        I have been working at Marie Curie full-time for more than 20 years

        Pros

        Helping people to be where they want to be at the end of their life and to have who they want with them. Helping and supporting families when a loved one has a terminal illness

        Cons

        Total waste of public donations on managerial whims and I wants. Poorly trained managers with no people skills. Too many highly paid contractors employed to carry out projects that often fail. Permanent staff taken for granted and expected to carry out more than one persons job and to work unpaid overtime which is reliant on the"goodwill"of the employee not paid for and never acknowledged. Complete lack of awareness...

        Advice to Management

        Take time out to look and really see how demoralized your staff are, ask yourself why so many long term employees are suddenly moving on. Advice to CEO - get rid of your "yes men" and wake up to what is really going on under your term of office
