High pressure, High stress, fast paced work.
Patient Service (Current Employee) – Gillingham – 14 April 2015
While I learnt a lot of valuable skills in my time, most opportunities at job advancement are reserved for 'favoured' employees, rather than skilled employees. A typical day consisted of being relentlessly bombarded by rude impatient staff members and being asked to fix things beyond your control.
Management is poor and disorganised, the phrase too many chiefs not enough Indians comes to mind and progress is often halted by in house politics and bickering.
There is very little engagement between workers and management, meaning entire processes, standards, environments and more a change, dropped and tacked on at the drop of a penny.
In spite of all this the team I work with are supportive, friendly and always put on a brave face, bringing laughter into what would otherwise be a miserable working life.
Non managerial staff are friendly, helpful and supportive.
Long hours, poor working environment, poor management, poor continuity, Lack of support, regular unpaid overtime expected, unreliable payroll department, poor organisation.
