Social Worker (Former Employee) – Hampshire – 7 November 2017
What a ruthless organisation. Words can not describe how they operate. Far to top heavy with no regard to employees careers or wellbeing. Never seen so many people leave an organisation. The pay may be good but there are NO other beniefts! Discrimination and bullying are an everyday featurein this place! AVOID!!!
Pay is okay
No flexibility, discrimination, bullying and stress
This was a great way for me to work from home with my first child. I also understood about book keeping and thought it was a great way for my child to become sociable and learn from any older children i minded. I really enjoyed this job but being self employed was difficult financially.
Poor salary/benefits unless you reach grade G or higher (these opportunities are like gold dust). Job opportunities and progression is given to staff that are liked and not necessarily good at their job.
Managers are poor and cannot manage people, they do not care about their staff.
There is no job security, every two years there are job cuts and most contracts are only offered on a fixed term basis until the next round of savings.
No work life balance, no flexi within certain departments and we have to use annual leave for interviews, hospital appointments etc.
Customer Service (Current Employee) – Winchester, Hampshire – 6 October 2017
Ok place to work as a first job, just leaving school/college. Would not recommend anyone to stay longer than a couple of years. Management is intense and you are monitored from the second you walk into the building.
Retired team leader Blue Badge (Former Employee) – Winchester, Hampshire – 20 September 2017
Now retired so largely irrelevant as the rate of change at HCC is so rapid. I enjoyed my time working in Winchester with the Blue Badge team Not so happy when team transferred to Hantsdirect in Fareham.
Volunteer at Manor Farm (Former Employee) – Botley – 16 September 2017
The people were all very friendly and welcoming, no matter who you are you'd fit in. Everyone helped everyone and all staff got along really well, even with volunteers who were only able to do one day a week.
Lack of management support and dreadful organisation
Social Worker (Former Employee) – Totton, Hampshire – 8 September 2017
HCC lack of support from managers and high caseloads with no work/balance. No planning in advance and keep changing the rules all the time when they need to justify. The worst organisation I have ever worked for!
Work/balance; support; training; high caseloads; health impact
prefer to remain silent about the treatment of staff and lack of support offered when required made to feel guilty when you have plans that mean you cannot staff the unit when it is short , expectation of work load verses hour in the day unrealistic , no support from management even when asked for directly . staffing ratio to low for the types of young people that ate resident at swanwick lodge so unable to do activities or keep young people entertained throughout the day .
good staff team
long hours expected to cover rota when really short staffed
Trabajadora Social con menores (Former Employee) – Totton, Southampton (Hampshire) – 28 July 2017
Facilidad de promoción en el puesto de trabajo. Compañerismo y ambiente de trabajo positivo. Elevado número de casos por trabajador que dificulta la elaboración del trabajo. Se excede el número de horas trabajadas por semana lo que implica una sobrecarga emocional y cansancio físico. En pocas ocasiones se sale a la hora fijada puesto que hay emergencias que cubrir y falta de personal.
La gasolina está incluida en salario
Nunca sabes cuándo vas a tener una emergencia o a qué hora regresarás a casa, El almuerzo suele ser delante del ordenador, Descontento entre el personal laboral
