low standards for the support workers reflected in its typically high turnover of staff. This has hopefully changed for the better since I left.
Pros
free meals
Cons
lack of organisation, training & staff

clients great , staff easy to get on with
Senior Care Assistant (Former Employee) –  Port GlasgowFebruary 11, 2014
The place like all work places has its good points and its bad , mostly good A Typical day at work was helping the clients with personal hygiene, grooming medication and giving them their food .Management most of the time were helpful , co-workers were easy to get on with, friendly, we all worked as a team, The paper work it was constantly getting changed so what you were doing one moment in report wise could be totally different the next day , The most enjoyable part of the job was the interaction with the clients.
Pros
clients
Cons
long hours, you had to stay on the premisess during your breaks unless given permission by management, which meant you really did not get a brake from the place
