    I have been working at Brighton and Sussex University Hospitals full-time

    Pros

    Mixed reviews regarding nursing on the wards. Appears to be a nationwide issue but found management and senior staff nurture newly qualified nurses well.

    Cons

    Severely understaffed daily. Morale can be low and workload high. NHS pay is poor generally for nursing staff.

    Advice to Management

    Come onto the wards and talk to staff more often.

    Flexibility, an ability to develop one self if the motivation is there - has to be self funded though

    Disapproves of CEO

    I worked at Brighton and Sussex University Hospitals full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Flexi-time is available and the hospital was very easy to get to. The other office staff were friendly and helpful when I started.

    Cons

    Government cuts have led to a very negative environment and people were feeling under pressure most of the time. The doctors could be rather arrogant and the office staff were very quick to turn on you if you inconvenienced them.

    Advice to Management

    Get rid of those extra layers of management and treat the people who actually do the work with more respect.

    I have been working at Brighton and Sussex University Hospitals (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Job satisfaction from the fact that my efforts will help patients and clinicians. Working with some staff who are dedicated to the cause of patient care

    Cons

    Lack of professional development opportunities, over-bloated Executive team with a finger-pointing culture unable to meet the financial challenge of breaking even

    Advice to Management

    Listen to staff on the ground, improve management of staff, change the finger-pointing blame culture. Change the culture to one of clear, concise professionalism, not one of who knows who to get the job done.
