What do employees say about the location of the Barchester Healthcare office?

Pros

Some good colleagues. Residents. Close to home so convenient.

Management constantly set you up to fail. Regional directors are out of touch with reality. No equal pay for all staff. Limited understanding by majority of staff.

Appreciate the staff. Pay all staff equally. Get your hands dirty rather than walk around with unrealistic idealisation in heels and fancy clothes.

Close to home so convenient.
