Unskilled and poorly trained managers, who are very hung up on job titles and do little to support their staff. In position not for their people skills but because of longevity of service and possibly because they've "seen off" better qualified people who just aren't in it for the fight. Beware of very high staff turnover in some department s, remember people leave managers, not jobs.
Pros
Convenient from home, great teamwork with people on the floor, mostly very hard working colleagues. Working within own community and giving somethingback.
Cons
culture shakeup needed, when, toxic culture, don't over perform and show up lazy colleagues, remember, fair bit of pushing around happens, this stuff belongs in the playground, the toxic element is known about and nothing is ever done

Team was very unhappy & stressed - mainly because immediate manager was inconsiderate & did not know how to provide direction. She called an impromptu team meeting from 7:30 pm - 8:30 pm (after a full workday that started at 8:30 am), only to gripe about subordinates who left without saying goodbye to her. I & another colleague worked 50 hours/week for 2 consecutive weeks at no extra pay & was told no time in lieu as those extra hours are part of the package. A colleague was disallowed from taking leave to attend to sick child. Culture may have changed now under a different leadership.
Pros
Working inside a hospital is a different experience
Cons
inconsiderate & incompetent leadership
