Barchester Healthcare Employee Review

Supportive if you work hard

Very good employers if you work hard and show initiative , recognise good employees and reward them with advancement in the company. Give bonuses for attaining targets, I love working at my job, it’s very satisfying and I have built good relationships with my residents and other staff, it can be challenging but that’s a plus because it’s never boring!!

Pros

Fun environment

Cons

Staffing can be an issue

Same role

Long hours - good pay

Generally working for Ejh was a great role however management placed undue pressure on staff even when understaffed. I'm glad there was a shakeup of recently but at the core of it all the management behind the scenes still persist with demands. Carers are amazing and are worth their weight in gold. I would go back. Hours are immense and working on days off with constant calls doesn't allow for a good work life balance. And working every weekend made life difficult.

Pros

Free lunch good pay

Cons

Poor Management style

Low staff morale

Poor management style, culture of bullying appears to be deeply embedded within the organisation. Lack of empathy, support and care for staff. Morale is subsequently at rock bottom.Unrealistic expectations of staff given the chronic shortage of Nurses and carers.Lovely residents and care and support staff.

Pros

Reasonable salary

Cons

Long hours, chronically understaffed

Same role

Exhausting experience

At first it felt organised and well lead, as I got to know the work load is over the top. Constant pressure from the manager to finish the care plans in the time frame provided. Mandatory meetings that you must attend even on your days off. Good pay with a lot of responsibility.
