    Pros

    The agenda is really interesting, topical and fast moving. The working hours are very flexible and reasonable, with some very busy times which are offset by quieter times. So you can achieve a good work life balance. On the whole, people are enthusiastic, bright and respectful.

    Cons

    It is not very joined up so you can find your self repeating other peoples work. The office can be a bit slow and quiet times. And there is a lot of processes to follow which can be stifling. The senior management team are also not paid very competitively which is a dinincentive.


  2. Really interesting place to work, although suffers from too many inexperienced policy officers.

    Too many inexperienced colleagues, especially at the policy lead level.

    Advice to Management

    Concentrate on building up individual knowledge and expertise.
    Focus more on long term strategic policy rather than short term media handling.
