    I have been working at East London NHS (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Many opportunities if you are clinical staff

    Cons

    -Many temporary contracts, which just get renewed although they cover permanent needs
    -Due to insecurity, the temporary staff deliver much more than they get paid for hoping that they will get a permanent contract

    Advice to Management

    There are more Band 6-8 staff working in the corporate offices than staff Band 2-4. Having so many more managers than supporting staff does not make any sense.

    Pros

    Medical staff truly care about the patients and want to help in any way they can. People here love the community and it shows in the work.

    Cons

    There is absolutely no room for growth unless you play teachers pet with management (who know little to nothing about the function and actual programs going on). People are given one billion and one different duties and some employees have worked here for years with minimal raisesuper that don't keep up with inflation! Administration is condescending and make employees feel incompetent. Employees walk on eggshells fearful for their jobs. It's a sad situation because such good people are stuck there.

    Advice to Management

    Treat people like human beings and not dehumanised cogs in a machine. Put people who actually care about employees and patients. This place could be the top of the crop if there was better leadership and built employee morale! Get it together people!

    I have been working at East London NHS full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Good benefit pack, including perks such as NHS discounts, Trust Benefits, special rewards such as 2 extra days of annual leave if you have not been sick for the entire year, holidays of a lifetime (you can accumulate a few days of annual leave and after a few years, you can take all of them together for an exceptionally length of time to travel the world for a a couple of months).
    Very helpful teams (learning and development, recruitment, HR, workforce/payroll, finance, people participation, nurses, ...)
    I have worked for another NHS Trust and the different is enormous. East London NHS Foundation Trust is well ahead of other NHS Trust.

    Cons

    The Trust could do much better with their offer of internal training or subsidised external training to help and support current employees to develop their careers.
