    Positive Outlook

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

    Pros

    NICE is really well-regarded and employs incredibly qualified and respected people. The offices in both Manchester and London are really central and well-equipped. Lots of possibilities for homeworking and flexible hours - great for work-life balance.

    Cons

    Some of our processes are pretty slow, it can take a while to get approval to go ahead with certain projects. But to be fair, once you have the backing of the senior management team, things get moving pretty quickly.

    Advice to Management

    NICE as an organisation is very analytical , evidence-based and cautious. This is great in many situations, but perhaps not all - a more balanced approach to some decisions would really help to speed up decision-making.

    Application

    I applied through a staffing agency. The process took 4 weeks. I interviewed at National Institute for Health and Care Excellence (Manchester, England) in March 2014.

    Interview

    Scenario assessment and panel interview. The panel Chair was a pleasure to deal with. The one clinician on the panel demonstrated behaviors that on reflection I decided I did not want to work with. The questions were pretty standard except one sub set of two that required domain specific clinical answers. The advertisement and the job description did not reflect these requirements in any way, shape or form, yet I got through the sift. When I challenged this, what I heard was that this knowledge would be needed. I simply could not understand this fundamental misalignment and I found the whole experience rather concerning.
