Good work life balance but management rule by fear

Have loved my years at Tŷ Hafan, but management tier is very cut throat and has been very unstable. Many changes at Executive and CEO level. So many changes with lack of future direction.

Pros

Work satisfaction

Cons

Expectations of management and ruled by fear

In it for love, not money.

Managed shop. As a charity, the work the nurses do at the hospice is simply astounding, admirable, and amazing. From that perspective, I was very proud to work for Ty Hafan.However if you work on the retail side, be prepared for toxicity, belittlement, lack of gratitude, backbiting, being overlooked, and constant criticism from everyone above you. Make sure you bring your backbone.

Pros

Amazing volunteers I'm still friends with today.

Cons

As above.

Poor Management at Head Office

Sadly very poor management at Head Office with confusing leadership and little direction for staff. Stressful place to work due to unmanageable workload and lack of understanding of people’s job roles. Many people off sick due to stress.

Pros

Fair salary

Cons

Stressful workload with poor management

Supportive Culture

Great place to work. Management very supportive. Workload can be challenging at times and targets can seem a bit out of reach. Work life balance is excellent and colleagues dare a pleasure to work with

Pros

Work life balance

Cons

Low(ish) salary

Demanding staff

Has had a few issues with staff demands over the last few years, with good members of staff being pushed out with inexperienced staff being favored. Senior staff and care management are out of touch with the demands of nursing. 4 different CEO’s in the space of 5 or so years is a bit of a concern.. no direction from the top level and concerns within the board are issues

Productive

On a voluntary basis, it's a great place to work! Everyone is really friendly and always comes to your help when needed without judgement. Was able to learn in a relaxed environment and was given a lot of opportunities within the local charity shop.

Productive and fun workplace

I have absolutely loved my time at Ty Hafan! I was a volunteer at weekends and couldn't have found a more enjoyable place to work or even ask for kinder staff. By far the best job I've ever had.

Good Co-workers

I would clean newly donated clothes, keep items in good order, deal with customers at the till and most importantly make cups of tea. Very relaxed culture but still got the job done.

was a good fun place.

Loved working there for the first two years, we had fun while still getting on with the job I.e putting furniture together or apart, taking deliveries, til work. Then a new area manager had new idea's that I personally did not think would work...since onlyone person is still there out of ten, I think I was right.

Pros

workmates

Cons

new idea's
