    I worked at Prestige Nursing full-time

    Pros

    Working with a variety of clients and knowing you've made a difference to their lives

    Cons

    Poor management at both branch and senior level

    Advice to Management

    Put your staff first, as Richard Branson once said "You take care of staff, they'll take care of business'"

    I worked at Prestige Nursing part-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Lots of work, I could choose my own hours, if I didn't like a placement then I would just not return, over time you get to do more of the placements you like.

    Cons

    No guarantees of work so not for the nervous, lack of continuity can mean that you are always having to establish new work relationships, navigate your way around unknown clinical areas and quickly try to adapt to new routines and different work cultures.

    Advice to Management

    I found management to be helpful most of the time but they did need to sort out more supervision and ongoing training.

    Negative Outlook

    Pros

    Flexible hours, easy to add availability

    Cons

    Lack of shifts. I have been an employee for over a year, completed all training (Online and practical), and only been given two shifts (With an external company, not even directly with prestige).
    Had PEG training and multiple packages cancelled (Without notification, had to ring up to ask why I had not been contacted with my start date)
    Have listed every weekend on my availability, and offered other days on a week-dependant basis, but have not been offered any shifts.
    Rang the office at least 3 times this year about shifts to be told I'd be contacted within the next week, never had a phone call back from them.
    May be good if you are very very flexible i.e. can offer any day/time. Otherwise it is unlikely you will get any shifts, especially when working part time.

    Advice to Management

    Staff are very friendly, but unorganised and a HUGE lack of communication. Company are continually hiring, but this should be put on hold if there are not eve enough shifts for current employees.

    Pros

    The care staff are great and as agency you only have to work hours that suit you. The client are lovely

    Cons

    The office staff are bad in the way of running the company. The training could be a lot better. Giving you 10 min to get from on side of the city to the other

    Advice to Management

    The best thing could have happened they all left

    I worked at Prestige Nursing full-time

    Pros

    Annual Bonus; 35 hours per week + 1 hour for lunch, work autonomously, sick pay.

    Cons

    Zero support, complete lack of communication, poor direction and management. Worked without a team or proper handover at the start of job; workload enormous with no help or direction. Paid to co-ordinate not to manage! Asked for reduced hours as am a single parent and wanted to be able to collect the children from school twice weekly which was massively frowned upon and largely overlooked. No praise and absolutely no support. Office environment dire, unfriendly and so quiet you could hear a pin drop due to restrictions on music and talking.

    Advice to Management

    Manage effectively. Give praise, leadership and support. Be clear with your instructions without changing your mind umpteen times mid-project. Be warm, approachable - and smile!

    I have been working at Prestige Nursing full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Good support and training ..... staff and clients lovely to work with ..... I love the fact I can have a job flexiable around school term times/Office staff fully understand/as all parents struggle with childcare.

    Cons

    Provided work with availability max hours (example 50 hrs / weekly) ..... actually receive less than half the given hours to work. But someone with no children/ available full time, will get majority of full time hours.
