    Pros

    Varied and gives you a lot of responsibility. If doing international work get opportunity to travel

    Cons

    Pay and pension conditions have been severely eroded over the years. Expected to do long hours with no equivalent renumeration.

    Advice to Management

    Need to be more visible to staff and ensure that they feel included and understand their contribution and value to the overall department objectives particularly with further cost cutting on the horizon.
