No management guidance
Sadly the area that I worked in did not provide any support. Management is very poor. Staff are treated very differently and not fairly.

Lack of vision for this department
Pros
Could be amazing
Cons
No consistency in support

Fantastic
Working in Switchboard is a very friendly and professional place to work. Everyone is so patient and friendly and help every step of the way.

I can honestly say, it is the best job that I have ever had.

Bullying Culture
I worked on the main switchboard of the hospital. There is far too many cheifs in there. The majority of the staff were spiteful, condescending and bully's. The manageress is very nasty and does not help when you are struggling, she allows her best friend who also works there to dress you down in front of the whole office. She also does not support you when you are ill. All in all its an awful place to be.

Rotten apple
The royal treat there nurses like rubbish. They talk good talk about being a great team but everyone is stressed out just trying to get the job done and stay out of trouble. The reason they are stressed out is that there is a massive fear culture you can almost taste it nurses know that if some patient or there idiot family members turn up and complain about something, the nurses working in impossible situations sweating it out on the wards will be blamed. The matrons and senior matrons run the wards they don’t do leadership and never stand up for there nurses who get told off by HR and made depressed. They are good at making sure there mates or family get the next promotion number of people related in some way is stupid.

Horrible
Everybody is related in some way or another, the office I worked in consisted of the Manager and her daughter, sister in law, son and son in law. All of which were favoured when it came to the rotas.

On reflection surprised I actually got the job!


The job itself was fab, but very poor management and very clicky.
Pros
Annual leave entitlement
Cons
Poor management

Place has a bullying culture and you end up depressed and feeling worthless.
Managers couldnt manage their way out of a paper bag.

God awful people who are two faced. I called it the snake den, but its more like 1984.
Pros
Nonet
Cons
Everything

Secure work but very stressful
Having worked here for 3 years I am now looking for a new job as I find working here stressful and physically draining. Management aren't supportive and they think a Christmas bonus of a £3 cafe voucher acceptable.
Pros
7 weeks holiday
Cons
Long hours, stressful

Ok for older generation
No good for young people wanting to get on. All good at giving out training and getting you the qualifications but then it's a case of wait for someone to die in order to get promotion.
