A stressful environment to work in. Feel like you are constantly being criticised and no praise for doing good work. Colleagues tend to be pretty good and the work can be interesting but you go gone feeling stressed and anxious to come in the next day. The pay isn’t great either.
Pros
Interesting work
Cons
Awful management

I'm currently employed by the trust following a recommendation from a university colleague who also worked here. I have found that the management within therapy services are very supportive, proactive with developing & progression towards the next band. I feel that the teams that I have worked with are very approachable & helpful. Everyone has made me feel welcome whether it be therapy staff or ward staff, they are all a big family with open arms during this difficult time.
Pros
Proactive teams
Cons
Space for breaks due to COVID

Amazing workforce and managers working trust are very proactive. The HR team are very experienced and helpful and the senior management team are very approachable. However, lacks option for work life balance and flexible working and office and building environment not the best. But would recommend as always willing to provide development opportunities! Managers within the trust are very educated and willing to do what is required, supportive matrons who go above and beyond for the department.
Pros
NHS benefits, fair, one site access, good culture
Cons
Limited parking, old buildings, high staff absence

Huge organisation which was constantly growing and employed just under 10000 staff. The HR department was dynamic with lots of opportunities to learn and grow. Supportive colleagues and management.

Managers not at all helpful, unable to clear my name following a mistake which I didn't make & was dismissed after many years of loyal service, made to feel like a criminal and have never really got over that experience. Anxiety and depression is managed but the experience has left scars.

Currently working on a busy specialist ward, no two days are the same, it is a privilege to nurse the patients and become a part of their journey. It is a challenge at times due to lack of resources namely staff.

This was, without a doubt, the worst job I have ever had. The management hadn't a clue what they were doing, and had allowed staff to form a clique where bigotry and laziness was allowed to thrive. I had the highest patient recruitment rate they had ever experienced, which led to my colleagues "gossiping". Dreadful lack of vision by the managers and an appalling laissez faire attitude across the staff.

Good place to be only 4 hour shifts per day unless your needed for overtime. Weekend work is on the wards and can be quite exhausting. Training is provided on the job

I found that there was little support for nurses who were new to the trust. The hospital has a blame culture and some of the staff do not think outside the box
