      Real mixed bag

      Pros

      You can work with a great team if you're lucky, and taking part in the activities can be really good. You get matched with different service users based on how well your personality and skill set will enable you to work with them and on the good days you do feel like you're making a genuine difference.

      Cons

      Your experience will depend entirely on the project you work at, and the rest of your team. I'm based in one project mainly but have done a few shifts in other places and if I was at these other places full time then I wouldn't still be working here. The company supports a wide range of people so the responsibilities you'll have can change massively from one project to another. Also I can't ignore that the pay is not competitive at all, and many colleagues have left because of this.

      Pros

      Some nice colleagues Service users are lovely

      Cons

      Underpaid every month, payroll took weeks to correct the issues Staff either have too many hours or not enough Upper management don't listen to you, refuse to provide adequate training and are generally appalling at their jobs Upper management will give you approximately 3 hours notice for meetings (even on your day off) if you're lucky The company expect your life to revolve around work. If you get a part time position, you will be working full time hours

      Amazing colleagues within the team

      Cons

      Not forward thinking - reluctant to embrace technology / home working Pay - low pay and having to fight for pay rises even when minimum wage increases Poor management - micromanagement, blame culture (managers are never at fault), don’t take on new idea or listen to staff who understand the role, no appreciation of work Poor planning - willing to spend money on agency temp workers and other unnecessary expenses, but not willing to invest in current staff No career progression - preference to hire graduates but not pay them a graduate wage or offer any career profession opportunities
