    I have been working at British Consulate-General New York full-time

    Pros

    Depending on the team you're on, you can work on an amazing variety of projects and meet people from many different sectors and backgrounds. The office culture is more European for obvious reasons, which is a nice perk in terms of hours, vacation, and flexibility. There are some great training options and the occasional business trip to London or elsewhere.

    Cons

    The biggest challenge is the lack of pay and rigid bureaucracy. The base salaries are posted with the job postings, which is useful. Unfortunately they pale in comparison to the average market rate for similar jobs. There can also be a lot of red tape to get through in order to get things done, as is always the case in government.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Retain talent by managing budgets more wisely and spending more on salaries.

    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeksinterviewed at British Consulate-General New York.

    Interview Details

    Applied online and received a brief phone call interview with HR who later set up the in-person interview. Interview consisted of meeting with the two people the position would mainly work under - HR played very little role in the actual interview process. I had to complete a brief writing test on a computer. Overall, a professional interview experience.
