    I worked at Office for National Statistics part-time (less than a year)

    Pros

    Brilliant company to work for, massively target driven with good communication throughout the whole organisation. Lots of personal support given to ensure everyone achieves their own goals.

    Cons

    A lot of administrative work to be done e.g. spreadsheets, inputting data. A lot of emailing between team members and head of teams was required on a daily basis.

    I have been working at Office for National Statistics as a contractor (less than a year)

    Pros

    Easy work. Training fairly good.

    Cons

    No money available to hire space for team meetings so there was no real 'team' just individual working.
    Census Coordinator didn't seem to know some aspects of his job.
    Really boring sometimes.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Make money available for local teams to hire space for team meetings. Ensure people in a coordination or management position know their role well.

    I worked at Office for National Statistics full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    Working as a apart of a team with broad range of experiences and background made the job both enjoyable and manageable.

    Cons

    At times the field operation felt slightly isolated as I had to manage a team without a fixed office.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep encouraging your staff to work autonomously and drawing on resources such as networks of other managers and teams.
