Nothing wrong with the interview
Tameside Home Treatment Team badly managed; micro-managing culture; too many chiefs, sneaky, blaming culture; everyone reporting on everyone else in order to protect themselves; Serious amount of brown-nosing going on there. No time for anyone who isn't nursing staff; if you have any other career options - use them.

Stressful working in psychiatry
The manager made our departments job very hard because she was a bad manager with obviously no managerial training. The work load was very high and grade and pay were reduced at the time I worked there.
The consultant I worked for was the only reason I stayed so long.

Typical NHS employer
Typical NHS employer, pressure from management to hit unrealistic targets set by government.
Pressure from patients who have become less likely to deal with small illnesses themselves.

Higher management not understanding how things work on the ground.

Great place to work
I have children and have very supportive managers who are generous with flexibility.
Staff are great and the job is very rewarding. I have learnt so much here. If you can get on the bank I would advise it to get your foot in the door.

Nhs is a good starting point
Nhs is a good starting point to gain experience. However as private sectors are now outbidding Nhs there are fewer opportunities to develop within your career.

Not a job for the long haul
You have your good and bad days....very bad days sometimes.All depends on the staff you work with.Split shifts are a nightmare as there is no shift pattern so home life really suffers.Management are young, some are immature with a point to prove.a few amazing staff you get the pleasure to work with.Several patients play the system which is VERY frustrating,back time and again.

Horrid place
Worked as in domestic within trust HQ, people within the building were fine but there is a small handful, that think domestics can do nothing more than clean. If your face doesn’t fit in this place. Sorry but they make working life horruid. Got absolutely no support whatsoever off management or HR when had problem. Not the greatest place to work.
Pros
Some great people
Cons
Management are unsupportive.

Nepotism and if your face doesn't fit culture.
Worked for Pennine in community. Was employed by a caring manager however, following reconfiguration found myself pushed out. Everyone seemed to know each other for years and I was relatively new. As an example employees would socialise with senior managers and suddenly they would be in charge of projects. The staff who did not socialise would be ignored. So if you want to work with people who are stuck in their. ways and bullies, get a job at Pennine.
Pros
salary
Cons
Nepotism and culture of bullying.

Avoid, this trust is renowned for the worst management culture going, rep well earned.
There are a couple of good managers, 2 I can think of now work in Oldham IAPT, however the terminally bad bully management culture prevents them from trying to create a positive culture. There are many very talented therapists passing through the various IAPT doors, but none are ever allowed to grow professionally or sought for their insight to therapeutic issues. IAPT's in general are really hard places to work due to the climate created by the government, but pennine is a particularly bad one, especially the parts that have been sold off, avoid like the plague. If u r desperate to get some initial experience, then go there, but with a plan to get out as soon as you can. Some great colleagues, appalling culture managing it, which is acknowledged in parts of the NHS outside of it.
Pros
They can't keep staff long so they are always recruiting.
Cons
Horrible place to work.

Horrible place to work
I worked in a dark, cold, horrible office with awful colleagues and dreaded going in everyday. Gossip was disgusting for such a small office. Bored, middle aged women with nothing better to talk about. Management were not very supportive and spent all day complaining about personal health issues which made the working environment unbearable . Personally, i do not think enough training was provided and the wages were shocking. Signed off work by the doctor due to stress and anxiety and never returned... thank god!
Pros
Leaving
Cons
Everything
