    I worked at Home Group full-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    There are lots of good people working for this company, and there is a good team atmosphere. There are plenty of job opportunities if you work in Head Office.

    Cons

    The company seems to be going through a constant restructure, in my almost 8 years there I went through 3 of them. Staff turnover is huge, In the past 2 years around 75% of the staff in my office have left the company. Rates of pay are not the best, with certain jobs being paid considerably less than the same job with other companies.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    There is a definite feeling of management not caring about staff amongst certain people, and the constant restructures are not helping with staff morale.

    I worked at Home Group full-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    It's easy to get to with good transport links to everywhere you want to go. The majority of the staff are very nice and friendly. The work is relatively light, stress free and can be completed by the majority of people with an ounce of intelligence.

    Cons

    -An executive team made up of Eton/Private school alumni who have no idea of the lives their clients live. They are completely out of touch in that sense and this has shown on a number of occasions through backwards decisions and frivolous spending of clients money on anything but their homes or support
    -Little career progression as the high money jobs are often sidelined for friends or colleagues before they are advertised.
    -Directors bringing in their friends/girlfriends into high paying/responsibility roles over people that have worked at the company for a number of years who have infinitely more experience
    -You can tell that the majority of your colleagues don't want to be there
    -Often a "manager" will make a decision based on their experience (which often isn't very much) which effects the way you and your team work in 90% of the time, a negative way
    -Seems to be a platform for wannabe MP's

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Please go back to your land of commercialism and making "money". Home Group isn't about that, its about CARE & SUPPORT.
