    Don't go into this for the Salary, but interesting and varied work.

    ConsCan be frustrating working with politicians.

    Enjoayable Summer Internship in which I learned a lot

    Intern (Former Employee) London, England (UK)

    ProsPeople - most don't fit the civil service stereotype, instead they were energetic and dynamic
    Freedom - probably specific to being an intern, but I was given some freedom to pursue opportunities that appealed to me

    ConsStructure is sluggish. As with many parts of the civil service, things can't get done quickly. This has a knock on effect of curtailing innovation, and whilst the people were dynamic and enthusiastic, they did not seem too hopeful of their ideas being implemented quickly

    Advice to Senior ManagementTry to move with the times and streamline some implementation processes to invigorate the workforce

    Great place to work and develop

    Manager (Current Employee) London, England (UK)

    ProsGood place to work, develop, good management and lots of opportunities to grow and be successful, good training and development and good teams.

    ConsRestricted budgets, lots of restructuring caused lower productivity. But good that senior management are reviewed first then lower management.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company
