God acres housing association

Indeed featured review

The most useful review selected by Indeed
Well capable of my trade and associated trades but it was put under lots of pressure. As an agency joiner I think all I wanted to do was recoup their money and they just want somebody who is bish bash bosh.. not somebody who cares about their work

Disjointed company

Very chaotic job with so many top priorities it becomes confusing. Too many people sending instructions rather than doing the job themselves. Not given enough time to concentrate on the core role, with individuals in the organisation unwilling to listen and make changes.

Pros

Flexible working

Cons

Poor leadership at Director level

Horrible place to work

When I went to work at Broadacres everyone said it was a great place to work and how you were looked after, how wrong those people were! They dont listen to people, some management take advantage of their position and talk to people like they are nothing. If your face doesnt fit they make your life a misery & treat you badly. It's not a very nice place to work if you have a brain and want to make improvements they knock your confidence, make you feel incompetent. A bunch of bullies!

Pros

Free tea/coffee

Cons

They dont listen to people working on the ground

Great place to work. Plenty of training and rewarding work

Worked for Broadacres for 3 years and is the best place I've worked. Friendly colleagues and approachable managers. I would recommend Broadacres to anyone and have several times.

A really good company to work for!

From my interview, throughout my onboarding and into my employment with Broadacres I have been treat with nothing but respect and integrity. I have only been with the organisation under a year but I am so pleased I made the move here. Unlike other companies I have worked for you feel valued and you're not just treat like a number or a cog in the machine, you and your opinions matter at Broadacres! There is a very positive workplace culture that transcends all employee levels and the organisation's mission and values are worked towards by the entire workforce. I cannot stress enough how kind and helpful everyone who works here is. Customer experience is at the heart of everything we do, but I have never seen the "façade" drop with any employees - which goes to show this attitude is not just an act! Everyone here acts with empathy, passion and respect towards internal/external customers. I was looking for more of a challenge in my role and I have certainly found that. I am learning and developing my skills and knowledge base and I am exposed to more than in previous roles which makes me feel as though I am trusted, valued and appreciated. I am given a lot of responsibility and freedom in my position. It gives me pride to work for an organisation that has such a positive effect on people's lives. I would highly recommend Broadacres Housing Association as an employer.

IT Department Business Support

I worked here for a number of years and can only say that it was a completely demoralising and detrimental experience. The job might be okay if you are similar in personality type to the managers but if you have any kind of empathy or intelligence I would suggest you take your talent and skills to somewhere people appreciate you. Really bad. 1 star 🌟 review.

Pros

Free coffee but don't dare to put the milk on your cereal.

Cons

The management, do as I say and then they do as they want.

A busy place with an interesting workload

Managed the in house team of various trades and coordinating the planned works on housing association maintenance of kitchens and bathrooms. Covering sick leave. Most of my day was spent out on site returning at the end of the day to review and up date the programme of works. I worked what ever hours the job demanded I and was happy to do so.

Pros

Always kept busy

Cons

None

Great organisation to work for

Very emotionally demanding job role but also very rewarding. Great working environment and facilities. Typical day would be arrange one's own diary, attending support session and then inputting all relevant information upon return to the office.

Pros

Free tea and coffee

Cons

Sometimes long hours.
