    I worked at Circle full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Really good workforce, passionate about their roles and assisting their communities/service users. Lots of knowledge and experiance for both the housing and care industries, great support from other employees.

    Cons

    Senior leadership focused on looking good externally, making money and saving resources. Change for change sake happen too offten. Promotion often for who says the right thing/known based not perfromance. Focus not on services provided. Employing people who make you look good not because they can do the best for the company. Too many senior leaders talk the talk but don't action anything....often not undersatnding how to!

    Advice to Management

    Listen to the staff who are still there, they know their roles and what is needed to upport the communities/service users.
    Don't keep following the old patterns and employing/promoting people to look good, pick the culture and hire for that.

    I worked at Circle full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Reasonably good pay and T&Cs

    Cons

    Had merged a couple of times since I joined in 1996 to become huge HA but services to tenants and leaseholders gone downhill. Also now trying to derecognise Unions .

    Advice to Management

    Appreciate and listen to your staff. Recognise that the Unions have done brilliant work for Circle over the years and don't be so quick to only look for the negative.

    I worked at Circle as a contractor (More than a year)

    Pros

    People really believe in what they are doing

    Cons

    Lacked coherent strategy from centre to individual RPs. Completely under utilised staff.

    Advice to Management

    Even contractors want to be utilised to full capacity - too much work allocated to those sitting in head office
