    Positive Outlook

    I have been working at NHS full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    It feels like a secure place to work with a future and an easy place to rise, as long as you work hard and get along.

    Cons

    There is some aspect of "who you know" but I think that is the case everywhere. They son't seem particularly keen on people with strong opinions.

    No Opinion of CEO

    I have been working at NHS

    Pros

    There are a hugh variaty of jobs in the NHS and it is possible to move location and role quite easily. There is a big emphasis on work-life balance so below managment level you can forget about work outside your 37.5 hours a week. Although the pay is lower than simular jobs in the private sector, the pension is good, as is the holiday allowance.

    Cons

    The pay structure is very rigid - those who perform their job well find their pay raises at the same rate as those who are incompitant.

    Advice to Management

    Internal communication is essentual if you want staff who will give a possitive image of the service.

  9. "Can be a worthwhile job, but you'll learn to hate your evil overlord masters at the Department of Health."

    No Opinion of CEO

    I have been working at NHS

    Pros

    The final year pension scheme, which, I think, no longer exists for new employees. And there probably won't be anything left in the pot by the time you retire anyway after Labor's finished raiding it.

    Cons

    Everything you do is geared towards chasing paper targets and nonsensical initiatives drafted by some monkey at the Department of Health, what we want to do is help people.

    Advice to Management

    Private organisations see the NHS as a cash cow they can tap for funds, heads should be rolling for the gross financial negligence exhibited by policymakers.

  10. "The death of ambition"

    Information Systems Analyst in Maidstone, England
    Doesn't Recommend
    No Opinion of CEO

    I have been working at NHS

    Pros

    If you are satisfied to do a poor job and have absolutely no ambition, then the total absence of any feedback or link between performance and pay means that your pay and carrer will progress at exactly the same rate as the most commitited and exceptional performer. Also, if you like to have a considerable time "off-sick" then you can without fear of reprisal.

    Cons

    If you are results focused and expect recognition and reward for your commitment then you will be bitterly disappointed. Salaries in non clinical positions are about 40% below the market rate.

    Advice to Management

    Introduce training and career advice for all employees not just clinical staff, women or those from Minority Ethnic backgrounds. Introduce frequent appraisals for all staff with specific, measurable, realistic, achiveable and time based objectives and financially reward empoloyees for acheiving them - an atta boy is nice, but it doesn't pay the mortgage. Stop wasting money by paying under achievers the same as... talented committed staff.
