    Pros

    Pension and Civil Service Learning

    Cons

    Slow paced bureaucracy, reluctant to change with meetings for the sake of meetings.

    Advice to Management

    Review the competency of managers and get rid of 'dead wood'. Reduce the number of meetings to those that are going to be beneficial.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at MHRA (London, England (UK)) in November 2016.

    Interview

    I was contacted a couple of weeks after applying. The interview involved a 30 min written test and a panel interview that lasted about one hour. The interview was mostly competency-based, though some knowledge-based questions were also asked. The atmosphere was friendly and I would say the inteview was a positive experience.
