    I have been working at Cabinet Office full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Flexible working
    Reputation
    Nice laptop
    Nice Parliament Street office with canteens

    Cons

    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.
