    I worked at Royal National Institute of Blind People full-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    Felt like I made a difference to blind and partially sighted people, good pension, worked with great people, brilliant team, really friendly bunch of staff, great city to work in

    Cons

    Remote offices/centres weren't really made to feel part of what was once termed "One RNIB", Senior Mgt in London didn't really seem to care about regional staff, the whole transfer of staff to Action for Blind People was done very badly indeed and very loyal staff were treated very unfairly - TUPE isn't worth a thing if you have a restructure after a year and make everyone redundant and have to apply for a job with more responsibility and less pay.

    New CEO didn't really seem to care about regional staff or blind and partially sighted people - it was more about RNIB as a business, and making money in my opinion

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Treat staff better, don't transfer your staff to another charity (Action for Blind People), don't make some of your best staff redundant, keep your best people and use their talents and enthusiasm, don't settle for second best

    If only they did themselves what they expect other employers to do in relation to employing and retaining blind people

    I have been working at Royal National Institute of Blind People

    Pros

    Work/life balance issues usually well supported

    Cons

    It's hard to take an yemployer seriously when the campaign and tell the outside world that they should employ blind and partially sighted people when the Organisation itself does nothing to discriminate positively with regards to employing blind and partially sighted people. Other than if 2 candidates have exactly the same mark at interview the blind and partiall.y sighted person would get the job. Over the last year and a half most of the staff who have a guide dog, whom I used to work with, were the first to be made redundant - not what you'd expect. Aren't these the very people who will find it most difficult in the current economic climate to get other employers to consider them? Shouldn't they have been given re=trainining and support to switch to other roels within the Organisation if their post was being made redundant. I am activly looking for another job because I feel the Organisation is hypocritical and it's not something I want to be part of.
    Ps trustees get lots spent on added extras such as a voice coach and overnight expenses
