I've worked for NHS in England for 15 years and now work for NHS in Scotland. They are a great employer to work for, lots of benefits and you meet many people from a a variety of backgrounds. The staff are professional in their job, despite the pressures they all face. Joining the NHS is like joining a new family.
Pros
Pension, Good Pay, Sick & Holiday Pay, flexibility in hours. Access to gain qualifications.
Cons
Short staffed at times, no help with childcare.

Job culture
Highly stressful working in healthcare and you are never appreciated or thanked for what you do. You are paid pennies and expected to be grateful. You are constantly under stress and have too much to do to fit into a 12 hour shift - then you have to stay later and catch up on notes etc and you don't get paid for staying any later! It is an awful career I would not recommend it to anyone. You are simply a number and a part of the cog working for the NHS and no one in the higher places of the organisation give a bleep about you.
Pros
Nothing
Cons
Long hours, always tired, paid pennies
