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

Trade & Investment Officer (Former Employee)
Washington, DC

I worked at British Consulate General full-time

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

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

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend
