    Pros

    As a working mum of 4 this employer is a very family friendly place. They are generous on holidays, flexi-time and have options of doing term time (depending on business needs). The managers have progress meetings with individual staff once a month so together you can set personal targets and goals. Most office locations are not within the city so savings can be made on commute.

    Cons

    The down side to working here is that the work is repetitive and boredom can set in. Moving around to other business sections i.e from jobcentre to the marketing department is very few and far between. The skills that you use within the jobcentre plus are hard to transfer to other jobs outside the DWP so the possibilities of getting stuck within the DWP is high. Changes happen frequently and senior management/government doesn't allow sufficient time for change management to happen.

    Advice to Management

    Change management is a problem, staff need sufficient time to adjust to changes before they change again. This often leaves us looking incompetent infront of customers and often leads to misinformation being given, decreasing customer service levels.
