I worked at Environment Agency full-time for less than a year

Pros

Flexible time, company lease car, relaxed atmosphere,

Cons

Lack of opportunities for career development within posts. Need to move departments to develop or be promoted

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Be clear on what the company objectives are. Too many people spending money on projects that may or may not have a significant environmental outcome/benefit.

    I have been working at Environment Agency full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    Flexi time, being trusted to be responsible for work streams. Respected at whatever age; treated equally. Feel like you are making a difference.

    Cons

    Proceedures. Length of time it takes to procure. HR department is slow, loses documents and do not show good customer service. Not good at motivating staff. IT equiptment is old. Only just updated to windows 7 from 2000 in 2012.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Focus on staff productivity. Allow short cutting of proceedures to get the work done. Sort HR out.
