    I have been working at NHS Human Services full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    OK salary potential, decent benefit package.

    Cons

    Highly corporate structure which emphasizes cost saving measures above all else. NHS makes every effort to attract new clients while forgoing practices that benefits current clients and employees. The company claims to follow comprehensive and healthy guidelines regarding employment, but will change or ignore said policies at a moments notice when it benefits the corporate office. The NHS Autism School that I work in has a highly dangerous atmosphere, where repeated requests for physical support are ignored by higher up officials. As a result, numerous staff members were seriously injured by clients who needed more care than the school could provide. Needless to say, all clients and employees suffer at this school because of lack support from the NHS Corporate structure.

    Advice to Management

    Listen more to the employees concerns and seriously follow up when staff requests support. The time to deal with problems is before they escalate out of control. Stick to your own dictated handbook of rules and regulations. It's not fair to the change rules as you go along to fit the corporate office's position at any given moment.
