    I have been working at Care UK full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Making a difference in elderly peoples lives. Working as a team. Some Unity amongst colleagues. The opportunities to do an Apprenticeship.

    Cons

    Shortage of staff. High staff overturn.

    Advice to Management

    Employ more valued staff with the right qualities. Provide more incentives for current staff. Increase Carers wages to reflect the work we do. Provide Long service awards for staff working less than 5 years e.g. for every year of service. Improve communication between Management and Carers. Often is the case that information is not passed down the chain of command.

    I worked at Care UK full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Lots of Trainings to make you prepared for job.

    Cons

    None supportive management, very bullies, too much staff turned over, continuously staff shortage and no time to take breaks that putting too mach pressure on care staff making them to leave the job. If you raise an issue with management they tell you if you are not happy you can leave.

    Advice to Management

    Management to show empathy, listen to care staff and put themselves in carers shoes to realise how is to work 12 hours shifts standing up and doing a lot of moving and handling especially when you are short of staff and not even able to take breaks.
