    Average employer.

    Anonymous Employee (Former Employee) Glasgow, Scotland (UK)

    ProsAverage employer, not very progressive, but also not too demanding. This means that there are people who just turn up every day and get paid. Unfortunately, the people who do a good job also just get paid.

    ConsNo real incentive to do an excellent job. Sometimes a real institutional negative culture. It does grind you down after a while. Not too many dynamic people around.

    Advice to Senior ManagementBe more aware of what your staff are doing. Reward the achievers, and dump the work shy.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend

    Awful! ..put it all back in the box!

    IT Specialist (Current Employee) Glasgow, Scotland (UK)

    ProsAt best, most people are people focused and care about the NHS, at worst, the internal politics is like wading through treacle and when nurses and GP's should be putting bandages on people, they are all in IT meetings and laying down the law. If only they themselves conformed to the concept of the patient driven service.

    ConsWhere do you start, a lot of people want to work in the NHS as they are dependent on others and for some reason go off sick and awful lot. The concept of the patient driven service is a myth and the government lets down people very badly with its post code lottery.

    Advice to Senior ManagementUnderstand the longitude and latitude of your own roles....you do not know anything about computing and and you may be talking with Masters an Phd qualified individuals with 20 years + experience. Specify your requirements and go do your own job. Harsh, but true.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company

    Consultant by name, drone by nature.

    Consultant (Current Employee) Glasgow, Scotland (UK)

    ProsStability. Stability. Stability. Stability. Stability.

    ConsHealthcare based on quantity, not quality.

    Advice to Senior ManagementSpend some time shadowing employees so that you actually understand what they do for a living, talk with them, listen to them, heed them.

    A Company unable to view full potential of it's employees.

    Scrub Nurse (Former Employee)

    Pros- Will provide you with extra hours and overtime should you want them
    - Helps people in the community
    - Great benefits
    - Great Team Work Ethic in lower level staff

    Cons- No acceptance from Senior managers that Numbers aren't key
    - Hard and Long Hours
    - Little and No Support from Senior teams, only from your close workmates

    Advice to Senior ManagementRethink your strategies and treat patients and staff with respect. Mutual respect could achieve numbers like you obviously want; where your current workings won't.

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend

    Typical of the NHS

    House Officer (Current Employee) Glasgow, Scotland (UK)

    ProsGood environment to work in, colleagues are wonderful people, very challenging work at times. Steep learning curve, especially in the initial phases.

    ConsComplete lack of respect from management and senior staff, lots of unpaid and even worse, unacknowledged overtime. Often a lack of senior support at difficult times, disorganisation at every level.

    Advice to Senior ManagementShowing a degree of respect to clinical staff may go a long way in ameliorating the difficulties faced by the NHS.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend
