    Pros

    Great people on shift. 2on 4 off shift pattern

    Poor and non supportive management who just see their talented and dedicated staff as a commodity. Don't support staff when faced with challenging and dangerous young people. Put staff at risk.

    Advice to Management

    You are losing staff daily and get you don't seem to care. Take your responsibility to protect staff seriously .

    I have been working at CareTech Holdings full-time for more than 10 years

    Pros

    Guaranteed work. Training is really good. One of the best.

    Cons

    Caretech is colour coded and is made of clicks. For one to be promoted you must belong to a click. This is a place where lazy people get promotion and hardworking ones victimised. The headoffice is full of incomptent staff. Support workers are never listened to and are used as objects. If onewa ts to suffer for the rest of life then work for caretech. There is a lot of nepotism and promoting people without qualifications for the job. It's a profit driven organisation ruthless when it comes to money.

    Advice to Management

    Do not treat people like objects. Respect and a thank you goes a long way than taking people for granted

    I worked at CareTech Holdings part-time for less than a year

    Pros

    They're a good company and the company is very well structured. They have values, where they offer their employees incentives and you get the best OFF market training. There's room for improvement where you can staircase- upscale to receive an NVQ.

    Cons

    Conflict resolution and emotional intelligence

    Advice to Management

    I think you would come to realize, not everybody works for the same reasons, therefore management can not marginalize employees due to the variation and differences, under which an employee should choose to work.
