    I have been working at British Heart Foundation full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    I have had great career progression at the British Heart Foundation, having progressed twice since joining 18 months ago. Since starting, I've been empowered and supported to take my career where I want it to go. Where the charity has shortfalls in maturity, the senior management team have a great vision for the organisation, and always look to the experience of its employees to grow. Positive: - Flexible... working hours (work from home once per week) - Great cause which the charity keeps you involved - Experience with working with the retail team and volunteers - Lots of training; career progression supported by management - Strong support and focus on the well being of employees (physical or mental)

    Cons

    - Slow decision making - Immaturity in some areas (which are being worked on) - HR still establishing career paths to fully support development

    Advice to Management

    Continue to mature the organisation in areas it needs. HR to push career paths across directorates to support those who aren't sure on where to take their career.

    I worked at British Heart Foundation full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    nice people to work with. all similar ages.

    Cons

    senior management really bad. No consequences for employers who do not achieve basic requirements in their role and seniors brush it under the carpet. seniors struggle to handle pressure and there are clear favourites in the company. if you are a favourite, you will get ahead. if not, expect to stay in the same position even if you are good at your job. no clear structure and easy to get away with not doing job... properly. no

    Advice to Management

    top management should be keeping their eyes on how teams are managed by their directors.

    I worked at British Heart Foundation for less than a year

    Pros

    Very supportive line management and great induction into the charity. Lots of amazing work is being done, even if it's not communicated effectively across the organisation

    Cons

    Extremely siloed working, teams don't communicate well, money is wasted on agencies to perform jobs that should just be done in house and lots of denial of responsibility and frozen middle syndrome

    Advice to Management

    It's time to clean up shop of all the useless people who prevent the organisation from innovating, even if it means at the director level!
