I have been working at Genesis Housing Association full-time (More than a year)
Great work-life balance. Ideal organization for women. Genesis regularly ranks in the top 50 employers for women. The company has emerged from a major re-structure and is finally able to focus on service improvement. Genesis knows where it is failing and it is successfully tackling these issues. The workplace culture is improving and I am happy with the opportunities to grow.
There are some dinosaurs around who don't want to change their attitudes. This leads to internal politics and power struggles. Senior leaders need to work with mid management better. Poor communication within teams...people don't respond to emails or keep pushing ad hoc work away. Sometimes the work environment can be very relaxed and you will meet some people here with a complete lack of drive. usually these people have been around for 12 years or more in the same position. The L&D team needs to up their game.
Advice to Management
Have a more robust system in place to deal with non performers. Weed out employees who don't have the right attitude and are still stuck in the last century.

- Declined OfferNegative ExperienceAverage Interview
I applied through a staffing agency. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Genesis Housing Association (London, England (UK)) in October 2013.
They have their own Genesis HR Resourcing and hire there own temps with in house
- recent question during infrastructure changes I asked what did they mean by assimilation to another Job role they proposed and they replied look at the Genesis management policy and I said from what I read your asking us to reapply for these Jobs for less than ten grand less annually and that we would go through another Job interview and have no guarantee of getting it and if we do not apply we would be refused redundancy ? they replied Yes Answer Question
- I asked why the hours would be extended for less salary to 39 to 42 hours and be on call on a rota system and would we be covered by insurance and would we be entilted to flexible working hours and where would get work life balance . Answer Question
- During the infrastructure change why would people be expected to apply for demoted Job title positions and for a large decreased in salary which is something like ten to thirteen thousand decrease ? and would you consider that reasonable ? especially considering the economic climate of today and inflation and such .. realising it more cost people more to work for you which would incurr hardships and deficits in the employers pockets and so employers are expected to be assimilated into their Job roles despite whether they agree with their Job roles and large decrease in salaries and if they refuse they fail getting there redundancy ? despite employers hardships and basically you are demanding that employers apply for the proposed Jobs with there hands up there backs with a large Junk of there salaries missing and that you would dismiss them under there current contract if they fail to be assimilated to a job position you proposed with a large decrease in salary ? and that this is not a case of re engagement of the current contract proposed with different terms and conditions and that they would still have to attend a interview and application before which is no guarantee anyway and failure to agree is instant dissmissal ?I asked when will get notice you terminate are current contract ?
