Doesn't Recommend

Pros

job security was always one but job cuts and redeployment not suited to employee now rule the day . service now looks to cost cut everywhere but where it should really be made.

Cons

lack of real inclusion especially if siting in provincial (non head office type )offices. Civil service often for politicla reasons has various sites. If you are not on the site where cheif mandarins sit (ie london) you do not matter. Do not get cream or important "contracts" and consequently non of the recognition

Advice to Management

Need to be more inclusive and less nepotistic with only opportunities for favoured staff arising as they by postion they are able to show they have carreer progression potential

    I worked at Civil Service United Kingdom full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Fantastic opportunities to work on a very broad range of challenging issues across the whole of Government. Lots of learning and development opportunities. I had a fantastic and varied 28 year career in the Civil Service.

    Cons

    The internal politics can be challenging. If your face fits and you're prepared to play the game you're fine, if not you have to work so much harder to get on. My experience was that some Civil Service leaders lack personal and professional integrity.
