    Pros

    Fixed hours, good colleagues. Most patients and their families are lovely and make the job worthwhile.

    Cons

    No promotional opportunities unless you are in administration/hospital management. Expected to do the work of a higher grade. Lack of respect from hospital management. Not enough staff or equipment. No encouragement to partake in CPD. Pay levies..... I could go on....

    I have been working at Health Service Executive part-time

    Pros

    excellent pay for unskilled work and ability to work overtime to get time in leui or extra payment. flexibility with working hours.

    Cons

    the worst part about the job is working weekends and evenings. there is additional compensation for Sundays and you may have the option to work Monday to Friday.

    Advice to Management

    this is an excellent job with many great benefits and great compensation for unskilled work. It is hard work and can be very busy.

    I have been working at Health Service Executive full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    It's a job that pays regularly though below the wild expectations of the public!

    Cons

    Qualified professional clinicians are managed by book-keepers and clerical staff who float up the "management" structure. Lateral thinking is an anathema. The management has become so focused on metrics, euros and sycophancy that they have forgotten that their role is to support clinical staff in caring for patients, not hinder them.

    Advice to Management

    Resign. Seriously. You are hide bound in a mind set that is fearful of change or progress. You don't support new initiatives until they are proven successful, then you turn up for the plaudits. Sack the deadwood and use the money saved to employ clinical staff. Be patient centered!
