    While it is true that there can be a work/life imbalance; I have found that it ebbs and flows with initiatives or specific projects that drive feeling. I have had moments of being overwhelmed, but I... More

    Pros

    Insightful and full of potential to look at how health can change using IT - great people with a good mix of former health bods in the teams too.

    Cons

    Feels like the red company tape is suffocating the life of company that needs to remain local. Very little appreciation for the wider picture of a health service that is severely broken that needs absolute TLC and for professional non public companies to tread ever so carefully especially when mistakes become political. The effort spent on over engineering internal processes needs to swing back to figuring out suitable products and services for an ailing national service. "Solutions" don't cut it, dealing with such a delicate beast needs real tenacity and a considered approach.

    Senior management need to look up stop huddling and eat their own words "collaborate" with the teams on the ground - stop the hierarchy and secret meetings - it doesn't do anything but create a bigger wedge between the top and the bottom.

    Advice to Management

    Move out of the business brain and look at how the service needs to improve for patients and people - stop applying professional logic to a user focused service.

    Pros

    Quite flexible with leave and leaving on time. I can't think of anything else positive.

    Cons

    I was misold the job and there was no induction or training. There is no confidentiality or team work, collegues do not interact with each other and the job is mind numbing. No culture. No opportunities to progress and the U.S. forget the UK. Management do not provide positive feedback and staff are under valued. The environment is micromanaged.

    Advice to Management

    Establish a culture in the UK. Practice what you preach.

    Pros

    Centrally located with nice view from where the senior management sit

    Cons

    Blame culture - no accountability for mickey mouse set-up
    Brazen and bullish management style
    Indecision
    Easily influenced by stroppy salesforce
    No account for relationship building
    No regard for talent
    Lack of engagement
    Arrogant in the market

    Advice to Management

    A lot of making up to do given the bad press and publicity - instead of bullying business get down to the level and earn the work - see and observe from the successful partnerships and supplier network. Must be sandy down there.
