    Negative Outlook
    No Opinion of CEO

    I have been working at Care UK part-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    Flexible working for parents

    Cons

    No specific dedicated trainers for admin roles so expected to train plus deal with workload simultaneously. Not valued and seen as replaceable and unappreciated, morale rock bottom. Colleagues leave and not replaced causing stress and anxiety with an expectation to absorb additional workload/ without any discussion of distribution of workload or future plan. Pay is diabolical just above minimum - increased by 30 pence in nearly 5 years. Opportunity to develop minimal. Definitely regressed and less employable as not unskilled since joining. Since highlighting concerns, speaking up about the issues , seem as a problem. I find myself subjected to an extreme level of scrutiny and micro management which is unhelpful. Too many changes & no clarity. Environment is back to school with constant monitoring.
