Shocking culture of bullying and intimidation from directors and senior managers and nothing is ever done about it. Freedom to speak up doesn't work. Cost cutting left right and centre and nobody cares about staff.
Pros
Helping patients
Cons
Directors and managers behaviours

Terrible to work for no family/work balance and a real bullying culture that everybody knows about and nothing ever gets done about it. The only good thing is the salary but on balance with everything else its not worth it.
Pros
discounted meals in canteen
Cons
too many to list

Having worked for the NHS for the first 6 years of my employment, it was a good step in the right direction in terms of building my confidence and social skills.

The trust is ok to work for.Unfortunately the cut backs they make are,in my opinion,are in the wrong places,which makes the frontline staff's jobs very difficult.The training you get is good,but when the courses expire the management don't rush to renew them.The most difficult part of the job is having to use poor quality products to clean with.
Pros
Good wages
Cons
poor communication from management

Why I ever left the nhs is beyond me looking back at it.
The job was fun and at times felt rewarding, most of the people I met and worked with were down to earth and always willing to lend a hand of offer some friendly advice.

It was also the most secure I've ever felt at a workplace.

I was here for a week during February 2014 for work experience and was asked to come back for Summer 2014. I didn't receive any pay for this duration, but I took away a lot of new skills and confidence.

This is a secure and ideal job for anyone looking to work in an office environment, however as someone who is only 22 years old, I feel that I am a little young to be here. It has a variety of job roles available to appeal to any nature of person.

Working in the NHS in the current climate demands the delivery of more for less which makes each day a challenge. The financial constraints affect everyone and the job security that was once there has gone.
The Trust however do their best to provide a supportive working environment and recognise the importance of staff wellbeing and a good work - life balance.
Pros
Friendly environment
Cons
Demanding

On a typical day at work I collect my viist list priortise my work load, have a quick chat with my work colleagues and then start my work
which is mainly lone working.the hardest part of the job is dealing with conflict. The most enjoyable part of the job is meeting new clients and interaction with clients.

Job title - Customer Services Senior Clerical Officer
Job location - Torbay Pharmaceuticals in Paignton.

Pay is very good with regular increments.

Management varies from really helpful and supportive to very poor, no time for employees.

Busy periods and tight deadlines were the hardest part of the job but if you are like me and enjoy a challenge this wouldn't be a problem.

Best part of the job was getting good results and praise into the customer services dept.
Pros
great work colleagues

Had to carry out various different jobs from vision test to setting up theatres. Learned to use a range of different medical devices and techniques to provide the highest standard of care for patients. Management was very supportive and pushed you to further your development. Was a very big team with a lot of different personalities great team. Dealing with the volume of patients coming through the department, the most enjoyable part was seeing the satisfaction on patients faces when the eye issues were resolved.
