Good civil service department overall

Policy Manager (Current Employee)
London, England (UK)

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

ProsReally 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.

ConsCuts 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 Senior ManagementTry and tackle long hours culture

Rats deserting a sinking ship

Policy Advisor (Former Employee)
London, England (UK)

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

ProsSome talented people remain in place

ConsMost 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

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company

Great job, but standards are slipping.

Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)

I have been working at Ministry of Justice UK full-time for more than 8 years

ProsInteresting work and I enjoy dealing with all different kinds of people. For these reasons usually everyday is different.

ConsSenior management where I work are very 'cliquey' the have their obvious favourites and almost shun everyone else. This does not instil any trust nor does it motivate you to do any extra - too many people are being turned off by this group of people which is a real shame.

Advice to Senior ManagementHQ Senior management should note my comments above - senior managers in my region should be reviewed and their HR decisions should be investigated.
