    I have been working at Carr Gomm full-time for more than 4 years

    Pros

    Cons

    the role is challenging but rewarding

  2. Shocked by toxic atmosphere at this company

      Former Employee - Support Assistant 

      I worked at Carr Gomm full-time

      Pros

      Really rewarding to forge real connections with vulnerable people and to help them. If you enjoy spending time with people and helping people make a real difference to their lives, you'll love this aspect of it.

      Cons

      Be careful - workers are pitted against each other by Management, encouraged to dislike and distrust each-other. When I was there my Manager constantly encouraged workers to say negative things about other workers - you would then be told exactly what the other person had said about you, which was always negative, creating a really uneasy 'chinese whispers' type atmosphere in the office. They make you feel like you're...

      I worked at Carr Gomm full-time for more than a year

      Pros

      Supporting people who really need help

      Cons

      This company is shocking. Senior managers couldnt care less about staff, service users or service managers. Staff are run down. Services are always understaffed resulting in people not being looked after as they should. Do senior management care? No, not one bit. They only shout about money and training and if staff make errors due to being overworkered, all they want is action against them. Everything is about covering...

      Advice to Management

      Do your job before its too late. Hire people to run the company who are qualified rather than because they have worked for you a number of years. Look at the state of the services and how unhappy people are.

      I have been working at Carr Gomm full-time

      Pros

      Amazing feeling when you help somebody and see the impact you have on their lives and the progress they make for themselves. Amazing little team where I am.

      Cons

      Management are only bothered about themselves. The higher up you go, the worse they are. No thought or care for how much good the staff do, management only bother when there is something negative...but they wait until things are almost not repairable.

      Advice to Management

      Look after the people on the front line! Don't take what managers say as gospel...we are the ones working with the people! Ensure you only allow people with 'people skills' to be managers, not rude, arrogant, nasty people.

      I worked at Carr Gomm full-time for more than 4 years

      Pros

      much over time offered within certain services. chance given to spend time supporting some very vulnerable adults with complex needs

      Cons

      this is a company who, in the main, could not care less about it's staff. they even go so far as to think of their staff as the enemy and do little to support them or listen to them. they certainly do not take on board the valuable comments/suggestions that the staff make. i have witnessed managers and senior management behave in such a way as to suggest they think of their staff team as being troublesome to them....

      Advice to Management

      think of your staff as an asset as opposed to anything else. the first port of call to running a great and successful business as to allow your staff to feel listened to and valued and appreciated. dont be so secretive towards your staff and dont be so reluctant to keep them informed as to what is happening and is going to be happening.

        I have been working at Carr Gomm

        Pros

        As a support assistant I have enjoyed working with all different people. Different needs and different dreams and aspirations. A small step forward in some of the lives of the people we support can be a huge change in their enjoyment of life. I came to the company for a proposed six weeks to update my practice as I taught social care at the local college. I was reminded of how much I enjoyed this type of work when I did...

        Cons

        Although we have national standards and policies they are not always interpreted the same way in many services. This can be both confusing and frustrating. However when this is raised with management it is usually addressed and sorted

        Advice to Management

        Cherish your staff as some times we feel taken for granted. A simple thing like saying well done to someone can go miles in staff morale

        I enjoyed working with the service users. It was challenging but rewarding.

        Cons

        It seems that this company has a lot of staff off sick. They are always looking for cover. There can be a lot of back stabbing within the work place. So, please watch your back. They are ruthless in conducting their disciplinary procedures. They do not always listen to all side of the argument.
