Very little money for too much work
Constantly overworked and very little support. They call themselves a caring employer, but when it comes to it, they haven’t a clue on how to treat staff fairly and only hear what they want to hear. Always asking for change, but when you put forward suggestions, they aren’t ready for progression. Way behind on technology and a lot of people in positions that know less than they should.

Stressful and demoralising
The biggest mistake I ever made working for this company. They don't seem to employ staff that are excellent at what they do - they all seem either average or below average. Management are picked because they are yes men and not by talent. Hours are horrendous and long which can prove problematic. I am planning to leave due to other issues far too many to log.

Terrible Job, Poverty Pay
One just has to look at their job description to see that they're asking an awful lot from candidates for not much more than subsistence pay.Furthermore you're working with volatile and vulnerable people in a job that can be utterly exhausting.Exploitation if ever I saw it. Best a avoided.

Good starting point
TPS offers a good starting point in the care sector with a good and regular training program. Your wages are always paid on time and if the wrong amount then is never anything to do with accounts. However, TPS has a strange policy on recruiting, particularly with management. I have seen people working extremely hard and pulled up for the slightest thing and on the other hand people who sit about on their phones of chatting to other staff and ignoring service users that seemed to get away with everything and in some cases ear marked for promotion. Complaints usually go unheard and when taken seriously at times can be brushed under the carpet.

Management don't listen to the employee when they are problems on the floor, and ignore the best way to solve this, don't agree with management decisions as sometimes not policy
