    Pros

    I was paid very well for what I was doing. I was on a great team with really helpful and friendly colleagues. My manager was a kind and generous person who was very concerned for our welfare.

    Cons

    I sometimes had to work unsociable hours to accomodate staff who did not work during normal hours. Often had to rechedule things multiple times due to unforseen scheduling conflicts.

    Advice to Management

    I noticed a lot of people working really hard who complained about not getting recognition for it, and others who pretended to work hard but did not and getting away with it which was a detriment to the morale of their colleagues.

    Pros

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

    Cons

    The hours,
    Pay structure for out of core hour work is not good compared to private sector.
    Being taken for granted by senior management.
    Decisions made at higher levels by management who have no real idea of what goes on at lower levels.
    Despite what anybody says, the service is driven by budget not patient needs.

    Advice to Management

    fight for a fair budget to enable top quality patient care. The health service seems to be increasingly budget driven resulting in a poorer quality service.
