Great work-life balance, poor progression
I worked at Alzheimer's Society for a little over a year and found it a great place to work. I worked on a regional level in Communications and was well connected to colleagues across the UK.
There were weekly catch-ups over the phone with my line manager with a monthly face to face. The salary was well paid for the level of role and the flexibility of work was incredibly generous.
The main issue was the lack of job progression - be it salary and/or the role itself. This affected the overall UK-wide team as it would be rare for someone at 'officer' level to stay for longer than 1-2 years max, with many moving on due to many of those in comms, public affairs and policy wanting to progress and hopping to other charities and organisations that had senior positions.
