great team but poor management
Project Manager, Chief Scientist Office (Current Employee) – London – 4 February 2018
Team is really sociable and friendly and I have made lasting relationships there. Sadly the support functions at NHS England are not fit for purpose, including HR, finance and procurement services. THis causes huge problems when you're trying to do your job but have people from these teams intent on obstructing your every move.
Senior managers are pleasant enough but incompetent- some projects have been open for over 10 years at a cost of hundreds of thousands of pounds, yet no one has asked why this is the case. I get the impression that no one cares if you deliver or perform and the organisation is full of highly paid wastes of space who do nothing apart from hide behind lower paid but competent staff.
I would not recommend working here if you don't suffer fools gladly or get frustrated easily.
Flexible working conditions and very laid back
