    former CBI Senior Policy Advisor

    Senior Policy Adviser (Former Employee)
    London, England (UK)

    ProsExposure to senior business people and government representatives
    Responsibility for own policy area

    ConsPoor career management and few development opportunities for policy specialists once you have climbed the first couple of steps of the career ladder
    This may have changed but at the time: very little emphasis on innovative ways to approach policy areas
