I have been working at Financial Services Authority full-time (More than 3 years)

Pros

Insight into regulation
Contact with industry at a senior level
Influence future direction of industry (depending on role)
Supportive colleagues
Good benefits (aside from core salary)

Cons

Salary not really competitive
Lots of process
Silo mentality can get annoying
Constant negativity from certain parts of industry (who should look in the mirror really)

Advice to Management

Break down the silos
Keep your egos in check - the organisation's objectives are more important than your personal prejudices

    Pros

    Public service in an interesting and challenging environment. Opportunities to move into very different roles, eg. legal to policy. Focus on training and development. Good prospects for employment after.

    Cons

    Very centralised and hierarchical management structure, resulting in bureaucracy and lack of empowerment. Right now it is going through a lot of externally imposed change.
