    Pros

    Flexible working hours are a key benefit of working in the Civil Service along with a very generous pension scheme. The pay is very competitive with the private sector and the opportunities for promotion and mobility around other departments I are excellent.

    Cons

    Management at senior level is poor; miscalculation of forecasts, misalignment of multiple changes is repeated year in year out, this effects staff morale and
    Public trust which often leads to high pressure on staff from managers, MPs, solicitors, the public etc.

    Advice to Management

    Lessons learned policies are largely ignored, staff want to just get on with their job and do it well. You should consider ditching the chase for meaningless awards like investors in people.
