Great job
Residential Support Worker (Current Employee) –  Chilsworthy14 January 2018
It's a great job supporting young people but the shifts a long and it's a hard work life balance. The work is interesting and there is plenty of opportunity to gain qualifications and progress your career.

Lack of support
Staff Nurse Band 5 (Former Employee) –  Milton Keynes, Buckinghamshire3 September 2017
A good place to work - good pay and benefits. However, generally left to run the ward with a lack of management support. More support required especially in the medium secure units.
Pros
Free meals
Cons
Long shifts that don't always end on time for the qualified staff.

Interesting Place to work
HR Administrator (Current Employee) –  South West31 July 2017
No day is ever the same here so it is good if you don't want a repetitive job.

Management are ok but seem to be too thinly spread to achieve what they need to or progress in the areas needed.

Staff are pretty good all want to help and are very friendly

Salary is really low compared to industry average and currently looking for other work due to low pay, it's a shame as I enjoy my role I just think that they would get better people (and more out of the ones they have) if they paid them properly.

Staff seem overworked they don't employ enough people and run team on bare minimum, I get the impression that due to this everything is rushed/last minute as people just don't have the time to contribute. Again if workloads were shared between more staff I think they could do some amazing things and they have great potential.
Pros
Friendly, good ethos
Cons
Pay is Low

Terrible place to work
Health Care Assistant (Former Employee) –  Abbey House Malvern30 June 2017
Where do I start when talking about this place. Set in the lovely surroundings of the Malvern hills, this is a truly beautiful place to work. Unfortunately, along with the free meals, that's the only possitives about working here. Since the new management, Abbey House has become a very unsafe, miserable and unorganized place to work. Dangerously short staffed on the ward especially at night where only 3 staff look after over 20 men. There have been plenty of incidents where staff have had to hide in the office and call the police due to not having enough staff to control the situation. During the day, management hide away in the offices or constantly go out for cigarette breaks leaving hardly no staff to run the ward. The only time you see them is when CQC are visiting and then they make out they're on the ward all the time. Staff rota's are changed daily and your shifts are all over the place, sometimes working a day shift and then a night shift the following day. You could come in after a day off and then be told your shift has changed and you're no longer in that day. The salary is one of the worst in this sector and you only tend to get on if you're related or a friend of the ward manager.
My advice to anyone thinking about working here, look elsewhere!
Pros
Free meals, surroundings
Cons
Everything else

Good work place
Support Worker (Current Employee) –  Preston, Lancashire8 February 2017
Not the worst company I have worked for but they have issues regarding payroll every single month. Some people don't get paid correctly, some people not at all. Always ammended a month later.

Some good benefits on offer once you have been there a while but not much chance of progression.

Dynamic and challenging workplace
Healthcare Assistant (Former Employee) –  Bristol, Bristol6 February 2017
Very rewarding work, great team to work with. Good level of pay. Social events outside work. Rewarding caring for those unable to care for themselves. Pushes you out of comfort zone and gives you lots of varied skills and responsibilities. If you are happy working nights and 12 hours shifts this is perfect for you. Get days off in the week to compensate.
Pros
Days off due to long shifts, food great, pay good
Cons
long shifts, night shifts, weekends

Good place to work
Care Assistant (part-time) (Former Employee) –  Northern Ireland11 January 2017
Good days and bad days as in any job. good days are more than bad days. Residents are what make the job so rewarding. if someone is sick we can always get help from somewhere else in the home. I have a lot of training to do my job. most of it is on the computer and I can do this from home. I used to work in the community and didn't always get my pay and was using my car to do a lot of miles. with this job I work 3 days one week and 4 days the next week, so I have time to myself.
Pros
come in do your job and go home
Cons
Sometimes young staff can be immature and talk too much

If your face fits
Team Leader (Current Employee) –  Kent10 January 2017
You can work a lot of hours over your contracted hours and not rewarded or supported when you tell senior staff that you are struggling or unhappy. They will get from you as much as they can.
Pros
some nice people
Cons
long hours/ long shifts/ supportive managers if you make thier life easier

They pay us loads of peanuts
Support Worker (Current Employee) –  Bournemouth, Dorset21 December 2016
Everything is alright except the payrate and how much profit-orientated is the company. Their 'priory' is the wealthy status, nor the service users neither staff.
Pros
Good rota, good support from my senior and care home manager, good training
Cons
Low salary per hour

Reception
Receptionist (Former Employee) –  Milton Keynes3 November 2016
The healthcare assistants and nurses seem generally commited to the job. Management and the heads of department not especially approachable.
Reception not covered sufficiently to allow staff help at busy times and sometimes a little too much multi tasking required.
Far too much gossip, personal matters disscussed and even reprimands delivered in front of others (staff and visitors) Unhealthy inter-colleague realationships. Some staff on light duties working in the reception area really not helpful or interested in doing a good job.
Met some good people while working here. No regular feedback or praise for a job well done.
Pros
Nothing really springs to mind
Cons
Undefined hours in the contract

Rubbish company do NOT bother
Support worker (Former Employee) –  Maidstone18 March 2016
I worked for this company for over a year. It was ok at first but after 2 managers left and a 3rd was hired you can kind of already guess what a rubbish company this is. As for salary getting abused, broken bones to staff abuse screamed at and attacked on a daily basis due to lack of training and service users placed in the wrong service everything else was ok. The staff team was strong as we had to be just the get through the dreadful back to back 14 hour shifts without a break. Some staff members doing a 24 hour shift or even over that with NO sleep or breaks. The management was rubbish and so was the duty managers support there was none. The team leaders were fab only because they could see as well how bad craegmoor runs their care homes. It's all about profit and money no matter how at risk they put other service users. Staff underpaid month by month extortionate amounts of money hundreds of pounds. This particular home in the south east should be closed before staff or service users get seriously hurt.
Pros
Free food if there was any.
Cons
Long hours no break no support broken bones lack of training
