    I like working for this company because of the lovely clients we visit
    in there own homes

    Cons

    The down size of working for this company that there is no communications with the
     staff who are out in the field.

    Advice to Management

    Please just learn to communicate with the staff who is working out in the field for this company. They just don't how to communicate with the staff out in the field, and not to give extras calls on at the last minute.

    Pros

    This company is a breath of fresh air compared to my previous work place. They do everything differently. The people come first, it's like working at Google! Its fun and everyone is so passionate about what they are doing. Management are "real people" they are transparent and come across as genuine. You feel like you are working with family, even though the company is huge, you still feel like you matter. They pay well, they treat you like an adult and they treat you with respect. Training is available and management are open to any suggestions of making any work improvements. There is no judgement here. Its a supportive environment and there is a lot of trust between team members etc. There is no task master hanging over you all day, you are trusted to just get on with your work however, there is always support there if you need it. I actually wake up in the morning and look forward to going to work! Never thought I'd say that but what a difference just some small differences can make to staff morale.

    Cons

    I genuinely can't think of any cons. If I did it would be petty

    Advice to Management

    Keep doing what you're doing!

    Pros

    Pay is reasonable.
    Front line staff and bottom level supervisors are mostly very good and a pleasure to work with.
    Enjoy the job itself.
    Lots of shifts available to take.

    Cons

    Very obvious divide between management and staff. Management do not care about staff. Lack of support for staff, you're very much on your own if something goes wrong. Blame culture.

    Understaffed and lack of resources consistently. Emphasis on meeting targets with an obvious disregard for patient care / experience.

    Harassment by rota team on a daily basis, several calls, voicemails and emails per day.

    Micromanagement by supervisors, very frustrating.

    Advice to Management

    Support staff and stand behind them when something goes wrong.

    Establish a culture of caring about the patient, not about the targets only.

    STAFFING!!
