Very friendly office
I enjoyed working at Golding homes, I always felt comfortable and supported. I made some real friends whilst working at the company. I don't feel as though the salary truly reflected the work put in, and I tried to apply for several internal jobs whilst working for company however wasn't given the opportunity to progress. Other than this, the company was always friendly and positive.

Average to work for
Poor heads of departments, who are not in touch with their team. Could learn from the courses and develop themselves to improve.Historical poor culture, which is promoting micro management

Amazing place to work
Golding Homes is by far the best place I’ve ever worked. The people are amazing, friendly and helpful and there’s a real sense of team work and collaboration. I’m finally able to have a better work life, home life balance due to the flexible ways of working. The benefits are extremely generous including give back days to volunteer with a charity of your choice, wellbeing fund and decent annual leave entitlement. I’d recommend working at Golding to anyone that’s keen to develop and grow with an organisation that’s committed to supporting their customers and giving something back to the local community. I love working here and the people I work with.

Pros: Ambitious for growth, nice office, gym, attempts to be modern, likes to show good first impressions, flexible working, charitable, locally orientated in wanting to give back to the community, good Chief Exec who will get his hands dirty and communicates with all staff, he meets with every new colleague irrespective of who they are for a coffee/tea. Table Tennis, Library, car parking, introductions with other employees across business when start, good interview and start up process for new starters. Cons: Staff feedback questionnaires used against staff as Judge and Jury by HR, some HR staff are biased for a few employees who give them information, some seriously need impartiality training, instances of false allegations and using informal ways to make out you are guilty, not surprised by comments seen below and on other sites, was doubting myself about this. Bullying tactics also by HR and some managers so that they make you out to be the problem (don’t realise there can be agendas such as not liking a person, wanting a person’s job that they did not get, resentment, getting away with not adapting to change). Way too much reliance on subjective assessment with no substance and not measurable, very much if you’re liked or agenda based e.g. higher management will have wanted you but someone below will use it to fail you due to their laziness and resentment as well as by a few in their team. Can create failures for new staff e.g. very delayed objectives, long unnecessary meetings, disjointed across teams, blame game during restructures, turning employees against each other, reactive approach when goalposts are moved. Resentment against successful employees not if brill at Golding (come with a good reputation), some long serving staff dislike these guys due to long serving staff principles e.g. making out they think they are better than us, only speak to you once they’ve seen you have something go wrong, petty points scoring, why should they have got the job when internal guy be rewarded with loyalty of service, showing them up in that they were seen as the best. Chief Exec has tried to tackle this via One Golding promotion which is very sensible. Saw one instance where an employee who did lots of promotions and positivity marketing being described as them thinking they’re better than other persons who were not the same protective characteristic ((thinks he/she is better than, (cant repeat this here)). Way too much marketing as to cover up some problems, not willing to deal with day to day matters and instead just growth. Finally HR train managers to wear down employees, tactic is to get persons to do long hours due to high workload/covering if team member had left in the interim, manager will then have long meetings in which they know employee isn’t in a fit state to contribute and focus on petty things, occurs when some managers know employee is so busy that can then criticise why something not complete or penalise behaviour e.g. saw a few staff after taking lots of calls after looking stressed then getting picked on for why things weren’t done, opportunity to subject employee subjective criticism. Making out a competent employee isn’t? Feedback Chief Exec is a good man, however he really needs to see what goes on in reality and identify when specific persons have their own agendas. Impossible to be everywhere but comes a point where there are some that behind his back comment he is easy to deceive. Not completely possible to achieve cooperation between teams and One Golding but step in the right direction. HR tactics need to be rooted out fast unless it has been agreed that willing to take risk with this to save time and resource in not wishing to investigate properly as well as making it want there to be conflicts between employees. United workforce with outputs but not achievable via divide and rule. Make sure you keep proper records, times and dates so that in the event something may occur, you’d be the one who would look credible, reliable and sincere.

worst company I've ever worked for
Awful company to work for The director's are all just out for themselves. They are a bunch of agist bullies who just want young totty working for them with no experience. my manager made me feel under valued, useles, thick and incapable of performing my duties. I got to the point that i dreaded going to work. if you have any self respect do yourself a favour and don't work there
