    I worked at UK Civil Aviation Authority as a contractor

    Pros

    Some real pockets of aviation expertise still exist.
    A sense of professional pride in front line aviation services.

    Cons

    The org itself operates in an unregulated bubble, ignoring the ethos it serves up to the aviation industry.
    It is widely recognised around 6+ yrs ago the senior management team were brought into an already very effective, professional organisation and have steadily dismantled it, while squeezing it in all areas so as to justify their own highly inflated salaries and bonuses.
    Long term emps especially management are motivated by protecting their pensions rather than delivering business value.
    HR has a systematic pattern of covering up poor performance issues rather than investigating and addressing them for fear of the risk of casting the CAA in a poor light. Eg a manager allowed to create a role for and hire their mistress - clear gross misconduct in any other public sector organisation. HR mismanagement of sexual harassment by a senior - again should be treated as misconduct but the injured Party blamed. Corporate customers duped with false information. These are some of the cover ups I'm personally aware of so if a rock or two were turned the level of corruption would likely make the BBC look positively saintly.

    Advice to Management

    Perhaps a s the Americans say - "try your own dog food" rather than just selling it - i.e. Regulation. When something goes wrong, no need for a witch hunt, just acknowledge, investigate thoroughly, put things right where possible, and develop a culture of positive behaviour rather than encouraging 'creeps' by reinforcing their inappropriate behaviour by making it acceptable.
