    Pros

    Get to see how the Government really works and how much of the work carried out is actually done by you. Great holiday benefits and flexible working patterns.

    Cons

    Very structured and grade dependent so exposure to higher level work at times limited. Rewards and pay always dependent on Government budgets.

  2. Compelling mission and good conditions

    Pros

    Benefits excellent: Flexi time, great training opportunities, easy to move into or out of part time, professional subscriptions paid, etc.
    High levels of responsibility at all levels.
    Mission makes the difference. You are often making a real difference to the country and its people.
    Lots of intelligent people can make it a stimulating environment to work within.

    Cons

    You'll not get rich, financially at least. Salaries are fair (especially at graduate entry and high grades) though not too competitive in between, especially for IT specialists.
    Can be quite bureaucratic, with particular ways to get stuff done.
