Bullying by Managers is acceptable to DPT. Do not work here
Admin (Former Employee) – Devon – 18 November 2018
I only wish that I had read these reviews before applying. I now know from experience that... Bullying is rife in DPT. Not from colleagues but from managers, and it appears to be accepted and not questioned by those higher up. I know this as I decided to speak up about the way I was treated, and I put in a complaint and was basically ignored/'fobbed off'
For a Mental health organisation the way they treat their own staff is absolutely appalling, and DPT do not adhere to Equal Opportunities legislation or stick to their claim of valuing staff with lived mental health experiences. If you have lived experience DPT only seek to make this worse.
The stress, pressure and expectations they put on even admin staff is unaçeptable, and if you try telling them that you are experiencing difficulties they are not willing to listen or take action, only interested in their ticking boxes.
Managers are not at all supportive, and do not value their staff. Flexible working and family friendly policies are not available to all, and are only available to you if your manager likes you. Staff turnover is extremely high, but they do not see this as an issue. To me the numbers speak for themselves, whilst I was there (almost a year) 4 staff started/left one job position! 14 staff in total since 2015!
If you're are considering this employer please rethink and reconsider, as there are plenty of employers out there who will value your contribution and hardwork without treating you so poorly.
Bullying. Unacceptable/unrealistic expectations
