Hard work
The NHS used to be a workplace to be valued. Not any more. To work in this organisation you have to be able to cope with abusive and aggressive behaviour on a daily basis. Poorly paid and very stressful
Pros
None
Cons
Abusive behaviour

A good company to work for
A good place to work but after 25 years I'm ready for less hours and a change of job.
A typical day would start at 7.00am to pick up on early starting staff but some times my working day would not finish until 8.00pm.

The hardest part of my job was trying to get hold of staff that needed training updates due to the nature of their busy work schedule.

The management is sound and just leave me to get on with my job to the best of my ability. I could speak to them with confidence if there was anything I was unsure of.

The most enjoyable part of my job is mixing with different staff in different areas of the Hospital.
Pros
Flexible working opportunities
Cons
Long Hours

Not bad
I only did work experience here, but from what you could see by the way certain members of staff were treated who was more qualified and who was on the highest pays.

Productive and Enjoyable
It is a very busy and on the go position. There is no let up it is busy constantly which I enjoy. I have learnt a lot of new systems on computer such as IPM, ICE, Evolve, Galaxy. My co-workers are helpful and we all get on very well, helping each other out and being a source for feedback, sounding boards etc. The most enjoyable part of the job is the different and varied jobs that transpire as each day goes on and therefore you could never get bored.
Pros
Varied work load, hours that suit, prioritising your own workload
Cons
very hectic at times, frustration when theatres are cancelled especially at short notice

Horrible work environment
I worked within the HR department and have never experienced a worse working environment in my career. Zero training or engagement from any management. On day one I was shown to a grotty desk and broken chair and told where the toilet was (I can only assume that that was my induction). Managers who seem to spend most of their time hiding behind their office doors and occasionally darting into the central kitchen avoiding eye contact with any of the team. Turnover is high and the environment is miserable, windows covered up, dirty desks and yellowing memos on notice boards that I imagine have been there 700 years and never read. Project Managers who struggle to communicate, maintain eye contact or conduct a meeting in time or with any purpose. Your opinion will never be requested and your feedback will fall on deaf ears. One week my only task was to 'just read over last week's emails'. It was a huge relief to leave, think very carefully before considering the BTHT HR department as an option.
Pros
None
Cons
No colleague engagement, no defined roles, no communication

A very forward thinking trust to work for
My experience at Bradford has been very positive. Bradford emphasizes a lot on communication at a level I have never seen in another trust before. I definitely learned how communication aided the project from day one.
Management has a very positive attitude towards the project i was involved in. I was made a team player at every step of the project.

As a senior analyst i enjoyed working with secondment staff in the project. I was able to train and assist my colleagues at work using my experience.

The hardest part of the job was to engage with stakeholders who had a big challenge on their hand due to shortage of staff. this meant they could not attend some of the sessions we organised once a week. The way i got around this was to take the sessions to them on the ward.

I enjoyed engaging with staff e.g doctors, nurses and others. I felt comfortable with this part of the job as i used to be a nurse myself.
Pros
exciting project to be part of
Cons
long distance from home

Overall it is a goo working environment.
It is rotating shift day & night. I learned a lot in this unit professionally.
Management is flexible most of the time.We have a good teamwork

in the unit though its busy.ICU is a heavy unit & unpredictable but because of the good working relationship between staffs the workload became lighter.It is a multicultural hospital the hardest part of the job is miscommunication especially when there is no interpreter for the patient(unable to speak english),it is frustrating.

And dealing with bereaving family. I enjoyed working in this unit.
Pros
long breaks, flexible hours
Cons
underpaid
