Pros

+flexible working condtions
+fairly gentle treatment of staff
+the mission (affordable housing) is a good one
+some middle managers and execs very good
+lots of kind, compassionate people committed to helpign the community

Cons

+ some execs not so good
+wouldnt want to be a manager as HR will always take the side of the Employee, they need a body and the bullets too, before they agree to let anyone go. (unless you cross the wrong exec)
+pay average for industry

Advice to Management

Execs..Decide whether you are a private company or a public company and sort out the staff with the ex-council attitudes. Bring all the HA's up to the same level before you grow any more.

    I worked at Circle House full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    Great people (or there were before the mass redundancies), supportive managers, good progression, fair wages, good benefits, nice offices, flexible working.

    Cons

    Too. Much. Change. I mean it was non stop. Persistently wasting money on contractors and external companies for the latest overhaul/change process/improvement blah blah blah. LOTS of negative changes since the merger. Not the place it was, swung too far commercial, lost its social heart.

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

    Pros

    Good annual leave, bonuses and money for glasses. Great staff and residents. Good investment in staff training and opportunities to get promoted.

    Cons

    Being responsible for things you have no control over. Lots of restructures and good staff lost. Company got too big and personal touch with residents lost.

    Advice to Management

    Have a good repairs contractor!
