  3. "My observations on the UKIP delegation"

    1.0
    Current Employee - Anonymous Employee 

    I have been working at European Parliament full-time

    Pros

    Note that these remarks are only about the UKIP delegation. The pros are offices, food, drinks, and the fact that the delegation is staffed mostly by stupid people, so intelligence stands out.

    Cons

    Note that these remarks are only about the UKIP delegation. The cons are pettiness, a stuttering ruin of a UKIP MEP who flunked out of Oxford, a contract manager who is as incompetent as her secretary is, a lack of adequate funds, and corruption.

  4. "Review of the EFDD Group in the European Parliament"

    1.0
    Current Employee - Anonymous Employee 

    I have been working at European Parliament full-time

    Pros

    The Italian delegation and intriguing guests, some of whom have provided invaluable insight on the root causes of the eurozone crisis

    Cons

    The British delegation; an unsuccessful secretary named Line; inept “administrators” who merely shuffle papers

  5. "Great job for 2/3 years"
