    I have been working at London Borough of Camden full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Camden is an extremely diverse, driven and friendly atmosphere to work in. There have been opportunities for progression, which I have several times over a short period, and great guidance from those above and around me.

    Cons

    Honestly, so far none. I've been here for 2 years and plan to be here for longer, as long as opportunities to progress keep arising.

    I have been working at London Borough of Camden full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Agile/flexible working is excellent, your laptop is your office so you can work from anywhere. Good people, and it's nice to be making a difference instead of a profit.

    Cons

    Can be risk averse at times, so a slower pace of change than you might find elsewhere. Some politics, though not as much as you might think.

    Pros

    Overall the London Borough of Camden is a great place to work, in my experience all the people I have had contact with have been supportive, I have had access to new technology & training.

    Cons

    Commuting to work has always been a grim experience.

    Current Employee - Anonymous Employee

    Pros

    Located at the newly developed and highly rated Kings Cross St.Pancras Square area.

    Cons

    Very low pay for workers, this is especially a problem being that the location is in Zone 1. - Advise, apply if local, not if you travel from outside zone 2 I would say.
