    I have been working at Met Office

    Pros

    Intelligent friendly people
    Generally a relaxed place to work
    The work is mostly interesting
    Plenty of options to work from home or take flexitime
    World leading research organization

    Cons

    Noisy open plan office space
    Very uncompetitive pay
    Could be seen a something of a career dead end, there are no real competitors

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Stop wasting time on websites telling us how to work or to generate ideas, just pay people more and let them get on with it.

    A great place with some great people, but severely let down by extremely low pay.

    I have been working at Met Office

    Pros

    Everyone has heard of the Met Office.
    The work is usually very interesting.
    To be part of something truly world class.
    A nice office building.

    Cons

    Pay is low.
    Pay progression is practically non-existent.
    You have to put up with increasing amounts of Lime Green in day to day work life.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Sort out the pay and everything else will suddenly fix itself.
