Pros

Very relaxed environment where you are encouraged to communicate and develop with colleagues across the board. Executive board open and forthcoming.

Cons

Some restrictions on length of contract work due to a government agency. Recently moved site so may have since changed.

    I worked at MHRA full-time

    Pros

    You work within the agency. Civil service pension

    Cons

    I felt that there was an absolutely terrible atmosphere, and perceived a real "if your face fits" mentality. In my opinion promotion was not based on merit. I am aware of a lot of people that left as a result of the atmosphere.

    Advice to Management

    The SMT need to take a hard long look at what is going on and work out why people are leaving.

    Pros

    Great place....particularly for diversity of regulatory and scientific work to deal with. A lot to learn on the regulatory front. Flexible as well (up to 3 days from working home).

    Cons

    Salary/career progression limited after reaching Senior grade. It can become an issue as salary increases only 1% a year...therefore people, good people, are obliged to leave.

    Bonuses (if/when you get one...good luck!) are a joke really! Very little money in comparison with the private sector.

    Advice to Management

    Try to convey a strong and clear message to Ministers to review MHRA salaries and highlighting the need of retaining highly skilled staff. Recruitment (e.g. up to 9 posts currently advertised for junior assessors) to address this issue of skilled Senior assessors leaving the Agency is not the way forward...

    Learn from previous mistakes.
