Huge organisation which was constantly growing and employed just under 10000 staff. The HR department was dynamic with lots of opportunities to learn and grow. Supportive colleagues and management.

Amazing workforce and managers working trust are very proactive. The HR team are very experienced and helpful and the senior management team are very approachable. However, lacks option for work life balance and flexible working and office and building environment not the best. But would recommend as always willing to provide development opportunities! Managers within the trust are very educated and willing to do what is required, supportive matrons who go above and beyond for the department.
Pros
NHS benefits, fair, one site access, good culture
Cons
Limited parking, old buildings, high staff absence

Managers not at all helpful, unable to clear my name following a mistake which I didn't make & was dismissed after many years of loyal service, made to feel like a criminal and have never really got over that experience. Anxiety and depression is managed but the experience has left scars.

Currently working on a busy specialist ward, no two days are the same, it is a privilege to nurse the patients and become a part of their journey. It is a challenge at times due to lack of resources namely staff.

This was, without a doubt, the worst job I have ever had. The management hadn't a clue what they were doing, and had allowed staff to form a clique where bigotry and laziness was allowed to thrive. I had the highest patient recruitment rate they had ever experienced, which led to my colleagues "gossiping". Dreadful lack of vision by the managers and an appalling laissez faire attitude across the staff.

Good place to be only 4 hour shifts per day unless your needed for overtime. Weekend work is on the wards and can be quite exhausting. Training is provided on the job

I found that there was little support for nurses who were new to the trust. The hospital has a blame culture and some of the staff do not think outside the box

Structured
I learned how Doctors and Dentists are recruited, the payscale and incriments for both doctors and dentists

management it all the departments I worked were well organised and efficient

The culture overall was one of comradery

Due to the nature of my roles the repeatativness could render me bored and restless as there was very little interaction with others outside of those who were based in the office

I enjoyed most being able to bond with those I worked with and being offiered constant support whilst learning my role.

Receptionist on ward at New Cross Hospital.
Good teamwork on the ward, issue with management listening to staff problems/issues.

Hardest part of the job being dealing with bereaved relatives.

Most enjoyable part of the job for me would be seeing a patient come onto the ward in a poorly state and leave the unit to be discharged onto a ward or home.
Pros
NHS Discount, Pension Scheme, Working conditions.
Cons
Certain Policies, Emotional Upheaval
