    I worked at Imperial College Healthcare NHS Trust full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Most of the people there are fantastic to work with, who will always give you more bit to make ends meet.

    Cons

    They are chronically underfunded. There is no money for anything and the facilities are falling apart. This, along with the bureaucracy involved in changing anything has left them lightyears behind other industry sectors that do similar tasks. They are in desperate need of a functioning IT system, as this would solve about 60% of their problems. This goes for the whole of the NHS. Additionally, there need to change their HR policy on highering, as it has allowed mediocrity to remain, pulling these rest of the hard working staff down.

    I worked at Imperial College Healthcare NHS Trust full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    *Looks good on your CV *You will pick up skills quickly (if you don't k*ll yourself first)

    Cons

    *The medics (Drs) treat you like dirt, are bullying, spoilt and have zero respect for non medics or those without double barrell surnames. *It is racist. Though I am white English, I have heard racist attitudes and see the difference in the way my white colleagues are treated compared with how my non-white colleagues are treated. *Management do not care about you at all. They do not reward or recognise hard work, but will come down like a tonne of bricks for small mistakes - unless those mistakes are made y medics, then it is fine. *Brutal rotas *Lazy supervisors that sit around in the coffee room all day whilst junior staff do all the work. I left mainly because I couldn't stomach the bullying culture, classism and weak management. I am happy where I am now.

    I worked at Imperial College Healthcare NHS Trust

    Pros

    Central location for St Marys Good social life Some hard working, dedicated and pleasant staff in mid-level jobs Reputation of old still carries weight on CV

    Cons

    Where to start. Awful organisation that treats staff appallingly. Exec are completely removed from reality. So many Projects not completed and/or completely unsuccessful. Disgusting amount spent on contractors that did not provide anything of much value. Observed a number of HR 'cover-ups' of bullying, incompetency and general unacceptable behaviour in the workplace.

    I worked at Imperial College Healthcare NHS Trust full-time

    Pros

    - Brilliant Work/Life balance. Rarely ever had to work a weekend and annual leave allowance is great. - One of the best pensions you can possibly get. - Patients are still very much at the centre in the decisions made, which is how it should be. - The team I was in were friendly and a blast to be around/work with and line manager valued our input, couldn't speak for other teams. - Flexible hours, brilliant means of remote working/access. - Will definitely provide a good start for people seeking opportunities, despite the poor means of progression. - The interaction/involvement of the frontline staff with ICT matters/development, both clinical and non-clinical, is brilliant. - Reputable organisation!

    Cons

    - Poor day-to-day communication between different teams, meaning lack of agility and frequently duplicated/wasted effort. - Very poor means of progression if you don't have the connections. It's incredibly disheartening to see hard-working people being trapped in their pay grade despite their efforts/dedication. - HR are laughably slow and downright diabolical. - Very poor retention of talent, especially the young. - Can be very cliquey, definitely to a detriment. - Depending on area you are in and/or your efficiency, you are at a VERY high risk of simply being taken for granted (not the same as being appreciated or respected!).
