    Former Employee - Administrative Assistant in Bridgwater, England
    Doesn't Recommend

    I worked at NHS full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    From an admin point of view it’s helping others over the phone by providing “customer service”

    Cons

    Outdated attitudes and the banding hierarchy

    Advice to Management

    Value all levels, don’t just pile the rubbish jobs on the lower bandings and expect the monotony not to have a negative effect.
