Manager in London, Greater London
A values based culture
Working for Change Grow Live has been a wonderful experience. The work in this sector will always be tough at times and this is a hard working organisation. In exchange for my hard work and commitment, I have received excellent training and coaching opportunities, a level of autonomy to work to my strengths, good robust support from managers and central teams, and a level of compassion and values based decision making that I have not noted in similar organisations. Most importantly, I have been proud to work for an organisation that so clearly demonstrates its values in practice. Particularly during the COVID Pandemic.

Preston avoid at all cost
Well other areas succeed Preston by far, I've worked for several cgl companies in 4 locations and Preston by far is the worst, management fine, as long as they have nothing to do there OK, however you will often find eneough is never enough, it's a constant battle of the goal post moving to suit them, if you disagree or challenge, you are in for a life time of fault picking, scrutinisation, and your job purposely made as difficult as possible, case loads in the 100s and your expected to manage these people safely and effectively, in 7and half hours per day, your expected to completely mutli task impossibilities, they never manage to keep staff for long because of the high caseloads and expectations, so staff if cgl are lucky only last a couple of months, team leaders offer no support at all most the time there is only one as the other tends to be off sick permanently and when support is offered after you have practically begged for it, it lasts all but 5 mins and nothing is ever resolved, there is a massive divide between the actual cgl workers and the NHS staff who tuped over on NHS tnc they are the golden nuggets of the establishment, nothing ever gets said to them as cgl are to fearful of the unions there work load is massively easier than a cgl worker as they can't be upset or to stressed otherwise they will be off sick and unions are involved, they can't put a foot wrong, however if your a cgl worker you are treated second best, for case load management, the cgl workers tend to get harder case loads than the NHS workers again favoritism, and fear of unions and also element of hierarchy, the stress alone of dealing and trying to manage 100 plus case load is un bearing, it comes to somthing social workers even comment that even their job is not as stressing, I could go on and on, please cgl is a good place to work in the right location however PRESTON AVOID AT ALL COST I'm not joking

No Respect For Staff, poor management
If you thinking of working for this company I would think again. Management has no respect for staff and you are just a statistic. The turn over of staff is high. I have worked in drug and alcohol for 14 years and have been tuped over many contracts. CGL have been the worse company I have worked for. The company does not respect the values and opinions of staff. The salary is poor considering what they expect of you. They are not family focused or service user focused. Overworked and under paid. Management are unprofessional.
