Hampstead is a fast paced environment where high quality care is given. You need to be a bit thick skinned and confident in your abilities but there are still plenty of opportunities to learn and improve skills and knowledge. Very interesting and varied caseload. Apart from the building itself there are excellent facilities and equipment. It's a shame management fail to realise employees worth and have lost multiple great staff members because of this, usually overpay related issues
Pros
Interesting varied caseload, lovely colleagues, excellent quality of care
Cons
Stressful at times, too busy for building, No pay structure

Some members of staff are lovely to work with, some on the other hand aren’t as friendly. Staff are overworked and not paid enough for the level of care that they give. It can be very mentally draining at times. Need more members of staff to balance work loads. Facilities were nice (mostly lab) although the staff area could have more of an upgrade.
Pros
Discounted vet fees, friendly colleagues, some of the most caring nurses you’ll meet.
Cons
Very busy, incompetent staff

This is a place where you get to learn a lot in a short period of time, which can be intimidating, but also a lot of fun if you like thinking on your feet. Co-workers are great, providing you with support if/when necessary. The hardest part of the job, as a relatively new employee, is the high standard of care they provide to the clients, and being able to match that. Especially with the high case loads from London Veterinary Specialist across the road and the high intensity of the emergency and critical care cases. Most enjoyable part of the job is the great opportunity to learn so much every day. No day is the same.
Pros
Learning opportunities
Cons
