    Some of the staff care

    Cons

    Poor internal communications Senior management doesn't accept responsibility and are unable to communicate well with themselves. Very top heavy with members of staff who do not have care experience or are weak in their field of expertise. Play with people's livelihood without care or dignity.

    Advice to Management

    Communicate the good and the bad well and consistently.

    I worked at Carewatch Care Services full-time

    Pros

    There are no good reasons to work here

    Cons

    If you like a job where management treat carew orders like slaves. There is no work life balance and company will harass you to work longer hours constant phone calls on personal phones. Being unavailable or on annual leave the company will constantly harras you to work.

    Advice to Management

    Managers need training in emotional intelligence theories.Their treatment of employees depends who your friends are. Scott Christie should send someone into branches in Scotland to find out what really goes on.

    I worked at Carewatch Care Services full-time for more than 4 years

    Pros

    Ground level staff and service users are the only reason to stick around, other than being employed. Couple of pearls in a sea of scummy rocks

    Cons

    Wage and opportunity structure is a joke, there isn't one. Its a care company that shows NO care to their employees IT is an absolute joke Invoices are not paid, therefore services drop out very frequently Management is a disgrace, welfare and respect is non existent. The company is financially in dire straits, its a sinking ship

    Advice to Management

    People rarely leave bad companies, they leave bad managers. Starting from level 1 of management and investing in your staff would be a great start to picking this dyng company out of the dumps
