    I worked at Department for Work And Pensions as a contractor for less than a year

    Pros

    It feel good to work for the government and the work environment is full of opportunity to learn and grow. Job satisfaction level is high with all the perks.

    Cons

    The only challenge which i see is sometime we get some potential violent customers which i see as a good opportunity to use the skills of customers service and handle that kind of customers

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    I believe we should have a dress code, which will enhance the working environment.
