    I have been working at HM Treasury full-time

    Pros

    In particular for people interested in politics, the work is very engaging being at the heart of government. Your exposure as a junior is the kind which would take you 20 years to have in the private sector. Amazing work/life balance through use of flexi-leave (essentially you get every minute worked, back in holiday)

    Cons

    Sometimes quite slow pace and so some people may not like it if they are used to constant high pace atmosphere.

    Advice to Management

    you're doing a good job!
