Pros

A very driven organisation. A huge variety of roles and positions throughout the organisation, with highly talented and very intelligent workforce. Final salary scheme pension, and very good facilities.

Cons

Conflicting directions of various departments and internal politics lead to contradictory messages internally. The organisation as a whole appears unfocussed and lacking in a clear, uniform direction (though this could also be a benefit as well!). No ability for employees to provide formal (or anonymous) feedback on their managers during personal development sessions.

Advice to Management

Provide better mechanisms for your employees to provide feedback on their managers. The current system doesn't work! Better communication between departments is vital.

    I worked at Wellcome Trust full-time

    Pros

    Intelligent colleagues all working towards shared aims. Great benefits and reasonable salary. Fantastic mission anyone could get behind.

    Cons

    Many egos at work. Hierarchical decision making. It can be Hard to break out of the 'box' you are assigned to.

    Advice to Management

    Don't just pay lip service to encouraging employee participation in decision making; respect their knowledge, experience, and genuine desire to help.
