Featured Review

Current Employee - Domestic Assistant

I have been working at Care UK part-time for less than a year

Pros

Really interesting workshops, where I gained a lot of information about the care sector.

Cons

Probably the overload of online coursework to do. I felt a bit pressured to get it done as soon as I could. I felt tired and stressed at times.

Advice to Management

From personal observation, the communication between staff and Management is at times non existant. Anything that can be done to improve this would help a great deal. I have to add that my Line... Manager has been very helpful and supportive towards myself and colleagues.

Current Employee - Customer Relationship Manager

I have been working at Barchester Healthcare full-time for more than a year

Pros

Great management and leadership team

Cons

None that I can think of.
