    Pros

    Great clients, many dedicated frontline staff

    Directors who lack leadership skills and basic business skills. NHS is very large and can appear to only care about external customers as money. Poor physical working environments and not provided with basic supplies needed to do job effectively.

    Treat employees as internal customers and as important.
