Featured Review

Former Employee - Senior Care Assistant

I worked at Sunrise Senior Living full-time for more than a year

Pros

- training - career development - residents

Cons

- gossiping - work load could be very heavy depending on days

Current Employee - Customer Relationship Manager

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

Pros

They genuinely support staff to reach their potential, they are always looking to develop people to the next step. They are considerate of anyone who is struggling in work or their personal life and... try to help. Throughout the Covid pandemic they have set up all sorts of staff support mechanisms, have paid for anyone isolating or shielding and they really care. I have seen MD's visibly upset when bad news has reached them. There is not another care company like this.

Cons

They have very high standards and will give everyone the support to reach these, but there is no chance at slacking off.

Advice to Management

Stay at it, keep listening and making the decisions with the right intentions as you have done.
