    Negative Outlook

    I have been working at Imperial College London full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    The team on the actual floor is working hard. We are supposed to and we like to do so.

    Cons

    Bullying by managers and intimidation by involving other staff and setting people up against each other. Creating a untrustworthy environment towards Management! A certain Manager doesn't work as confidential as work in NHS is supposed to be. On top of this all Band 2 for being a healthcare assistant is also not ok. The amount of work we put into this trust.... And not getting appreciation financially.
