Neutral Outlook

I worked at General Medical Council full-time (More than 8 years)

Pros

Gain more experience in the line of getting to know more about the profession and what is right and what is wrong and how those professional people apply themselves according to the Rules and Regulations that had been stated for them to follow and adhere.

Cons

There's nothing I could think of at the moment I guess there were times I was busy and the deadline needed to be met which that would caused major panicking and sometimes it could cause temper flying high. The Deadline of endless meetings.

Advice to Management

I haven't got any advice what so ever.

    I worked at General Medical Council full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Great colleagues, interesting work, decent remuneration.
    Lots of variety.

    Cons

    Tons of over-the-top bureaucracy when I was there, and lots of energy going into maintaining little fiefdoms. Senior management behaviour was focused on one-upmanship with each other and petty run-ins, door slamming, and little time was left over for supporting or guiding their staff.

    Advice to Management

    Complete culture overhaul necessary... admittedly this may have happened by now.

    Positive Outlook

    I worked at General Medical Council full-time

    Pros

    Good salary and benefits
    Mostly good staff
    Interesting work dependant on which dept your in

    Cons

    Over recognition of those who work on projects and not enough of those who keep the ship afloat
    Favourite word is transparency but it's the last thing the organisation is
    Hierarchical
    Too much promotion from within to management positions regardless of whether candidates suitable or not leading to a significant proportion of poor middle managers
    Too many networkers whose sole aim is to raise their profile and get face seen
    Quick to discipline lower grade staff but management never held accountable for inadequacies

    Advice to Management

    Value the work horses of the organisation
    Stop engineering recruitment to get the candidates you want rather than the candidates you need
    Scrap the Valued awards, they just make those who don't play the nomination game feel under valued
