    5. 4.0

      Decent place to work in comparison to other patient-facing roles!

      4 Feb 2021 - Registered Nurse in Glasgow, Scotland, Scotland

      Pros

      Good patient ratio, excellent holiday entitlement, good team.

      Cons

      Lots of politics in-house, less than desirable management team, not many opportunities for advancement/variability of skills. Recent changes to off-duty "rules" (not allowed to request shifts on, not allowed to request a few days off in a row, etc have contributed to a poorer work-life balance and has impacted staff morale in a big way).
