Okay job but could have been better

Indeed featured review

The most useful review selected by Indeed
Temporary, part time job, covering maternity leave. Job was relatively straight-forward and enjoyable, providing a worthwhile service. Colleagues helpful, supportive as was Line Manager. Salary poor and working conditions could be better.

Awful Awful Awful company

They don’t care about their employees, all they want is you working like a robot, don’t raise concerns, your opinions don’t matter. Absolutely no support from managers and supervisors are horrible.

Pros

They will train you

Cons

Long hours, micromanagement, stress, politics definitely and sometimes they forget to pay you full.

Awful organisation

At first things were ok, but people started to leave the organisation in droves, giving me doubts. Pretty soon after, I was left with no doubt ...a totally clueless, amateur team.

Worst Place I have ever worked

Very poor. I wouldn't even give it 1 star to be honest. Very poorly run. Badly managed. No laws or regulations followed. Don't care about their staff. No clue of any Health & Safety laws. NHS should fund a company who know what they are doing. some staff lack experience.

Pros

none

Cons

long hours intop the night with no thanks or support from management

Underminding and manipulative managers

Staff and clients are great but managers continue to undermine staff to cover their own mistakes. Asked to speak up but then get blamed for doing so..

Pros

Staff and clients

Cons

Staff get blamed for everything

A well run positive place of work

A very busy fast paced place of work. One day never like another. Lots of change going on constantly. My personal growth within this organisation has been very noticeable and enjoyable. Superb colleagues all very friendly and welcoming. Hardworking approachable management team. The hardest part of the job is dealing with distressed clients. However I always enjoy helping clients on the phone who are very anxious and feeling unsure or embarrassed about accessing a mental health service, I find this highly rewarding. The monthly Team Meeting is always well attended thus ensuring the service moves forward and continually keeps up with the demands on the service,

Pros

Close to town centre shops and some free parking

Cons

Late night working Monday - Thursdays till 8pm

Nice job.

A typical day would include opening up the office, taking and forwarding messages, forwarding calls, meeting and greeting clients, filing and sending out appointment letters. The management were supportive in regards to personal issues and work life balance. Co workers were also supportive and nice to work with. This was a nice little part time job and was not difficult at any time. The most enjoyable part of the job was meeting and greeting visitors.

MHM has to be one of the best employers I have worked for. Management are very supportive not only from a work perspective but also go above and beyond to help with career growth and personal circumstances.

Pros

Cons

Majority of training is carried out in sunderland
