    I have been working at Monitor (UK) full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Lots of very bright people who are great to work with mostly from the bigger management consultancy firms.

    Good work/life balance in my part of the organisation but sometimes need to (expected to) work long hours if needed to deliver a particular project.

    Cons

    Some very bright people with high IQs but low EQs.

    I have been working at Monitor (UK) full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Pay is high. The organisation means well and generally tries to treat employees well. People are generally nice.

    Cons

    Paying on a different scale to comparable organistions means many people go into roles that are "too small" for them and end up feeling de-skilled. The Pricing team is set up by legislation to fail (Monitor does not have independence over its pricing decisions). Senior management is not content with "just being a regulator" - which is what the NHS badly needs. Rather, senior managers are desperate to "save the NHS", which leads to poor decision-making and uncomfortable compromises.

    I have been working at Monitor (UK) full-time

    Pros

    Lots of young very talented people who take their work very seriously. I work with a strong team who support one another...

    Cons

    Can be quite clique but once barriers are broken people are generally very friendly.Some Senior Managers lack leadership skills. Elements of bullying but no investigation's that I'm aware of so far.....

    Advice to Management

    HR need to be organised and need to deal with Staff Senior Management issues/ relationships

    Pros

    Good hours. Pay was average but in some other roles better.

    Cons

    It seems many people play "politics" to keep themselves in work.

    Advice to Management

    Be aware of politics
