    Pros

    Diversity; professional accounting training; friendly co-workers; lack of office politics; okay remuneration; good work ethic; internal staff networks for all types of people; good moral compass

    Cons

    It's about to be abolished; working there wasn't as cut & thrust as being in a firm; very-shortsighted - ie. employees think the local government world and public sector world revolves around them - it doesn't.

    Advice to Management

    Sort out the bullying culture. You say it doesn't exist but it does. I have very close friends who have been forced out because of bullying management and noone ever acts. Though, most have them have now left the Commission with massive payouts.

    Pros

    Interesting work, bright colleagues, worthwhile work.

    Cons

    Seemed to become more concerned about compliance than purpose.

    Advice to Management

    The audit practice needs to realise the limits to the value buyers place on audit. It's something they have to have. The practice needs to develop more things they want to have and sell them.

    Pros

    The Training package offerred is good.This is if you are passionate about working for the public sector. They pay you to do a CIPFA qualification that lasts for four years. Good pay package. Good work life balance. They also pay for your travel i.e. an oyster card if you're in London and company car if outside of London.

    Cons

    Poor working environment, working in small teams, not meeting many of the other colleagues. Not so nice office conditions. Also, the CIPFA qualification is too long and should only last for three years.

    Advice to Management

    Advertise the company's recruitment website more vigorously.
