Indeed featured review

The most useful review selected by Indeed
Can only comment on RHCH. Some managers were dreadful and disorganised. Some colleagues helpful, others I'm glad never to see again. Agree with prev. comment that overall an OK place to work but not exciting. The staff Covid testing arrangements is one thing this Trust has got right.

Shambles

Poor place to work, staff badly cared for by very poor management. They play at doing things right but everything is just a tick box exercise. NHS is a good organisation but each trust is autonomous and each department has autonomy within the trusts. Depressing!

Pros

Nhs

Cons

Salary is low.

Overall an ok place to work but not exciting. Management is awful- they don’t care about employees as long as you do your job. Appraisal ls and 1:1 are just tick box exercises. No support/encouragement for career progression. Communication is non existent. Wouldn’t recommend unless you are waiting for retirement or want enjoy a slow routine workday.

Pros

Colleagues are great to work with

Cons

Management is awful

Choose a different dept

Most departments are great to work in. Children’s unit is different. It’s insular you fit in or you don’t. Mindset is do what you’re told, you cant contribute to change things. Constant questioning from managers if you do something for another member of staff!

Pros

Salary

Cons

Can’t be proactive, questioned if do a good deed for the nursing staff.

Poor Management

Great colleagues, but really poor senior management make life very difficult. Sadly could not recommend working here as a scientist. As elsewhere in the NHS it is very understaffed.

Trust where your colleagues are like your family

The department in which i worked was very close knit, with a wide variation of characters and specialties, from junior staff up to management. Safe and secure environment to work in and plenty of support from various levels of management.

Rewarding job but challanging at times.

A very rewarding job but also an emotionally challanging. Higher management needs improvement and a better knowledge of the role, as they only focus on money and not want is needed to do the job.

Pros

Pay, Helping others, Rewarding

Cons

Higher management, more staff needed within the team. Shift work.
