    I worked at Her Majesty's Revenue & Customs

    Pros

    The time was flexi-time so you could take up to three days off in a month without taking it off of your annual leave so long as you built up the hours on top of your core 36 hour week.

    Cons

    Some people were lazy as in the public sector there is no company owner or corporate suit to keep all in line.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Would be better if the hard work of employees is noticed and those who sit at their desk and pretend to work all day should be spoken to

    I worked at Her Majesty's Revenue & Customs

    Pros

    The experience you gain looks good on your CV. You do quite a broad variety of work so gain experience in all of the steps required to prepare for hearings. There's a admin support team which saves you doing a lot of photocopying.

    Cons

    The working atmosphere is really unfriendly and unpleasant. Certain lawyers feel they are too superior to talk to paralegals. There is a clear divide in the office and the general morale is low. There are many problems in this team which need to be addressed. Staff turn-over is extremely high.

    I have been working at Her Majesty's Revenue & Customs full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Work life balance is excellent, pay is not too bad, opportunity to work with Ministers

    Cons

    Morale is low and overall culture is too relaxed and undemanding, strong likelihood of pay freeze and reduction in other benefits

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Focus on better training for middle management and resist the constant move towards centralised control

    I worked at Her Majesty's Revenue & Customs

    Pros

    Lots of employees - easy to hide and not do much work. Good time off policy too. People were not bad.

    Cons

    The company is obsessed with LEAN management and refining processes. I wish management would just leave things are they are not not change things for the worse!
