I have been working at UK National Health Service

ProsIn some cases a feeling of satisfaction when doing the job well.
variety of work if in a large pathology epartment.

ConsThe hours,

Excelling at your job does not make promotion likely, more if you are… Advice to Senior Management: Don't just do what the government asks to gain promotion, do things to benefit the patients and your staff.
