    Pros

    Currently working in Germany we do receive some additional allowances but the cost of living is more expensive anyway. The best thing is the fact that civil servants do not need to pay for housing or utility bills.

    Cons

    Poor pay
    No salary increases until 2015
    No recognition of IT skills
    Most IT jobs have been outsourced so no career progression or moving to other jobs
    Pensions and allowances always up for review due to cost cutting

    Advice to Management

    It is now probably too late to offer any good advice to management. The MoD is being torn apart by budget cuts and there is nothing that can be done.


  2. "A good Stop gap"
