Good place to work, but room for improvement
Managers need to apply what they learn in theory and put it into practice. Sometimes the initiatives come across as tick box exercises. My experience has been mixed and I feel certain people are oblivious to their actions and will never change meaning things will only improve once they retire. On the plus side, there's a good work life balance, but this will very much depend on who manages you. Technologically the Trust needs to step up. We're very paper based. The NHS had an expectation for you to work above and beyond your contacted hours of work.
Pros
Flexible working.
Cons
Expectation to work above and beyond contacted hours. Job satisfaction dependent on who manages you.

Bad management
Good place to work if your face fits and you don’t have any disabilities eg dyslexia!!! Management and senior staff are bullies. Management only believe the supervisors or team leaders but if your below that you haven’t got a chance of being believed. Made my working life very unpleasant up until the Day I left.
No proper training in the clinic I was in as long as you could hit the vain nothing else mattered. No patient care in that clinic what so ever. Supervisors believe it’s the job of the volunteer’s to help the patient not yours.
Pros
Good pay
Cons
Everything

Poor leadership and treatment of staff
Since starting in this role, I have been disappointed. Poor choice in leadership has been one of the main issues. Failure to follow their own policies in regards to recruitment and retainment has left me feeling undervalued and is prompting me to job search.
The best part of the job is the patients that you support.

modern infrastructure but challenging at present
In comparison to other NHS trusts this has a modern infrastructure, but due to recent events there is little confidence in higher management. I am sure with time this will improve and the Trust will repair its reputation.
The service it delivers is outstanding to all childrens and mental health service patients.

Pleasant place to work
The team in which I work are a close-knit bunch who look out for each others. My direct managers are easy going and ensure that all staff are well listened to and help tremendously with work-life balance. Although I have no dealings with upper management, I have no criticism to make of them.
Pros
NHS Pension Scheme, Agenda for Change Payscales
Cons
Possibilities for advancement can be somewhat limiting
