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

    Pros

    Work/life balance Working from home flexibility Annual leave entitlements Pension contributions Excellent CEO

    Cons

    All of the issues below are based on my experience within a specific team - I believe this is normally a very good place to work but I'd avoid IT: Poor management (at Team and Department level) Typical NHS issue with promoting unqualified people into positions of management due to long service rather than skills Questionable use of public funds (IT specific) Lack of support Poor planning and terrible risk management
