    I have been working at Companies House full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Supportive, dynamic environment that breaks the stereotype of the Civil Service being stuffy and boring. Great people to work with and you feel valued from day one. Benefits package is fantastic - flexible working hours, 30 days annual leave, great pension.

    Cons

    Civil Service pay scales aren't great but the benefits more than make up for this. No major cons that I can think of.

    Advice to Management

    Keep investing in your people and empowering them to help shape the future of the organisation.

    I have been working at Companies House full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    Great family friendly policies - flexi, mobile working and generous annual leave. Very forward thinking with a willingness to embrace change. Friendly and welcoming culture.

    Cons

    None that I can think of - the overall benefits package outweighs the Civil Service pay cap/progression issues.

    I worked at Companies House full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Good benefits package. Unfortunately the pay rates are low, even compared to comparable grades in other civil service departments in South Wales.

    Cons

    You will be fine if your face fits. If they take a dislike to you, they can be quite ruthless in making sure you leave. Best to keep your head down and your mouth shut.

    Advice to Management

    Try and live the values you talk about.
