    I worked at Genesis Housing Association full-time (more than a year)

    Pros

    Very friendly and social place to work. Not too stressful. Good benefits. Good proportion of female and BME staff.

    Cons

    Very high staff turnover, poor management and leadership. Staff are very often left to themselves as no clear direction is provided. Limited training. More confidence is given to external consultancies rather than internal staff which is demoralising and as a result many leave after a short period of time.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Invest more in training your staff; provide career progression and listen more to your staff.

    Leadership don't trust employees and are completely out of touch. They will lead the organisation into the ground.

    I have been working at Genesis Housing Association full-time (more than 10 years)

    Pros

    In House training and knowledge

    Cons

    Infrastructure changes which affect employers salaries to a considerable decrease in wages.
    Expect to be Surprised when working for this company and complaints from other partners who say they do not pay on time
    Corporate bullying staff in order to make unrealistic deadlines and extended work hours including weekends and evenings which compromise the work,life,balance of a employer on pittance wages and they avoid operating in a legal compliance way and are profit driven company who exceed a property portfolio of Billions and have groups like investors in people investing in them and have shareholders and they emerged by subsidary groups like pathmeads housing and Sunderland housing and Paddington church housing etc they expect there staff to take a Job on decreased wage cuts of ten thousand plus in a annual salary and refuse redundancy unless they fail the interview and one guy was coached by a forum rep how to fail his interview in order to get his redundancy because he had been working there twenty years and they were demanding him to take a another Job role for ten thousand less and he wanted his redundancy but had to oblige the company policy Of Genesis management and to go through the reapply for his Job and fail the interview to get his redundancy..

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    They need to sort out the skull duggery of there senior managers ,to which they have now employed Two Head of operations Staff/one Directorate and seven Business managers and 32 service managers..one executive/ too many chiefs and not enough indians and five Directors resigned last year and they were paid out half million during there infrastructures changes in compensation/ they always carry out what they wish and they have the attitude of the Titanic because they believe ,they are unsinkable..they love gloss and brochures and create a veneer and you only know some home truths until you under there regime..matters will get worse for there customers because of incompetences
