    Pros

    Your experience of the organisation depends on the team, the line manager and the work. I've been experiences of good line management and work as well as those not so good.

    Huge bureaucratic, difficult to get things done quickly and efficiently. However given how new it is it doing well.

    I worked at Public Health England full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    Nice place to retire, so long as you are with the "in crowd"

    Cons

    no forward progression whatsoever
    hard workers get no recognition
    hierarchy system within the ICT organisation.

    Advice to Management

    Look after the hard working staff, the battleaxe who has taken over the ICT department has recruited her favourite golden childs. A blatant and open drive to recruit more women within ICT is not only sexist but borderline illegal. As long as you are with the "in crowd"you are favoured and can get further within the organisation.
