    I worked at ArjoHuntleigh full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Nice offices and working environment. Many loyal staff who have worked there for years. Some good managers.

    Cons

    Lack of communication from head office and management. Too focussed on profit. Do not listen to managers and staff who have been in the business for years.

    Advice to Management

    Be more open, communicate more often, it stops the rumours. Cherish your loyal staff, try to hold onto the company's historically good reputation for service and products. It is not all about "the bottom line"

    Job satisfaction
    Great colleagues
    Good pay and hols

    Cons

    I worked in the rental sector and tbh it could be ran with alot more efficiency! So much potential! Wish the manager would just step in and tell it how it is.... but he just seems to hide behind a computer screen. So much pressure put on rental team. No equipment ready for dispatch. Expected to do it all ourselves. Feels as if we are treated like dogs bodies! Work incentives none what so ever.... I'm just glad im a self motivated worker, which I believe others are not due to this.

    Advice to Management

    Listen to your staff.
    Need leadership in decontamination process. It truely is the heartbeat of the company and its skipping a beat. More training, career development. Rentals seem to do everything cleaning, service and sales.... but no other department seems to help us. Communication is key. Patients come first not figures.

    Pros

    You are not micro managed - you are given objectives, and it is down to your own Managerial integrate to complete objectives.

    Cons

    Extremely target focused, almost to the point of failing to hit a target is not acceptable. Service always comes second to sales, even when they out perform.

    Advice to Management

    Remember to get the most out of employees, they need to want to come to work.

    I have been working at ArjoHuntleigh full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    The best thing about working for Arjo is the opportunity to work with the remaining people who have any integrity left.

    Cons

    The biggest challenge about Arjo is the destructive culture that breaks people's spirits. If you can survive here, you can survive anywhere.

    Advice to Management

    Management is overwhelmed and underpaid. The many problems at Arjo stem from a workforce who passes the buck, and HR is too weak to turn those people over.

    Pros

    Some really great people at the company and pretty good benefits.

    Cons

    The company is going through a restructure and we have lost many great people. There has not been much room to grow, especially from customer service. The company is under staffed and needs more people.

    Advice to Management

    Many talented people that should be growing. Losing some great people that could have grown. Need to raise morale. Need to also split work more fairly.
