    Je travaille chez Alzheimer's Society à temps partiel (Pendant plus de 3 ans)

    Avantages

    Emotionally rewarding work overall and lovely people. Good training offered.

    Inconvénients

    HR are only interested in saving money and do not value individual employees. Low staff morale resulting in high turnover of staff.

    Conseils à la direction

    Actually value those people on the front-line and perhaps there wouldn't be such a constant turnover of staff.

    Avantages

    Colleagues are great and they have a vision and strive to get there.

    Conseils à la direction

    Communication can be vastly improved.

    J'ai travaillé chez Alzheimer's Society en Contrat Permanent

    Avantages

    The front line staff are fantastic with a real passion for the cause.

    Inconvénients

    HR support is inconsistent and a total lack of equity across the organisation's directorates in terms of following policy. Policies are not fit for purpose and too open for interpretation

    Senior leadership team are disengaged from frontline and making huge decision without really engagement with frontline staff and most importantly service users. Constant feedback from employment surveys show that people are unhappy with heir leadership but nothing has changed. People are scared to challenge and general feeling of no faith in their leadership. Shambolic

    Overambitious strategy with a focus on numbers rather than outcomes for people affected by dementia. Lost their way in focussing on what is important

    Communication is dire and change is managed appallingly quite often down to lack of understanding as to how services actually work

    Expectations of management are very high and unrealistic and managers are undervalued
    Value sand behaviours are good. It's a shame those in more senior roles don't adhere to them
    Toxic culture

    Conseils à la direction

    Improve communication vastly
    Be consistent
    Senior leadership team need to be more viable on frontline and seek guidance form those who actually know services and what service users wants. A tokenism of user involvement exercise is meaningless
    Listen to feedback from surveys and act on it!

    J'ai travaillé chez Alzheimer's Society à temps partiel (Plus d'un an)

    Avantages

    supportive, helpful team and manager

    Inconvénients

    short term contracts, sometimes extended but too late (already got another job), lots of part time (yes good) jobs but poorly paid (can't manage on salary), irony that well paid jobs aren't offered as job share/ part time, losing good staff constantly because of pay/short contracts, have subsequently heard that 2 others from team have left and they have a new manager who is struggling - years of really good work about to disintegrate and come to nothing

    Conseils à la direction

    review contract lengths/pay, support managers better, make more well paid jobs available part time

    Je travaille chez Alzheimer's Society à plein temps (Plus d'un an)

    Avantages

    Dedicated and passionate staff.
    Flexible working - manage own hours, work from home when necessary.
    Managers understand balance of work & home life - eg working around school runs and sick children.
    Toil given for overtime.
    Excellent, high standard of training and plenty of opportunity for training and development.
    Society promotes career progression among staff.
    Pension and health benefits.

    Inconvénients

    Managers are low paid therefore poor or inexperienced managers are a problem. Good managers leave for higher paid jobs.
    Pay lower than other positions in similar charities (eg Marie Curie).
    Lack of understanding & support from managers due to them often being based in different locations to staff.
    Some of the office bases are in very poor conditions whilst others are much nicer.
    Staff expected to achieve the impossible - given unachievable targets with unacceptably low budgets, making failure inevitable.
    Lots of time wasted on badly managed and planned team meetings.

    Conseils à la direction

    Provide proper, comprehensive and worthwhile supervision to support your staff and make them feel that they matter.
    Plan team meetings to make the most of them.

    J'ai travaillé chez Alzheimer's Society en Contrat Permanent (Plus d'un an)

    Avantages

    Some colleagues were very helpful

    Inconvénients

    Poor management. The person I had been working for had recruited for the position 8 times in 7 years which I was not aware of until I started in the job. At first all was going well (although on my first day in the job she did not come into the office and I was inducted by another admin person - badly) Then after a couple of months I started to be treated less well. No guidance on some of the things I should have been doing. Yearly reports I knew nothing about and even sending out Christmas cards. I was berated for not doing these when I did not know that these needed to be done. To be honest, she was very unpopular in the office and people dreaded her coming into the office (when she graced us with her presence). She would come in like a bull in a china shop.

    I left in the end because it was impacting on my health too much and during my period of sick leave I had little contact with her so felt like I was being ignored and not cared for by the company.

    I would have complained to HR about my treatment but the HR department is very disjointed and they are very dismissive of any complaints and I knew that all the information would be sent back to my manager.

    Conseils à la direction

    Look after your staff and give them avenues to complain if they need to without the fear that it will be taken against you. And if a member of staff if off sick, make the effort to meet with them and help them back to work.

    Inconvénients

    Lack of management. Too many meetings that accomplish nothing and waste time.

    Conseils à la direction

    Listen to staff and stop being so risk averse

    Avantages

    Lots of people (both staff and volunteers) passionate about the cause and genuinely wanting to make a difference.

    Salary for most roles is competitive.

    Flexible working is encouraged.

    Inconvénients

    Trying to do too much. Unrealistic about what can be achieved and resource doesn't seem to be taken into account when planning.

    Not joined up - teams work in silos without communicating what they are working on with other teams. Unclear who is responsible for different areas of work and can take a lot of time to get things signed off.

    Some senior managers seem to have a personal agenda and are unwilling to listen to evidence or feedback.

    Change for the sake of change, often not coordinated and several restructures happening at the same time.

    Lack of opportunity to progress within the organisation and opportunities to gain experience/develop are unfairly distributed.

    Whilst I have listed flexible working is encouraged in pros above, it is not resourced appropriately and technology to enable employees to work remotely effectively and safely hasn't been invested in.

    Conseils à la direction

    Listen to feedback and be open to change if things aren't working - nothing seems to change despite negative feedback in annual survey.

    Role model the values and behaviours you expect others to demonstrate - many senior managers seem to think this doesn't apply to them.

    Learn from mistakes - seem to see the same issues in every project/initiative. Lack of planning, not enough time or resource, pointless meetings, unrealistic expectations etc.

    Do more to invest in and develop the talent you have - in the few years I've been here I've seen so many good people leave because of a lack of opportunity to progress and develop internally.

    Improve how poor performance is dealt with - often where this occurs it is not tackled appropriately (if at all) causing lots of issues and teams that are very difficult to work with.
