I have been working at Cabinet Office full-time (Less than a year)
Nice Parliament Street office with canteens
Diversity is lacking
Short notice deadlines (less than 2 hours at times)
Poor management (some managers have poor interpersonal skills and are not 'born to lead')
Poor communication between teams across Cabinet Office
Lack of transparency about how things are done and who people are (you could be talking to a senior and you wouldn't even know because some people avoid using their email signature)
A lot of work for relatively low pay
Advice to Management
Familiarise yourself with your teams and their working environments.
Be respectful of your employees' time - understand that they have lives outside of work and cannot jump to meet deadlines that you have poorly planned.
Tell staff across Cabinet Office to engage with eachother about issues - at the moment you are facilitating a culture of 'escalation' before things have been discussed between staff at the same level and this is a breeding ground for contention and ill feeling.
I submitted a basic CV and went through one interview.
It was fixed.
