    I have been working at UK National Health Service

    Pros

    - Comparitively good salary for a public sector company.
    - Good staff benefits package.
    - Creative freedom to do what we feel is best.
    - Friendly co-workers.

    Cons

    - Hands tied by bureacracy.
    - Severely outdated computer software/hardware, with seemingly no intention to upgrade.
    - Management are too focused on "quick wins", which reduces quality of work output.
    - Non-technical management staff for technical teams makes interaction difficult at times.
    - Little adherence to established practices and standards.
    - Engrained anti-progress culture when it requires adaptation.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Working in ICT would be so much easier if staff weren't tied down in bureaucracy and funding issues. Teams are strangled from improving the quality of their output because managers are unwilling to part with funding in the short term for long term gains.
