I worked at BIS full-time (Less than a year)
- Interesting work promoting the growth of UK business and helping the economy to grow - Mostly friendly staff - Management structure fairly relaxed compared to other central Government Departments. - Flexibile working encouraged - Excellent offices
- Gross overstaffing, even after the cuts, which leads to: - Lack of sufficiently engaging work - BIS is a large organisation with a relatively weak centre, meaning there can be repetition of work between different units, and attempts to create a more nimble organisation don't reach the lower levels.
Advice to Management
- Cut staff numbers - Refine scope of BIS's mission and focus on key aims to join up work within the Department.
