    I have been working at Ministry of Justice UK full-time (more than 10 years)

    Pros

    Really interesting and important work. You do feel that you can make a difference. Get to work on high profile projects which are often in the news. Great variety of areas to work in with many good opportunities available. Good bunch of colleagues who are friendly and sociable.

    Cons

    Cuts have settled down for now but a few under performers remain on the books. Long hours can become normal for some. Central office is beginning to feel overcrowded as more units move in from elsewhere.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Try and tackle long hours culture

    The public sector can be more efficient, people just do not work hard enough more needs to be done to reform the system.

    I worked at Ministry of Justice UK full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    Some talented people remain in place

    Cons

    Most people who were able to find a better job have left this sinking ship. Recent changes in the ministerial offices, and a conservative agenda that has forced unsustainable cuts, have left this department a shadow of its former self
