    Current Employee - Higher Executive Officer in London, England (UK)

    I have been working at Home Office full-time (more than a year)

    Pros

    Good L&D opportunities - chances to learn other languages and gain skills. A good focus on informal learning on the job as well.

    Cons

    Poor pay and sluggish progression. There remains a pay freeze, and bottle-necks can leave people stuck in lower grades for protracted periods.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Examine ways to promote dynamism in the workplace, give talent a fast-track through the management ranks and, for the sake of morale, find some more desks.

    Current Employee - Service Manager in London, England (UK)

    I have been working at Home Office full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    Lots of support for maintaining work/life balance, training and ongonig development is good, opportunities for moving to different roles if you play the game right

    Cons

    Obviously it's very political, some decisions are set by ministers so you have no input, salary progression is limited, there is a media/social stigma to being a civil servant.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Trust your staff more, take more responsibility for your area of concern and actually stand up to suppliers - they need us more than we need them!
