    Negative Outlook
    No opinion of CEO

    I have been working at Mencap full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    The people you support are lovely.

    Cons

    Because the pay is bad and Mencap cannot recruit they will employ absolute dross which they expect you to work alongside and put up with, you will then have to raise concerns and then be shunned with no support from management. I have changed my location to hide my identity.

    Advice to Management

    Hire better candidates, recognise and reward good work, be around more, get rid of staff who obviously shouldn't be working in care, take concerns seriously, support your good staff.
