    I have been working at Anthony Nolan part-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    It's a friendly place to work 90% of the time but there are some tight knit cliques who seem to be very close and even meet up at weekends and go to musueums and stuff.
    It is a well organised place to work.

    Cons

    Lack of progression. Occasionally only the ones who are best friends with the manager gets a promotion.

    I worked at Anthony Nolan full-time

    Pros

    A great cause, wonderful people to be met through campaigns and the idea that contribute to saving one or more potential lives!

    Cons

    Horrible management. The only people who can get promoted are best friends with the current managers (with a few taking drastic measures to get there including lying and pretending to actually care for the charity). The charity is now a business with only the most pretentious at the top. Hard work and genuine people wont be rewarded there.

    Advice to Management

    No advice needed. They know well what they do wrong on purpose.

    I have been working at Anthony Nolan full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    Incredible cause to work for and a real breadth of roles and opportunities to those fortunate enough to get them/driven enough to seek them out. Come a long long way since I started working here, a real vision to do good and to strive to continually get better (although sometimes a bit backwards about going forwards, but we seem to be improving!)

    Cons

    Things seem to be either too thought through or not enough... either a 'strategy' is created where an action plan would suffice or stuff happens without enough prior thought and planning

    Advice to Management

    Even when you think you are communicating things well, it could be clearer, more timely and with better follow up.... just a wordy email doesn't tick the boxes

    I have been working at Anthony Nolan full-time

    Pros

    A wonderful charity and cause, the people who work here are nice and the work is meaningful. There is a good work life balance, good if you have a family.

    Cons

    Little to no room for growth or progression into more senior roles - they prefer to hire from outside the charity. This can be really frustrating if you love the charity and want to progress your career.

    Advice to Management

    Nurture and promote talent within the organisation to retain staff. Last year for example, almost the entire fundraising department left their roles. This is disruptive to the entire organisation.

    I have been working at Anthony Nolan full-time

    Pros

    Friendly, enthusiastic and talented colleagues.
    Clear strategic direction.
    Little bureaucracy (although sometimes it feels like there's a lack of process).
    Flexible working hours.
    Senior leadership team very approachable.

    Cons

    No obvious opportunities for promotion or pay progression.
    Different teams/divisions could work better together.

    Advice to Management

    Keep engaging with staff at all levels - this really helps to make people feel valued.
    Better communication around the planning process.

    Pros

    People are very passionate, committed and enthusiastic.
    There is a clear organisational strategy and a number of divisional strategies that dovetail with the overall aims.
    It is easy to get new ideas tested and there is a growing culture of innovation.

    Cons

    There are some legacy systems that need an overall (which are being worked on)
    Pace of some change (IT) can seem slow.
    There is a lot going - so some streamlining of activity is required.

    Advice to Management

    Start the planning process earlier and ensure operational plans are not developed in silos.

    I have been working at Anthony Nolan full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Everyone cares deeply about their jobs and it's clear to almost everyone the part they play in saving lives. A lot of attention is paid to organisational culture and work-life balance is taken seriously.

    Cons

    Location isn't very central but being right next to the Heath is lovely in the summer.
