Pros

Great team, great communication between team, decent salary in comparison with competitors, good trust between area manager and my role.

Cons

It systems are too slow and taken too long to update, although they are now updating them. I feel that they could trust the managers to make more in house decisions.

Advice to Management

Trust the managers opinions more.

Pros

Pay is alright, work is exciting, patients and staff are friendly.

Cons

Management contradict each other, conflicting jobs and information, no stable structure for prescreening. What you learn from on colleague will be wrong to another colleague and you never shadow the same person so be prepared to continuously have them unsatisfied with the way you learn. Colleagues who have been there the longest seem self inflated and quick tempered, blaming a majority of things on new staff. Derogatory tones and eye-rolling are extremely common, I don't think you'll make friends here. I'll be moving on as soon as I qualify, disappointed and disheartened..
