Pay management being under valued

Answered

Report answer

Middle to upped management close ranks they all tell each other confidential information if you whistle blow.
Most people who are employed are not knowledgeable or ever worked in any kind of care/support job. Those who go above and beyond don't get recognised. Liars and people not living their values seem to get on.
Dreadfully one sided. if your face fits you are fine.

It seems to me there is a problem from the senior managers leadership they appear to be setting an example of bullying and managing by intimidation and when people complain they close ranks and blame the employee!

Bullying employees, management/area manager/senior manager/H.R refused to address the problem how high do you have to go? Very poor management, long hours, back to back shifts.where I worked we had 22 members of staff start and leave in 2 years and some agency refused to return. When you have such a high turnover of staff alarm bells should ring but as long as you turn up, take the clients out and keep the paperwork looking ok then that's what counts!. Manager turns phone off and is constantly unavailable when shifts need covering. Manager had favourites and was often seen in work time having coffee in local Costa with staff! .clients allowed to become clinically obese, vital paperwork "dissapears" so staff were taking copies. A corrupt company seeking to line it's own pockets on the backs of vulnerable people, disposing of clients income by buying over priced / extortionate priced goods to keep their income below allowance for benefits is money laundering. Please.....if you need to work go to an agency, heed the reports on here .
