Like most jobs working for this trust has its up and downs. I think you need to be a certain type of person to work for this trust. The benefits are great, good pay, good holiday and pension. The people not so great. I would say management have no clue what they are doing. If you want to get anywhere, the best thing to do would be to brown nose. Not something I am fond of doing myself. It's very political, very gossipy and too many fingers in the pie. Patients I have dealt with personally have been lovely. However, I would say Pathology is a lovely department, with really lovely and friendly staff.

I worked there for just over a year. As a assistant healthcare scientist in the lab. Supervisors were rude, power hungry and would be the cause for most problems. Supervisors wouldn’t work, would treat members of staff like they were children. They would follow you to the toilets to ask where you was going, you weren’t allowed to leave the lab even if there were sufficient staff available. Staff would talk behind your back and management would not listen or help if you raised a problem. Being treated like a child in the work place is not the experience I wanted. Not being able to get a drink or other human rights, are stripped when you enter the environment. Staff turn around is constant as so many people leave the role quickly, some stay forever. These are the ones who cause problems. Not recommended
Pros
None
Cons
Shift work, unorganised, supervisors on a power trip

A typical day at work can be satisfactory. Workplace culture not so good. The hardest part of my job is constantly justifying myself being blamed for things that weren't my fault I cant say I enjoy working in this role/department. What I can do is reflect on the positives. The previous roles/departments I worked in have been really good I thoroughly enjoyed working for the NHS prior to the present dept. It all depends on who you work with, you could enjoy the job but someone could ruin that and make your work life a misery.
Pros
annual Leave benefits
Cons
I would say nothing prior to the present - Bullying & Harrasment
