I have been working at Natural England full-time for more than 10 years
Pros – meet with wide range of public, learning opportunities, a wide range of enviromental issues to learn and deal with, good pension although that is getting worse under David Cameron
Cons – administration, lots of time spent at computer, some people have jobs concerned with measuring performance rather than being public facing, putting pressure on the latter
Advice to Senior Management – too many tasks, too little time to manage staff
Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend

I worked at Natural England full-time for more than a year
Pros – Bonus yearly payment, health and life insurance and produce benefit for employees.
Cons – Did not pay bonus, Company location, monthly payment system and extended job hours.
Advice to Senior Management – In this level of administration requires scholarship people, but in this case they did not. This limited our professional development.
No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company

I worked at Natural England
Pros – Flexible working arrangements. The people working care about doing a good job, and are very supportive towards each other. The company makes every effort to ensure its staff have a good workign environment.
Cons – A hugely bloated organisation with no real well defined direction and very limited powers. The company expanded massively under a government intent on getting everyone employed in the public sector, which gave NE a masive sense of its own importance, as it decided it wanted to become a government department as opposed to an advisory body.
Far too much management speak from senior managers. 95% of the work is just a box ticking exercise.
Advice to Senior Management – Do not place the talent in your employees into silos. Just because some people work in one department, they often have cross-cutting expertise in another.
