    Great knowledge of current market. Great management structure. Good work life balance and recognisition from senior management.

    Many smaller providers are snapping up local business for less.

    Home Star awards need to have some localised variation for staff.

    Former Employee - Relief Worker

    I worked at Home Group part-time for less than a year

    Pros

    The staff were great and loved working with the women within the refuge. Learnt a great deal about domestic violence.

    Cons

    Hated the manager. Never priased you for the work you did. You could work your butt off, but it was never enough.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    To be fair to the staff and less favourtism towards the manager from other managers. To appreciate the hard work that the lower level staff do and to be less snotty.

    Former Employee - Anonymous Employee in Newcastle upon Tyne, England (UK)

    I worked at Home Group full-time for 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.

    Former Employee - Neighbourhood Team Leader  in  Houghton-le-Spring, England (UK)
    Former Employee - Neighbourhood Team Leader in Houghton-le-Spring, England (UK)

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

    Pros

    Good pay and family friendly benefits

    Cons

    Lots of people appointed due to who they know or being friends with higher management. Endless restructures which change roles but do not deal with the poor performers who get moved around the business. Trying to be all things to all customers rather than just making tenants stick to there tenancy agreement and offering value for money

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Do a proper restructure and removed the senior to middle managers that have been in place for years and are appointing their pals who are not up to the job. Get people in with ability and start getting back to being an organisation that enforces its tenancy agreements rather than appeasing the customers that shout the loudest.
