Bank Receptionist in Chalfont Saint Giles, Buckinghamshire
on 19 November 2019
Fair
A good company to work for. I was only bank receptionist but I knew early on that there wouldn't be much opportunity to work any reasonable length of time as the permanent receptionist hardly took time off and they never trained me for the second receptionist role in the other department which they were supposed to.

Poor place to work.
I used to work at the society and I would never go back. The blame culture from management to front line staff was horrendous. If anything went wrong in the house front line staff were blamed for it.Management never listened to frontline staff. They always said we put the residents first but they never did it was all about training and care certificates then the residents. Management never did anything about serious issues which occured within the house. Director of care services is useless also didn't care about front line staff and always took management side. WOULD NOT RECOMMEND ANYONE TO WORK HERE.

Worthwhile job, poor money and no leadership
Nice place to work, but recent redundancies showed what higher management are really like, all made redundant were direct support for residents on low wages, no higher management lost their jobs, they looked after each other, felt really sorry, all activities team and therapy teams were let go, coffee shop for residents stopped, but not one person in the top 25% of wages at the epilepsy Soceity lost their jobs, and none have direct contact with residents,32 people approx were made redundant, people who made residents life so much better, put a smile on residents faces, much more than money can buy, but higher management were only interested in preserving their jobs, and whatever they say,they are ruthless, and had this planned a lot longer than recently,they made out how they felt so bad about doing this, and actually wanted you to feel sorry for the predicament they were in, but it was all false, and a lot of people saw through it, they actually wanted therapy and activities co ordinators to take on support workers roles, for example an activities person, would become a support worker,take drop in wages, and be expected to do 3 roles in one, support worker, activities and a driver, management actually thought we were fools.

evil environment
Pay is a joke.Massive blame culture, mentality of staff shocking. Management mentally in 80.Staff unfriendly.I would not place my relatives there.

A lot of kindness and compassion from all who work here
There's a family feel here - the doctors are experts in their field and they are kind and compassionate with the patients. The consultants keep abreast with new technology and also with new pharmaceuticals. The residents are cared for by well trained and compassionate staff.
