    Pros

    If you are satisfied to do a poor job and have absolutely no ambition, then the total absence of any feedback or link between performance and pay means that your pay and carrer will progress at exactly the same rate as the most commitited and exceptional performer. Also, if you like to have a considerable time "off-sick" then you can without fear of reprisal.

    Cons

    If you are results focused and expect recognition and reward for your commitment then you will be bitterly disappointed. Salaries in non clinical positions are about 40% below the market rate.

    Advice to Management

    Introduce training and career advice for all employees not just clinical staff, women or those from Minority Ethnic backgrounds. Introduce frequent appraisals for all staff with specific, measurable, realistic, achiveable and time based objectives and financially reward empoloyees for acheiving them - an atta boy is nice, but it doesn't pay the mortgage. Stop wasting money by paying under achievers the same as talented committed staff.


  2. Job satisfaction hampered by political disruption.

    Commitment to a socially valuable enterprise. Opportunities to seek job moves around the country.

    Cons

    Instability due to frequent, politically-inspired, reorganisations disrupts progress. Restrictions due to frequent budget cut-backs, recruitment freezes etc

    Advice to Management

    Resist structural reorganisation.
