    I have been working at EMIS Health full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Good people
    New management that seem to actually care about the staff on the desk and that wants to support us to get better - wasn’t always the case at Egton but since we’ve had a new Department Manager and Director this has improved greatly.

    Cons

    Some products are better than others - pressure is always on us to fix things that should be fixed in the first place by SD&T Team.
    Pay is now more equal, but still less than what is available elsewhere.
    Pace of change is quite intense at the moment.
    Tools are quite old fashioned (still using VNC to dial into sites etc)

    Advice to Management

    Support those who seem to now have the right idea. Friends in other department don’t seem to be having such a good time of it.

    I worked at EMIS Health full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    - I have made friends for a lifetime at EMIS Health. The staff is the backbone of the company. Some of my colleagues are genuinely the loveliest and most competent people I've had the pleasure to work with in my career
    - You get free tea and coffee and the chill room is spacious
    - My job role was interesting and stimulating
    - uh that's it

    Cons

    - Cliquey culture, double standards and lack of career advancement; in terms of career advancement it's more a case of *who* you know rather than *what* you know; this means competent and hard-working colleagues are being systematically passed over for promotion, because they're not friends with key people in management
    - Petty and infantilising timekeeping - line managers regularly summon you to a meeting to tell you off for having been as little as one minute late and not apologising for it. They have even lost staff over the obsessive timekeeping. In line with the cliquey culture, though, it only applies to certain members of staff, and not others - if you're mates with a manager, you can waltz in 15-20 minutes late, no problem
    - Perks started to kick in last year - sick pay was finally introduced in 2016 after many commiserations from HR, and they're quite stringy when it comes to giving you flexiwork or time off for ill health; basically they only go halfway in supporting you, giving you flexiwork but expecting you to grovel for it, when it should be a baseline for any self-respecting employer
    - Maternity benefits are absolutely dismal - they stick to the bare minimum legal requirements in the UK
    - They don't appreciate honesty and hard work - basically going up and beyond is their employee benchmark, but don't expect them to go up and beyond for you. You're basically a means to an end, a unit of production; and all the above contributes to a hostile work environment
    - I've observed instances of what could be construed as xenophobic and sexist comments by certain members of staff and bullying

    Advice to Management

    Value your staff! Don't treat them like toddlers or disposable trash and cut down on the double standards - what applies to staff should also apply to middle and senior management. Lead by example, not by fear or pettiness.
