    It's a government job, without all the government benefits

    I worked at British Consulate-General New York full-time


    Access to leaders and decision makers within US companies and some UK government officials. The training and learning programs. Co-workers are fun and knowledgeable.


    IT systems are painfully slow and restrictive, but they are working on a big overhaul. Staff is pulled in many directions because of matrix structure (three bosses with competing priorities). The administrative leader for each post (Head of Trade and Investment) have no upward mobility - the good ones leave for Industry, and the bad ones stay because they can't get a better job.

    Advice to Management

    Put term limits of Heads of Trade and Investment. It's the bad ones that drive good officers away.
