I worked at UK National Health Service full-time (more than an year)

Pros

Well structured graduate scheme for scientists.
Lots of training/education.
Opportunity to use scientific skills to improve healthcare.
Good pension.
Work life balance is generally good but studying often has to be done out of hours.

Cons

Some work can be repetitive/tedious (e.g. quality assurance tests).
Majority of jobs for physicists are in radiotherapy, so getting jobs in other fields once you have qualified can be tricky.

    Former Employee - Journalist (content team) in London, England (UK)

    I worked at UK National Health Service full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    The people. The content team is a great group of journalists, most with excellent skills, enthusiasm and commitment to the project. Everyone worked well together but we had our share of laughs too.

    Cons

    The office is a 70s throwback with swathes of ancient wooden desks and filing cabinets. When I was there most of us didn't have a window view or much natural light. Elephant & Castle is a grey, drab area with limited lunch options (and no healthy ones).

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Our surroundings can uplift, inspire and motivate us or be grey and demotivating. This office space needs work!

    Former Employee - Surgical Registrar in London, England (UK)

    I worked at UK National Health Service full-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    As a doctor I was doing the job of my dreams so the NHS allowed me that avenue.

    Cons

    My salary decreased for last 3 years. I was unable to take my annual leave as the managers or bosses would decline it. Management prioritise cutting costs and corners for quick wins rather than increasing efficiency safely for the long run.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Change your priorities. You are looking at the wrong picture.
