People & Performance Directorate member in Burghfield Common, UK

Lovely colleagues, senior priorities need review
Pros: Great cause, really lovely & passionate colleagues, good work-life balance, great benefits.Cons: CEO priorities are about the dogs only. All effort & resource is spent on operations. Impact of increasing operational workforce & deliveries not thought through past the obvious visible change. E.g. support functions not increased in parallel leading to them being under resourced & stretched.

Stop employing people on huge salaries who don't know what they are doing and are incapable of managing staff.
Believe all the reports about a toxic culture of blame and bullying -Bullying is rife, starts at the top with ego fueled “Heads of Department”and trickles down to line managers. Mistakes made by senior mangers which are quickly covered up. HR are useless if you go to them about being treated unfairly. Health and wellbeing is talked about a lot but definitely not practised at Guide Dogs.The charity is wasting so much money and loosing supporters in the wake of their flippant spending and poor use of donor funds.A prime example of this is the millions of pounds wasted on rebrand that nobody likes.

Awful Company
Only one training day and then no further guidance, no management, unprofessional company with constant threats of being fired if you don't make them enough money, on your feet all day and not told where you're going to be working until an hour before you start
