    Current Employee - CIVIL SERVANT - GRADE 7 in London, England (UK)

    I have been working at Civil Service United Kingdom full-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    Work on interesting things that really matter
    Jobs that simply do not exist in the private sector
    Get to understand how decisions are made in government and see the other side of the news
    Potential for huge variety of jobs
    Work with some very talented, passionate people
    Flexible working conditions, reasonable work-life balance (depending where you work)

    Cons

    Limited autonomy even at senior levels - less influence on policy that you might expect
    Lack of respect from the people we serve - ministers and the public
    Lack of structured career progression - emphasis still more on breadth of experience than genuine expertise
    Abusive performance management system
    Stagnant pay - lower than everywhere else in public and private sectors for equivalent roles

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Foster genuine subject matter expertise and value your experts
    When you're copying private sector employment practices, look at how they make their staff feel valued, rather than how they make them afraid
    Live up to your values, speak truth to power, think longer-term, and look after your employees

    Negative Outlook
    Disapproves of CEO
