    No opinion of CEO

    Pros

    Can be a rewarding job, nice colleagues, can be a job for life once you keep your head down

    Cons

    A lot of responsibility for little pay, will end up doing three different job roles due to budget cuts and understaffing, poor change management and little support to progress (can barely go to mandatory training due to under staffing)

    Advice to Management

    Promote those who work hard and deserve it and performance manage those who don't. Run the NHS like a private sector company and there will be less wastage.

    Pros

    Good work-life balance, reasonable hourse, generally realistic objectives, good development opportunities, massive employer making mobility easy. Depending on the manager, flexible working hours are possible.

    Cons

    low pay if compared to equivalent roles in private sector. Also job security is not really a selling point anymore. Often very hyerarchical organisation.

    Advice to Management

    Stop implementing the Tory madness of reforms, seek more dialogue on the changes and restructurings, less top down implementation. Less hierarchy and silos would also be good.
