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

    Pros

    Since joining NICE I've been fortunate enough to join at a time where the team is full of like minded individuals who are very supportive of new ideas and ways of working. There is flexibility around working hours which is important as I'm a Dad with two children under six. It means I can flex my hours to share the responsibility with my wife. Many of our employees work from home on a regular basis as the nature of the work they are producing allows the managers to give that level of flexibility. Lots of very clever people who are clearly brilliant at what they do. I'm regularly having interesting, challenging and productive conversations with my fellow employees across the institute. It's NICE to be here...

    Cons

    I come from the private sector historically so from my perspective there is a shift in the way that you need to work and think about work. Much more focus on process and procedure, however there is a lot of support, so if you can develop the right internal working relationships then you can benefit from a lot of knowledge and insight.

    I worked at National Institute for Health and Care Excellence full-time for more than 10 years

    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.

    I have been working at National Institute for Health and Care Excellence full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Good staff benefits - carer's leave, NHS pension, cycle to work scheme, flexible working options including working from home

    Cons

    Slow to effect change, constant staff changes and management of change due to Department of Health funding cuts. Very hierarchical staffing structure and some senior managers are a bit power crazy.
