    Pros

    Being able to make a difference to vulnerable peoples lives
    co workers are wonderful people
    hot meals
    paid breaks

    Cons

    no overtime can work 60_70 hours a week without even a thank you let alone overtime.
    no sick pay even though working around vulnerable people so alot of staff turn up ill and spread infection.
    management is appalling home manager rarely knows what is actually going on, they tend to bully the staff below them and create an atmosphere of hierarchy making people tense rather than working as a team.
    high levels of staff leaving due to the above reasons.
    staff highly unsatisfied

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    home managers need more people skills not just do what suits them they need to take into account employees feelings rather than brushing under the rug. bullying in the workplace needs to stop. actually respond to gps and staff concerns rather than letting it build

    I worked at Bupa International full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    I worked at Bupa House for 3 years and it's definitely a place where I can say that they take good care of their staff. I built some fantastic relationships with some very bright people at all levels, and the people at the top are exceptionally talented yet approachable. Generally everyone enjoys working together there and there is a brilliant social scene, plus a number of pro bono initiatives and in-house clubs. There can be some tough hours but they understand the need for a work-life balance and in particular accommodate working mothers most admirably. The canteen and in-house gym aren't bad perks either. You will make hundreds of useful contacts working there and I've made some lifelong friends - there are so many great people.

    Cons

    Bupa effectively operates as a FTSE 100 company which means that there are some egos there, particularly at the "middle management" level. Most people there want to get along but because of a few very vociferous and very arrogant individuals there can be cases of exteme "silo-isation" where people who like a power trip deliberately don't co-operate; and teams are large which means that true talent can get lost, particularly if you are of an introverted disposition. They also love hiring in a bunch of consultants when they're missing a trick not letting people in the business lead projects.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Don't let people who know how to "talk the talk" pull the wool over your eyes! Just because someone likes the sound of their own voice and can speak confidently doesn't mean they actually know what they're talking about. This applies to the consultants who I don't believe add much value, and some internal egos too.
