Guaranteed pa, that all...

Senior Physiotherapist (Former Employee)
London, England (UK)

ProsGuaranteed pay and employment means no worry.
Theoretically a guaranteed pension payable by the british government

ConsPoor pay and no bonus system so there is little point excelling. Excelling at your job does not make promotion likely, more if you are a bureaucrat. Lack of useful training for career advancement. Most training is Politically correct crap that covers the governments ass with health and safety etc!

Advice to Senior ManagementDon't just do what the government asks to gain promotion, do things to benefit the patients and your staff. The NHS has staff that are motivated to patients, but couldn't care for the majority of management. My last manager was certainly one who did a great job, but many before had been useless puppets.

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend
