Love my job
Love working for NHS, but unfortunately minimum wage does not pay the bills if you are single and have no one else contributing.
The job is great as are the people including the GP’s I work for, but it is not a financially viable position.

Very low paid job
I love my job being able to help the public some times you get a good team to work with the pension is good you pay for your parking sadly you dont get a full break sadly you wont get the support you need from line managers or anyone else come to that and if you get assaulted by a agency nurse like I did dont be surprised as it will get brushed under the carpet. But good luck andenjoy

Great place to work
I took a role far beneath my capabilities when professional roles did not pan out, so it's hardly surprising that the salary is not that brilliant. Job security and advancement are not relevant, this is a port in a storm but I'm working with great people and really enjoying continual patient contact.

great team work
Work is fast paced and, frontline and working to timescales and accuracy is of upmost importance.
the holidays, sickness pay and pensions are all very good, but pay is average unless you work unsociable hours and weekends where you get enhancements and it makes your money up.
management seem very reactive and not proactive.

unions are a lot weaker than they used to be, with less stewards than before.

overall a great place to work, good team work, but not much advancement for admin staff should you wish to progress

I work in a&e very busy and fast. Every shift is different. Staff are lovely and support each other. Some days you get a good shift other days u have a bad shift or a upsetting shift especially if someone dies ie a child .
Pros
We are all one big family and look out for each other.
Cons
Salary not enough for what we are faced with we put our health and life at risk.

Difficult but rewarding
Two years spent as a junior doctor in the NHS. The pay for the first 2/3 years really isn't great, but the trajectory for earning is very good, with consultants/GP's making over 90K.

However, if you want a decent work-life balance, a feeling of being appropriately financially rewarded for your performance, and perks/bonuses, the NHS is not for you.

Disgrace of a place, staff are nice and well meaning, but supervisory and management are disgraceful with a culture of bullying and intimidation if you raise genuine concerns they are not interested and then see you as a troublemaker.
Pros
None
Cons
Extremely bad management

If you like stress. Earn a pitiful wage, it’s the perfect job for you!!!
Stressful, a lot of mileage, expected to work over your hour’s, poor wages for what you are expected to do. Never appreciated. Not the NHS, as it used to be. Higher they are, the more they are ticking a box,,,, to go further up the ladder.

Very stressful, understaffed most of the time. Salary not enough to meet the expenses of daily living for a family of four
General wards are under staffed most of the time.
Salary is not enough to meet the standards of living for a family.
Government and management should take efforts to recognise the hardwork of nurses who are underappreciated, ridiculed and targeted

As below
I have found that working for the NHS, very stressful, they did not train me, and expected me to know everything straight away.
Also the work environment is very competitive, and stressful, and have witnessed bullying most days.

The salary is OK but not great.

Great to work for
NHS is great to work for if you are flexible as the hours can be very daunting, however good teams to work alongside and management was excellent. Would go back if I was flexible enough.
