Training Development good, over work not much support from Management
I would not recommend Creative Support to anyone. Some of the staff were good team to work with, line manager are often changed over or go for a long time without one. Managers not very supported of their staff, often undermined as a staff member. Work long hours and often have to cover for staff at very short notice when you made plans to be with your family. Although they could use bank staff sometimes they did not want to use bank staff, so you were expected to drop everything to cover for other staff absences, even though you are absolutely shattered which is not good for you and the service users. The service users and families appreciated the staff but the management show a lack of regard for the work and hours put in. Very stressful working for this Company. I would not recommend anyone working for them. I use to wonder why they often advertise for staff on a regular basis, but since working for them i begin to realise why, they have a large turn over of staff. Staff members who started working often leave not too long after starting with Creative Support. There are a lack of empathy when staff members lose family members and grieving, The Company and management show a lack of support and respect and empathy at your time of grief, instead expect you to return back to work in a very short time span or immediately after you had buried your loved ones. There are no support given on your return back to work, from either your manager, director or team leader. Their is a total lack of respect and support given. On the whole I would not let my worst enemy work for this company.
