    Negative Outlook

    I have been working at Royal College of General Practitioners full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Super convenient location, gorgeous building/office, happy people, some general appetite for growth and some directors are brilliant.

    Cons

    - they offer 2 types of contracts (depending on roles) and one is crap, nothing better than statutory minimums, making turnover high and moral low
    - No career development or promotions
    - The organisation has changed management: got rid of CEO and lead by senior stakeholders who are not business people and don't 'get it', and want sign off on everything though never actually sign off.
    - As organisation is absolutely opposed to risk and non commercial, despite claims otherwise ... this makes it near impossible to get any plans approved.

    Advice to Management

    - To many chefs spoil the pot
    - Get commercial management in place if you really want to grow/expand
    - Take better care of ALL your employees
    - Money talks and your employees have bills to pay
    - Trust the managers/directors you've put in place to do the right thing

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 5 days. I interviewed at Royal College of General Practitioners (London, England) in March 2013.

    Interview

    The interview was pretty much the standartised interview with some generic questions and some role-specific questions. It was well planned, happening on time and in organised manner. There were two interviewers - departmental manager and line manager. The questions were asked in a calm and inviting manner, giving plenty of time to think and answer them. I did not feel the interview was hasted and that added extra confidence when replying.

    Interview Questions

    • The interview was followed by a short test, required to pass in order to be succesful in the role and consisted of a reply email to one of the stakeholders + an apology letter due to technical error in our department.   Answer Question
