    I have been working at Department of Energy & Climate Change full-time (less than an year)

    Pros

    Excellent development, both analytic and personal.
    Fantastic work life balance.
    Good offices.
    Lots of direction from the Chief Economist.
    Quality of the analytical work in the department is excellent which you can learn a lot from.
    The department is very commercially focused and you can therefore larn a lot of commercial/technical skills to take elsewhere.
    Always the opportunity to take complex projects forward and lead teams of policy professionals.

    Cons

    Some roles can be slow because of the nature of the role. ie working on a project that comes online in 40 years means the work going on today can be slower than usual.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    More perks, in terms of performance benefit. But understoof why this doesnt happen (as its tax payer funded).

    I have been working at Department of Energy & Climate Change full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    The agenda is really interesting, topical and fast moving. The working hours are very flexible and reasonable, with some very busy times which are offset by quieter times. So you can achieve a good work life balance. On the whole, people are enthusiastic, bright and respectful.

    Cons

    It is not very joined up so you can find your self repeating other peoples work. The office can be a bit slow and quiet times. And there is a lot of processes to follow which can be stifling. The senior management team are also not paid very competitively which is a dinincentive.
