    Great people...really committed!
    My experience is put to good use and I feel valued by my manager and the teams I work with across the Trust.

    Big trust - lots going on and lots of opportunity to get involved.

    Internal communication still needs developing, but can see that is been worked on.
    Salary is not as high as private sector, but great benefits and work/life balance.

    Pros

    You get the satisfaction of helping others.

    Cons

    The NHS looks after patients but has an aggressive attitude towards employees, I'd call it institutional bullying

    Advice to Management

    Learn to respect your staff. If you're having a restructure staff deserve the option of redundancy or accepting another job purely so that they can be bullied out!
