    Pros

    Flexi time and decent holidays, reasonable pay

    Cons

    Line managers are unable to deal with problems, bullying gets swept under the carpet, lazy workers are never confronted over their lack of work meaning everyone else has to take up their slack, ridiculous policies regarding how to set out your desk - sorry but I will put my stapler and phone where I want it not where some idiot civil servant tells me its most productive.

    Advice to Management

    Stop being so 'PC' about everything - if someone is being bullied do not pander to the bully so you dont hurt their feelings.

    Pros

    Workforce consists of highly motivated and intelligent people, teeming with ideas. Enjoyable working lifestyle and opportunities to contribute to work which may have wide impact on society.

    Cons

    Often too relaxed and many lack much drive on a day to day basis. Lack of accountability and performance management

    Advice to Management

    Good management, tasks well delegated both within groups and smaller teams within. Greater transparency and cooperation between teams would not go amiss however
