Best and worst decision of my life
No help from management, always understaffed NEVER got a break, over run with agency, no structure, glad of the experience tho. Made us all redundant

The management was supportive and the so was the team. The days varied from easy to challenging but when you saw you made a difference in someone life it was a made up for the challenging days.

I loved this job , had a great team of GP Liaison representatives and a great boss, I learned a lot about strategic management and teamwork ,the management team were effective and efficient , hardest thing was the travelling to London etc. The best boss I ever had , fun supportive and experienced helped me a lot .
Prosgreat work ethic from team
Working for priory group the company is not good, you’re just another number to them. the residents are only see ££ signs to them. I was working at one of priory homes for about 2 years , worked through lockdown when it first come about. Them when lockdown ease up in August as a thank for everything the staff did, they closed the home down and made us redundant. The home was closed less than 2 months later. Every member of staff at that home felt like a fool having come together through the pandemic and work hard for the residents to be laid off like that was like a slap in the face. With no thanks to show for it . The management skills of all departments at priory group are very poor as well. So many more things I can say about priory group but I don’t think I have enough space to write it on. (The staff at the home i worked at was like any other family some you love some you don’t but at the end of the day we are one big happy dysfunctional family.)
ProsWill make some friends for life
ConsLack of support to staff/ staff not treated like human beings/ not enough pay for 12 long hours
It’s a nice place to work
The wards are run well and the training is really good and supportive staff are fed well and if u ever want to do a training course the hospital will let you which is really good

I have a recently diagnosed condition and received very little support from the management team apart from one deputy manager who was lovely. The work patterns were inconsistent and hardly any weekends off
ProsGood group of colleagues
ConsManagement and work culture

It's hard work but quite rewarding seeing the young people improving on their mental health and moving back into the community.
Great food and able to travel to different places when supporting young people on activities and contacts.
Prosexcellent experience within the roles
Always the same
This company never changes, management are unorganised, they take on much more than they can handle. No support for staff well-being, all they care about is the money they are bringing in from the young people.

Run!! Get out of there!!
Management make up vicious lies about you, all management pally up. The management will do everything in their power to break you down and make you believe you are worthless. They do not pay correctly, every month this is an issue. There is no appreciation towards staff members for the help and support they give. You will have no life, your family don’t matter, just priory. The minute you raise any issues to the manager you are seen as a problematic person and this is when all the vicious lies and bullying starts. This place will ruin your mental health. If you want a career in care, please do not apply for this company, it will ruin you and put you off care. Management are a bunch of bullies who allow neglect to happen within the work place, all they care about is money, not their residents nor support workers. They have no duty of care, as long as they’re getting paid you are expected to get on with things no matter how bad the situation is. This is a corrupt company & they are part of a sick & horrible click. They let staff abuse service users, when you report it, nothing gets done about it, but YOU are then pulled into the office and made to feel like you’ve done something wrong. Please do not apply for this company. It will ruin you. RUN A MILE & DONT EVER LOOK BACK!!!
