Great place to develop important skills

Great place to develop important work skills needed for that career progression. Not a lot of staff so a lot of work pressure for available staff. Alright

Good NHS Trust

Very welcoming and supportive management team, offering great opportunities to grow and develop on all professional levels, despite the overwhelming pressure that the NHS is facing nowadays.Having a proper induction and training development created a solid base of professionalism for the rest of career as a professional nurse, providing the expected standards of care in any settings around the country.

Pros

Full implementation of the correct NHS standards

Cons

Long hours, not enough quality food supplies on site with substantial discounted rates for staff, while on duty

Very good place to work

By far the best job i have had. Great colleagues, amazing management, a decent salary. They cater to your needs and have monthly reviews to make sure you are okay mentally, happy with the role etc.

Was this review helpful?

The company do care about their staff but a tough working environment

one type of culture are majority of workers-clicky.Typical day report on patients take workload plan and deliver care. Interact for medication rounds to work out break relief. You need to be self sufficient and of strong character. Multiple demands. most enjoyable part of job caring for patients. hardest part of job demand exceeds supply.

Pros

Regular work.

Cons

long hours

A good Trust to work for

Imperial College Healthcare NHS Trust is a good place to work in. The trust do support and care for their staff. However, the wards can be very busy and the job can be rather stressful and physically and mentally demanding.

Pros

Staff canteen

Cons

Long hours

Impersonal, inflexible, cold management

I would not recommend working there. Old cramped wards, backwards management, inflexible working arrangements, cliques. Canteen was not good. .

Pros

Some nice colleagues

Cons

Old cramped wards

Fast paced.

Imperial is an excellent trust to work for. The clinical area I work in is very fast paced. Can be difficult to progress once you reach a certain point.

Pros

Well known trust

Cons

Progression can be limited when you reach a certain point

Disgraceful!

I worked for this organisation for 17 good years, in which I made steady career progression, I enjoyed being part of team in which I worked, there was always a feeling of camaraderie and we all worked hard to achieve the department's goals, often going above and beyond our remit.Things changed....when a new management structure was implemented, no one mattered anymore, it became a cold uncaring environment; The correct HR policies were not adhered too, how they got away with it, I don,t know! - a horrible episode then ensued, which I can only describe as mental torture.After a long period of sickness leave, ( the first in 17 years), I left the organisation.

Pros

Good friends

Cons

Indifference to peoples Health!!!

Demanding without being rewarding and recognising

No encouragement to growLooks like they want you to work and keep patients happy and not caring about your happiness. Not acting seriously on medication errors or patient abuse incidents. Demanding organisation (NHS ) without any recognisition or reward.

Pros

Multiple choices in terms of specialities and good options for working exposure

Cons

Favoritism, indifference for development although this is an NHS problem
Was this review helpful?

Stressful and lack of support

Continuously busy. Learned nothing. Senior management very poor. Culture in workplace is worsened by certain management supporting some not all staff. Favouritism. Lack of management and supervisor support.

Pros

Nothing

Cons

Have to work long hours and more than one persons job
