I worked at Leonard Cheshire Foundation
Pros – Pay is better than many comparable organisations, at least in head office. Sheer size of the organisation offers some scope for new opportunities.
Cons – Overly political in many parts of the organisation. Lack of quality leadership. Some people don't take the work as seriously as they should.
Advice to Senior Management – Needs some stability now, and to focus on attracting and bringing through good talent, particularly on the younger end where the marketplace is full of overtrained graduates. Think carefully about how to retain and develop the best of these people. Rebranding was good and strong, but don't waste things like Creature Discomforts - there's still a place for it. If possible, make sure everyone at head office visits at least one service each year to keep things grounded.
No, I would not recommend this company to a friend
