I worked as a research scientist. A typical day involved analysing large data sets to identify pertinent information. I was given free rein to work alone but also my supervisors provided help and advice whenever it was required.

Love my job, fast paced, great colleagues, been in my job 13 years. My position makes me the first contact for callers. No day is the same, each day brings different situations that involve life and death. A very rewarding job!

The job culture and environment wasn't pleasant.
Lack of support when needed and when asked for new and unfamiliar tasks.

Very stressful at times.

I learned how to multi-task but they wouldn't allow me to work in my own pace because they are very busy every day. They expected me to handle everything at once and I couldn't do it. so I quit.

I enjoy this role, where I work in a fantastic atmosphere with a wonderful staff, and carry out tasks for them, as well as monitoring devices and filling in information that can be used for subsequent dissertations.

Fast paced and productive environment to work in. Management is usually very understanding and the work-life balance is good. Multiple IT systems are used throughout the Trust but you are given proper IT training before using them.

I thoroughly enjoyed my time at Guy’s. I worked for an extremely professional and very nice boss who although, had a very busy schedule, always found time for me, if required. I would wholly recommend working for this hospital.

I thoroughly enjoyed working at Guys , what a wonderful trust with amazing people . I enjoyed going to work every day .
The only reason I left was due to the commute. I would definitely recommend working for such a positive and hardworking NHS trust.

I work in a community team where some of the colleagues are loud, confrontational, hateful and hate peace.

The physical environment is also awful. The roof leaks badly. When it rains the water comes down and buckets and pails have to be strategically placed. There are ceiling tiles that are missing.


The trust has moved towards hot desking.

Head of nursing is only interested in keeping her banding and her job.


I feel like I don't belong. Can't wait to leave!
Pros
Large Trust. Good number of jobs. More choice in moving jobs.
Cons
Hot desking. Too many changes in a short space of time and effect on staff not taken into account.
