    I have been working at NHS full-time

    Pros

    Great clients, many dedicated frontline staff

    Cons

    Directors who lack leadership skills and basic business skills. NHS is very large and can appear to only care about external customers as money. Poor physical working environments and not provided with basic supplies needed to do job effectively.

    Advice to Management

    Treat employees as internal customers and as important.

    Ongoing support to staff, very supportive if your needs are known

    Cons

    Shortage of staff , which leads to burnout , staff who works becomes tired

    I have been working at NHS full-time

    Pros

    People are smart, diligent and hard working committed to a good cause. collective intitiatives keep the lights on and service delivery going

    Cons

    Funding and work schedules are tough. Policy and management make it hard to innovate and improve your service as a professional

    Advice to Management

    let the people delivering care steer you, work with them, don't push them in to doing things, or at least explain clearly and succinctly what you are expecting of them

    I have been working at NHS (Less than a year)

    Pros

    You form relationships with your clients

    Cons

    Pay is far less than what the work requires
    Management stay in their offices more than they walk around to help, especially with aggressive clients
    No lunch breaks, have to eat with clients
    Use and abuse you when you're full time
    Very high turnover

    Advice to Management

    Benefits! Both monetary and physically, a coffee machine, donuts sometimes, snacks...

    Negative Outlook

    I worked at NHS part-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    -can make your own hours from 8am-8pm

    Cons

    -fee for service, over half of your clients will cancel,most with zero notice
    -minimum of 10 hours billable time (aka expect to sit in an office for 20 hours prepping,doing service notes,treatment plans,your schedule, missed appointment letters etc and not getting paid for it)
    -no supplies were provided, there's a box of useless things in each office
    -no separate restrooms for employees, awkward walking in and seeing your client or their family in there
    -little support from anyone

    Advice to Management

    Get rid of fee for service. Every therapist I talked to would have gathered a pay cut to be paid every office hour over a higher rate per hour that the client actually shows up to.
