    Interesting place to work

    Policy Adviser (Current Employee) London, England (UK)

    Prosmanagement are making a concerted effort to improve employee satisfaction and address current issues, this will take time but it's good that it's happening
    nice colleagues, some very talented people, some less so
    easy to apply for and change into new roles after a little while
    flexible working arrangements
    nice hours (9-5 is norm)

    Consnot enough challenge in my role
    VERY hierarchical
    takes ages for things to process through
    average pay (could be considered low in London)
    high employee turnover compared to other departments, which can cause problems with continuity

    Advice to Senior ManagementKeep working towards improving leadership abilities and top-down communication. Building a bigger sense of 'team' and 'us' would also help.

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend

    Band A Cabinet Office

    Band A (Current Employee) London, England (UK)

    ProsGood work life balance, opportunity for growth if self motivated.

    ConsVery hierarchical, with significant amounts of siloed working. Often a need to navigate poor/unclear internal governance processes.

    Advice to Senior ManagementNeeds much more thought on HR beyond a conveyor belt of hires: there is no thought about how a career should be structured to attract, train and retain staff. Too much reliance on the civil service fallacy of generalists.

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend
