bad pay, no promotion prospects, politicians! Lack of moral among colleagues, constant risk aversion and uncertainty.

Look at the level of staff turnover and think that this reflects very badly on the institution.

    Pros

    One in a lifetime opportunity to work in a project of such a scale

    Cons

    Bonus compared to Banks in the City is very low

    Advice to Management

    More clarity upfront on length of the project would have been preferred

    Pros

    - Front row seat to national and international events
    - Important responsibilities with the opportunity to shape and influence policy dialogue
    - Surrounded by great energy and talent
    - Learning opportunities (through work and training) are good
    - Career growth prospects well within reach, especially if you turn to other government departments afterwards.

    Cons

    - Work/life balance is often atrocious. Very fast pace of work means that prioritization has to be ruthless.
    - Compensation system is one of the lowest in the whole of HM Government, leading to high turnover.
    - Despite very competent leadership and supervision, and despite the abundant talent and unquestionable brainpower of the staff, it's a very young environment - much younger, at least, than you'd expect from one of the government departments with the most pivotal roles.
    - The performance evaluation system is relative to your peers, rather than based on your absolute performance, which more often than not results in an unusually competitive work environment

    Advice to Management

    - Improve the compensation package
    - Reinforce work life balance like you mean it
    - Continue to improve the incentives and reward system of the performance evaluation system.
