So much happier as no longer work there. Staff are two faced and there is always Chinese whispers this also includes manger and deputy who also like to get involved with the Gossip. Staff do what they want & if your there favourites you get away with it. Management is absolutely shocking & always covering incidents up and lying. Treat staff badly with there bullying manner never get your say always how mangers like it. Management only be nice if they need you to help them out otherwise no appreciation or respect for any staff only managements favourites. Work place is completely corrupted & would not class this as a professional work place at all as ive seen it for myself and glad i got out when i did!!!!! Always short staffed. Over worked to the extreme & no incentive given for this people just work because put on the spot as pay rate is basic. PLEASE IF YOUR THINKING ABOUT APPLYING HERE JUST STOP THERE ARE MUCH MUCH BETTER CARE HOMES OUT THERE. THAT ARE RUN PROPERLY AND PROFESSIONALLY!
Pros
Nice residents
Cons
Very bad management in all aspects. Poor pay, understaffed everyday. Over worked no appreciation

I have been with the company now for 3 years. There is not a day I don't like coming in to work. Everyday is different, good team work and a happy place to work. All the staff are friendly and always like to please. The residents are happy and content, if not we deal with the situations and always there to help them.
Pros
Nice people to work with and lovely residents!!

Working here was horrible, the manager is a nasty patronising stuck up women and her care managers are no better. You're completely left alone to just get on with things after only 2 shadow shifts, I remember at one point having 18 residents and no help because we were under staffed yet the manager refused to employ somebody new. You don't get appreciated for all the work you do, in the end i dreaded walking into that place. None of this is to mention how they treat the residents.. I thought this was how all care homes were until I started working in my new loving caring home where we all pull together as a team. I can not speak for all runwood homes but if you are considering applying for WISDEN COURT STEVENAGE please DO NOT.
Pros
The residents are all amazing.
Cons
Management, payrate (7.20), staff, facilities and much more.

on the whole the company is good to work for they apply good care to there service uses and pull together as a team to do so They work long hours to provide the best care possible and become more of a family than a place to work
