    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 Management

    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.

    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 Management

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