Not great

Indeed featured review

The most useful review selected by Indeed
Way to top heavy in staff with no way near enough people to be hands on with the jobs. Atmosphere isn’t the best and can be a lot of unprofessionalism.

Busy but supportive environment

Overall a good place to work. Training could be better. Managers not always Receptive to change. Busy and fast paced but management were approachable.

Horrible place to work.

The inpatient pharmacy at stepping Hill is the worst job I've ever worked in.The atmosphere is clicky and hostile when you challenge things. People are so stressed that they snap at the lightest of things. Management was poor aside from two good people trying their best. Doing the work of 3 people for less than 20k do not work here!


Some friendly people.


Low wages, poor management.

Great opportunities and friendly team

Small hospital with a close knit team. Although NHS work can be challenging, the Trust seems to value its staff and people are generally happy and supportive

Varied workload, great team and always have a laugh at some point in the day

The EBME team is constantly growing, mainly young workforce whose strengths are working as a team, helping each other and training on equipment frequently. Our Team lifts spirits - we often have lunch together and our Manager supports his staff and welcomes ideas from all the team


Very friendly and helpful workforce


Parking is a pain

Okay but not much free time and stressful

Very busy and sometimes stressful, especially when you are doing 2+ people's workload. Too much tasks on checklist/worklist out of hours, lone working most of the time. Although you are on shifts, you don't have as much rest days and free time in-between and overall. Shifts are long.Most of all- the IT systems and buildings are outdated. A few incidents and errors resulted from the use of paper logs. Limited working space.


Good wage


long hours, extremely tiring, too much to do at once from one person

Terrible place to work. Bullying mentality is really bad.

No scope to improve. Made to feel completely undervalued and humiliated. No interest in you as a person and not interested in your problems. Terrible place to work.

Overworked and underpaid

Very stressful, very understaffed, bad management paid less than peers at other trusts.Not much opportunity for progression, expected to take on workload above your pay station without any remuneration

Got me by the short and curlies!

in my particular role, I/we are not included in team briefs, communications or decisions made by/for the department.we have NO work life balance, we have suggested Proven ammendments to the current working shift pattern to tie in with other departments within the trust, yet because the head of department doesn't want to make the changes we can not even trial it. Think long and hard before applying for a position with this emoyer!

Not really fun

Short staffed, underpaid not appreciated and not valued as part of the team. There is no structure in place to help the new employees get settled in.

The NHS is over rated.

Worked as a Registered Nurse.Regular poor staffing levels and shortage of good staff.Senior Nurse Matrons always ready for good social media friendly photo opportunities to show how 'kind' and 'supportive' they are.Top heavy with narcissists.


Some excellent friendly and hard working health care assistants and staff nurses.


Staff shortages resulting in no proper breaks, Staff shortages resulting in staying behind to finish off paperwork, Senior nurses then suggest this is due to poor time management, Not easy to time manage when doing double workloads

Stockport is a great place to work

I have worked at Stockport over 15 years , I have great job satisfaction and work with amazing staff every day. I have been able to develop, make service changes and proactively improve my patients care.

This department (ECG) was a depressing environment

I worked at SHH 3 times ECG worst dept EVER for the last 3 years. Micro managed. Management in medicine had bullying attitudes. I personally received No support.Management support the staff who want to stay on the sickthe longest. Loved my role but worked with a lot of lazy staff members who either didnt pull their weight or were constantly on the sick. However there are a few good workers within the department that have worked there many years and are not appreciated by the management.




changed hours of shifts 5 mins notice by my manager

Micromanaging managers

There are some great, dedicated, hard-working people here. I believe the service users are well cared for. Some of the management is rotten to the core. A culture of micromanaging and humiliating people seems to be acceptable. The bully and their sycophants is a working model. The senior management need to look into this.


If you're lucky you might get some good co-workers


Long hours. Run down buildings.

Good if management support you

Can be very very busy , not always time to get support and learning new skills can be challenging due to work load, hopefully improvements can be made when covid rates drop .


Friendly staff


Busy all the time
