    I have been working at Pulse (UK) part-time for more than 20 years

    Pros

    Having worked for Pulse myself for nearly 15 years, it is clear that there is encouragement to develop our own management internally, instead of employing managers from outside the business, which gives us a key USP against competitors. Career development is so important and the pathway is visible from day one. There are a number of benefits including good basic annual leave, opportunity to buy/sell holiday, online discounts...

    Cons

    Parking onsite at our office is a bit of a nightmare!

    Pros

    Having been part of the Pulse family for 10 years I am proud to work for such a great company. You have autonomy and trust to help grow the business, open communication and so much in terms of benefits from a simple thank you, through to an amazing Christmas party.

    Cons

    Very few, the nature of what we do = fast pace and often a busy environment, but if you work hard the pros certainly out weigh the cons

    Advice to Management

    Keep listening and keep evolving

    I have been working at Pulse (UK) full-time for more than 9 years

    Pros

    Good training, and yearly updates, good team of colleagues within the team based with the client.

    Cons

    Several offices have closed, each time you get moved to a new office, shifts and pay get messed up, only 1 pay rise in 10 years and that was last year. Don't get PD for training or get certificates. Due to all the changes you don't know who you are talking too, limited work as there have been no new clients for a few years, but several clients have left for new care providers. When you have training you tend to loose...

    Advice to Management

    Used to be one of the best companies to work for but has got worse over the years, personally only staying out of loyalty to client and their family (end of life), and I know of several over workers who feel the same unfortunately. It feels that there is little or no support for the workers and clients at the moment.

    Pulse have put in place a great career pathway, which means you are in control of what you want to achieve in your career and the timescale in which to achieve it.
