    I have been working at HM Forces

    Pros

    People, purpose, pay - Friends for life, high moral standards and strong team ethic with a stigma for low standards and self interest. Stimulating subject matter, diverse challenges and regular sense of achievement. Pay sufficient to offset the negatives

    Cons

    Lifestyle must be accepted - separation and periodic total commitment and long hours. Never more than average income. Falling resources and role in the recession.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Manchmal wäre es schön, wenn die Belohnungen für die Arbeit zum Kohlenstoß überliefert würde, anstatt von der Leitung genommen zu werden

    Sometimes it would be nice if the rewards for work effort were passed down to the coal face and not taken by management.
