I worked at HM Treasury

Pros

Dynamic and constantly evolving atmosphere and work. Treasury has become a place for crisis management over the past few years and it does it very well. The calibre of the people is fantastic and the continuous drive for results brings out the best in people.

Cons

Upward progression has become stymied because of the limited number of SCS roles and there is a certain 'Treasury type' who tend to attain those roles. SCS are all very similar personalities. Management takes a back seat to policy development and meeting the needs of Ministers. Strategically the Department lacks the sense of direction you can find elsewhere in Whitehall.

    Look at the level of staff turnover and think that this reflects very badly on the institution.
