Does Care UK offer vacation time?

Cons

No sick pay scheme for current level of staff Limited nursing or senior staff contracts to up to 45 hours Employer is forced due to staff shortages to move you on nights or out from nights Unstable environment due to some non-interested newcomers in domain No scheme of increasing salary by % for each year remaining together

Advice to Management

Say "Hello" before asking or guiding for a new task Open and listen advices if the target of Outstanding is to be permanent Be tolerant towards your senior staff which support and guide for years Remain stiff and firm in front of new-comers who want to cut corners and have demands (which in balance make the older ones feel put on second spot) Spread the workload even on the same ranked staff as they all get the same pay

Does Care UK offer vision insurance?

Pros

Free staff meals Nice shift pattern - 8-10 hour shifts with breaks and every other weekend off. Decent pay and pension plan.

Cons

Both my immediate managers had been working there since the site opened and so it was difficult to bring anything new to the table. The line manager bred an environment of hostility between team members, favouriting some and not others for example and giving perks based on this. What could have been an interesting and easy to work in environment, was ultimately ruined by the people in it.

Advice to Management

My advice to upper management is to pay more attention to what’s actually going on within departments. I don’t think I would have left if issues had been dealt with correctly. My managers direct manager had no interest in visiting our department and left him to it for much of the time, allowing him to run it into the ground.
