    Pros

    good place to start off a career as a graduate technologist from mid ranked school. was able to learn the basics of working life before moving on to a more appropriate role.

    Cons

    bureaucracy, poor quality staff, but no worse than any public sector role, pay was not great either, but you dont work in the NHS for the money, do you?

    Advice to Management

    not sure they can do any more

  2. Creative Freedom, but suffers from Ingrained Bureaucracy

    Pros

    - Comparitively good salary for a public sector company.
    - Good staff benefits package.
    - Creative freedom to do what we feel is best.
    - Friendly co-workers.

    Cons

    - Hands tied by bureacracy.
    - Severely outdated computer software/hardware, with seemingly no intention to upgrade.
    - Management are too focused on "quick wins", which reduces quality of work output.
    - Non-technical management staff for technical teams makes interaction difficult at times.
    - Little adherence to established practices and standards.
    - Engrained anti-progress culture when it requires adaptation.

    Advice to Management

    Working in ICT would be so much easier if staff weren't tied down in bureaucracy and funding issues. Teams are strangled from improving the quality of their output because managers are unwilling to part with funding in the short term for long term gains.
