I worked at The Department for Education (UK)

Pros

There is a opportunity for progression for those that want to. The department is very pro family and encourages a healthy work life balance.

Cons

The department is very bureaucratic and this can be very frustrating.

    I have been working at The Department for Education (UK) full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Good atmosphere, work life balance, training and development opportunities; supportive managers

    Cons

    A recent review has brought in some changes, including worse terms and conditions for promotees, a 'not enough desks' policy and a reduction in staff without a reduction in deliverables.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Things like increasing working hours from 36 to 37 hours a week won't get any more work out of staff - if anything, you'll get less work.
