    Mencap Employee, May 2022

  • Best thing

    My co-workers are amazing

    Worst thing

    The company doesn’t care about employees, all managerial staff have never had experience in care so don’t understand what we have to go through day to day. Mencap make it hard to work out take home pay on purpose, claim to be a charity but pay their CEO hundreds of thousands while not paying staff the real living wage. Disgusting company, cover up literal crimes so they don’t have to fire managers.
