understaffed, stresful, unsupported, run like a buisness
Staff Member (Former Employee) –  abbey house, Malvern, Worcestershire10 April 2018
A typical shift is very busy and chaotic. The floor staff try their best to achieve the highest quality of care but are given sub standard resources to achieve this. Run like a business, which focuses only on making profits and filling beds, regardless of risk and implications this could have on the ward dynamics and staff. Too many short cuts are taken to ensure profit over safety and wellbeing of those that work there. Low morale and lack of opportunity to develop
Pros
free meals
Cons
management, deceitful

Enjoyed my time there.
Support Worker (Current Employee) –  Maltby17 August 2018
I think it's stupid that you can't opt out of these things. What if I don't want to review all of my previous employers? What If I'm stressed out enough as it is trying to find new employment without taking up more of my damned timed with these stupid surveys!?
Pros
Fun
Cons
Demanding job.

Horrible place to work
Support Worker (Former Employee) –  Kent18 March 2018
Poorly run company. Management don't care if you need support. No-one works as a team. One person runs around doing everything whilst more senior staff members sit around drinking tea! A lot of nastiness for a rubbish wage.
Pros
Occasional trips out
Cons
Bad management, poor wages, long hours, no training

Great place to work
Admin (Current Employee) –  Southampton12 August 2015
I am currently employed at the Priory Southampton, I am saddened by particular reviews that contain inaccuracies, for starters no staff ever work 23.5 hour shifts and yes all staff get breaks! This is a great place to work, a family vibe with great employee benefits. Some of our staff have been here over 30 years which speaks for itself.
Each day is different and a typical shift for a clinical member of staff is 12.5 hours, 3 shifts each week, which means you have the other 4 days off which I believe is a good work life balance. There is good training and the staff really support each other. I love it here and would recommend this place to anyone
Pros
Great working atmosphere
Cons
long shifts

Poor Management
Recovery Support Worker (Former Employee) –  Kingston upon Hull19 February 2018
I suffered at this workplace having never worked in Mental Health before. I was given supervision hours that were meant to provide support however they were just cynical and judgmental and didn't want to adapt me to their working environment.
Management rather than helping and putting time and effort in decided to end my probationary period.

The workplace ethic was poor with minimum staff wanting residents to get better. Management cares more about the cost of things than the wellbeing of the residents.
The job its self was manageable around your daily life habits, and lunch and tea was provided which compensated for the poor pay.

The stress the management caused however wasn't worth it.
Pros
Free Food
Cons
Poorly Managed

Terrible place to work
Home Manager (Former Employee) –  Stoke-on-Trent, Staffordshire1 June 2018
I was previously warned that Managers within Priory group were treated as 'disposable ' by Senior Management but I did not listen.
They treat individuals like rubbish and only look after themselves. Their honesty and integrity is none existent.
Pros
Some good staff
Cons
Everything else

Not the company it used to be
Administrator (Current Employee) –  London, Greater London12 July 2018
A company ran by accountants, with little to no care for its workers and it wonders why there is such a huge staff loss. Sadly this company is ran by a leadership that is autocratic. Not the work place it used to be
Pros
Lovely co workers
Cons
Micro managed and no care about staff

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

Terrible place to work
Support Worker (Current Employee) –  Redcar and Cleveland, North Yorkshire5 April 2018
Zero support from management. Bullying tactics used. Safeguarding constantly being involved. Money means more than needs of residents and staff. Staff put on shift with no training. Most seniors lazy and hide in office all shift. Staff safety isn't deemed important. No personal alarms or radios yet staff are often made to stay in residents rooms with no other support.
Pros
Majority of support staff great.
Cons
Bad managent. Dangerous working environment

Arrogant and bullying management
Support Worker/Carer (Former Employee) –  Hertfordshire9 January 2018
Care home run like a zoo. Clients treated worse than captive animals and then managers wonder why behaviours are bad. No interaction with clients who get bored and isolated and behave like the pacing and depressed tigers seen in zoos.
Anyone who complains is bullied - including clients and their representives with threats of dismissa. Have to complete records etc to give positive outcomes to inspectors etc. So that company can maximise revenues and sell their self proclaimed excellence. Decided to leave as not happy to commit fraud
Pros
Trying to improved client outcomes
Cons
Bullying managers, poorly trained management, arrogant, blame culture

Lack of support

Cons
Long shifts that don't always end on time for the qualified staff.
