In the beginning I thoroughly enjoyed working at Beacon Hospital, however since new manager took over it all started to quickly go down hill. Poor management, toxic workenvironment, no one to approach with concerns (HR received numerous reports but no action was taken), increasing work load with inadeqaute staffing levels, leading to poor work/life balance and increased hours on-site and consequently high staff turnover.
Pros
Multidisciplinary experience, Good colleagues, Parking
Cons
Poor Management, High staff turnover, Stressful Work environment

Current laboratory management style is poor. No consideration for individuals, or work life balance. Huge turnover of staff as result, which does not seem to be addressed by senior management, despite having an exit interview process in place.
Pros
Modern building, good equipment
Cons
Work life balance poor, management poor, big turnover of staff as a result

Can honestly say I regard my time in the Beacon hospital as a colossal waste of time. At my interview I was promised so many opportunities, none of which came to pass. Management do not support the professional development of their employees, their only loyalty is to the business and making sure as much money is generated as possible. I found it a toxic, suffocating environment. Would not recommend to anyone!!!!

Beacon Hospital is nice place to work, especially when it is first experience and first job in Ireland. But fairly management is mostly reason why this hospital doesn't require better rating. Otherwise still nice and safe place to work.

I've been working in the catering department for a couple of years. You are told from the beginning what to expect and you get training. being a hospital environment you are required to maintain high standards.Ive worked with nice people from all over the world and irish as well. It's not a job that you would make a career out of (although there are catering assistants who are working there for 10+ years), but overall I had a good experience working for them.
Pros
Free meals, pharmacy discounts

I had the “pleasure” to be a part of the catering staff in this place. It was an experience I will not forget for a long time. People are overworked and over stressed from constant humiliation from both, the kitchen chefs and the management.They do not have the time to sit down and do their duties called “stickers” and the funniest part is that there are no chairs or desks to write them on.The main chef is an angry woman with a foul language who seeks fault in every employee on a daily basis. The worst thing is the fact that the management has been aware of that for many years but nothing had changed. If you’re looking for an interesting story for a newspaper article go and work there for a week.

Total disaster, I worked in catering. worst job in my life. You work as a slave here, you are always humiliated by the chefs, manager and supervisor. you work 13 hours a day and you are not allowed to drink water, you are not allowed to smile, you are not allowed to talk to coworkers. You must always push 3 troleys, clean NO STOP. PS HCR knows about this and they do not want to take action!

Don't think that this is hospital that cares for patients or their employees... Money making system in which everyone benefits for their current goals. Not nice place to work for long.

I was focusing mostly on cardioresp patients as well as ICU. It was very rewarding, but challenging at times. I definitely learned a lot from my educator.

Nice place to work, just still very far away from good organisation. I'm very confident in assisting our consultants with diagnostic and therapeutic procedures- like balloon dilatation, varicies banding, banding or injecting of haemorrhoids, apc, plypectomies. Good communication skills. I love my job and people who works with me

I have learned a lot of different things since I came to the Beacon Hospital. Therefore I feel I have grown personally and professionally within the healthcare industry. I have assisted various doctors and nurses perform different procedures on patients for example, I assisted a doctor perform a lumbar puncture, I also assisted a nurse to insert a catheter. I have learned how to take a patients obervations, and assist patients with CPMs when required. A large part of my job is to move between the wards, therefore I will see various departments with a number of different illnesses and injuries on a daily basis.
Pros
Flexibilty
Cons
Inconsistent working hours
