Pros

Most support services really good and provide help when necessary.

Cons

Very reactive company, told things not right in a home but do nothing until CQC arrive, then everything thrown at the home after sacking the manager. Huge bullying and micromanagement culture. Sadly nobody to report bullying to because it comes from the top.

Advice to Management

Listen to your staff, listen to your support services, act on information before CQC visit.

Huge bullying and micromanagement culture.

Pros

Good e-learning training package for staff

Cons

Bullying culture towards managers. Little support offered.

Advice to Management

GM’s very overworked and undervalued. Support from senior management almost non existent, very much depends on if your face fits. GM’s often working over 60 hours per week.

Bullying culture towards managers.
