Fake

Indeed featured review

The most useful review selected by Indeed
Salary and benefits do not reflect your actual work, and no set levels to ensure fairness amongst staff. Management lie their way out of situations to make themselves look better. Company expect too much out of you and want you to be flexible with working hours when it suits them. Given Great information at the start of employment but it doesn’t turn out to be truthful. More thought and effort needs to be put into following own policies rather than picking fault with staff trying to do a good job on a daily basis.

Shocking

Shocking place to work, poor pay, no benefits, overworked rundown unskilled staff. Head of care was disgraceful, unfair and couldn’t run a bath never mind a care service.

Probably the best company I have worked for

Working with the young people is great. The training and support from management is excellent you couldn't ask for anything better. The employment benefits are good the management really care about the staff team there is even free gym membership. Yes the work is hard but you get out what you put in - that is care work! I have learnt a lot over the years I have worked there and wouldn't want to do anything else . A great job

Pros

The guys, the staff team, training and management

Cons

Nothing

Rewarding job but with management challenges

Very rewarding job having positive impact directly to learners and seeing them grow and flourish through registered managers role. Pay is well below standard and results in high staff turnover and burnout . But positive steps put into place adressing this with some extra support being put into place. Work life balance off, due to unpaid on calls expected to be taken by registered managers and frequently contacted out of hours on non essentially things plus alot of changes to rota and unscheduled sleep rota system . Management approachable but not willing to make changes quickly or review system to a mutual beneficial outcome. Overall a good place to grow and progress within but wages needs improvement and company needs to better understand the need for a better work life balance .

Pros

Direct positive influence . Progression witin rapid. Learner focussed culture. Staff turnover

Cons

Unrotaed sleep system, Sub par wages and work benefits, Unproductive managment response to issue and dealing with concerns

Don’t even think about applying

Lovely service users and supportive staff. Management are awful and treat you like dirt. Very short staff and staff are push to there limits. Tensions raise in houses as everyone is stressed. Parents are lied too about their children’s care and activities. Weekend should be fun and exciting not spending all weekend In front of tv with minimum staff. Very long hours and no support. I would never send my children there.

Pros

Hard working staff and service users

Cons

Management and lack of support. Bullying from management

Stressful

Working at Condover is very stressful, the hours are long and the pay is poor. You do get full training which is a positive. The learners are a lovely bunch of people and it's very rewarding yet head office is not so helpful at all, they will expect you to travel and won't reimburse your travel at all, they don't really have no respect for the support workers when actual fact the support workers are the back bone to the company. The best part about the job is taking the residents out on day trips and seeing them happy is the nowt rewarding part of the job

Pros

Seeing the learners happy

Cons

Long hours

Start with so much potential and end with bullying and poor management

When I started working for CCL the whole ethos was around supportive management, family atmosphere and progression. Whilst the 'grow your own' is certainly a plus, the rest of the organisation gives little to be desired. Family members and those in with management see themselves jumping up the ladder quickly and perform terribly. Communication is appalling. The NAPPI (defence training) allows the company to discipline and sack those that raise concerns or believe the system to be flawed. Its such a shame that this company appears to help fledgling careers and then boots them out as soon as they are questioned in any way. No transparency, no care, no support.

great place to work

Grafton is a lovely place to work, the students are amazing people and work hard at developing their skills and the staff team are supportive, happy and great to work with, i have worked for nearly 2 years at grafton and it is a very rewarding busy job with great benefits for me as a mum with small children, it fits in well with my life and allows me to be a mum and do a job that i love.
