I have been working at South London and Maudsley NHS Foundation Trust full-time (More than 5 years)

Pros

Pay, benefits. The NHS has good job security.

Cons

Senior Management. As in any large organisation, the ones who rise to the top are narcissists and don't care much for those below them. There are office politics.

Advice to Management

This is a mental health organisation, please treat employees with kindness and care.

    The Trust's Corporate department is generally supportive of career progression, supervision, and expanding opportunities.

    Acting up or working to a job load that exceeds capacity is not out of the ordinary.

    My advice to management would be to cut out the political strife between senior managers and to listed to staff on the ground.
