    I worked at Care UK full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Pro-active in staff training for HCAs and to a degree for qualified staff. Qualified pay is reasonable.
    Better overall than many of its competitors.

    Cons

    Qualified staff have to wear pink, which for most male nurses is not really appropriate.
    Very poor at responding to complaints of harassment/bullying by Home Managers towards staff.

    I have been working at Care UK part-time

    Pros

    My manager of two years has been one of the best I've worked with. He has been supportive and accomodated new ideas. Most importantly he made staff feel important. I may have been lucky to have a great manager who has influenced me but I generallylike the management.

    Cons

    Some organisational practices can improve, although the company has started to improve practices. Recently, a few strict rules and procedures have been put in place that have made for some less convinientprocedures. However, nothig too alarming.
