    No opinion of CEO

    I have been working at National Institute for Health and Care Excellence full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Good staff benefits - carer's leave, NHS pension, cycle to work scheme, flexible working options including working from home

    Cons

    Slow to effect change, constant staff changes and management of change due to Department of Health funding cuts. Very hierarchical staffing structure and some senior managers are a bit power crazy.

    Advice to Management

    Be a bit more flexible about changes to working methods etc.


  2. "avoid unless on project manager career path"

    Negative Outlook

    I have been working at National Institute for Health and Care Excellence full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Flexible working, nice office, office in good location and easy to get to by public transport.

    Cons

    Slow. Too many directors and AD's who get preferential treatment regarding flexible working i.e. directors work fraction of their hours from home from the opposite side of the country attempting to manage their teams in an office - doesn't work. Demoralised staff. No responsibility for directors and AD - they are not in the real world. If your face doesn't fit you will not get any type of promotion. Not a friendly atmosphere.

    Advice to Management

    Get rid of all the managers - directors, AD's, programme managers.
