Coworkers professional and passionate, management incompetent don’t walk the talk.

Launch housing as an organisation that consistently ignores what is most important and should be at the centre of all they do….their clients. No proactive communication or consultation is done, the clients’ perspective is not considered when decisions are made. Launch housing calls telling people what has been already decided by management, “consultation “ If you are passionate about working with people who are homeless or who have experienced homelessness and have a high tolerance for trauma and incompetent managers, this is the job for you.

Pros

Good at making posters

Cons

Lack understanding and compliance re covid safety.

High turn over of staff and poor career growth prospect.

Super busy; no work-life balance. Staff are not treated as equal, management does not understand the hard work involved in managing clients with complex needs. Bias underperformance perceptions - managers often place any individual into an out-group whilst consciously seek affirmation of their own perception setting staff to fail. One-sided HR encourages this behaviour. Senior roles allocated to friends/families of managers; challenging this opinion will result in underperformance investigations of the individual.Discouragement of generational diversity organisation prefers to employ the younger generation. Barriers in creating diversity and inclusion in the organisations are not recognised, therefore not addressed. Most enjoyable - hearing success stories of our clients. The hardest part of the job - lack of managers support and accountability

Pros

Working with diverse clients and helping them to find and sustain housing.

Cons

Low wages high expectation, no recognition.

Poor recruiting process

Recruitment is sloppy with recruitment personnel not replying in a timely manner to requested information from applicants. Post interview, I was asked for another referee which I supplied but I heard nothing back. It undermines the standard of professionalism - which applicants are required to uphold. I had secured a professional referee ( & THEIR valuable time) & Heard- no reply /Launch Housing.

Pros

None actually

Cons

Sloppy/ Unprofessional

Loved it!

I agree that in some instances different sites can be 'clicky' and some managers could do with some further people skills. I also agree that at times there is quite a bit of nepotism, again dependant on the site. My time at Launch Housing was amazing, it opened up so many opportunities and provided a good work life balance. Pay was definitely comparable and the Org. Were taking measures to improve the work life balance and culture even more.Coordinator
