Awful place to work

There is a hierarchy in every area and if you're not part of the clique then you have no chance of any real advancement. Information is never passed on to the administration staff. Management offer nothing but lip service both to staff and the public. It's a seriously competitive atmosphere and definitely 'jobs for the boys'. Not a nice place to work.

Stressful day from start to finish..Managers no help at the do hardly anything and the Clerical staff do it all.You just get thrown into the job and go there you run it.People from the outside with no experience come in and take your job..Ran a clinic for 14 months as I was on a contract boom they took on someone with no experience couldnt even use a computer. Stressful job with bad pay your only a number.
Pros

Good team to work with. Flexi hoursEasy to manage with family lifeVery difficult to progress up the grades or get transferOnly recruit from panels, so someone could be doing the job for years and years as they are temporary officers and then loose their job to someone coming in off a panel with no experience at all. It’s ridiculous
Pros
Flexi time
Cons
Very hard to progress

I enjoyed my time working in the Health Service Executive. A typical day in work would have been constant contact with service users and staff from the appropriate places e.g hostel staff, hospital's, drug treatment centres, prison services etc. I have learned a lot in the last year, how to communicate with service users. Learning how to deal with intense situations and being able to be professional at all times.
Pros
Great learning skills
Cons
