How are promotions handled at National Institute for Health and Care Excellence?

Pros

Some of the staff are friendly to work with and some will nic and pic on everything you do.

Cons

Wasted 16 years of my life working even overtime and toil wasn't granted. Asking for training to progress my career it was never given in all the years I was with them, but as soon as the person who's face fits came in. Training was granted and promotion was given within months.

Advice to Management

Encourage diversity especially ethnic minority at management level. It's wrong moral and professional ethics for an employee to continue to stay in junior position for 16 years when they are willing to progress and you don't encourage and offer opportunities when they are willing.

How are senior leaders perceived at National Institute for Health and Care Excellence?

Pros

Great offices, good work life balance and decent access to training

Cons

Frustrating for people with a desire to deliver tangible benefit. Void of leadership and business acumen below the CEO. Lots of disconnected departments, huge finanical waste delivering questionable levels benefit for healthcare systems when compared to the cost of running it.

Advice to Management

NICE needs an injection of people with business acumen at their management grades 8a thru to 9. Reliance of people with healthcare knowledge or academic background has seen them lose millions in unproductive contracts particularly 'commissing through evaluation' with the 'medical technology evaluation programme' probably worse offender.

Void of leadership and business acumen below the CEO.

How is management perceived at National Institute for Health and Care Excellence?

Pros

Able to flexibly work, able to work from home one day a week.

Cons

The downsides would be the fact staff are not properly supported within their job roles, it seems as though mental health for example is not taken serious or into consideration and staff end up being treated unfairly. Managers also back pedal on what they say they are going to do, but then do another.

Advice to Management

Support your staff more.

Is National Institute for Health and Care Excellence a good company to work for?

Pros

I didn't realise until I was offered the post how positive NICE is with regards to flexible working, 80% of the workforce has some form of flexible working which is invaluable in the busy world we live in today! Great offices and teams with an ideal location for commuters, I couldn't have asked for a better place to work :-)

Cons

Honestly haven't come across any reason to be unhappy to date!
