Great place to work, training available to advance in your career. The work culture is welcoming. Easy to move around with jobs. Located centrally. Sometimes your DGs are not accomodating.

The unit I worked in was the Prime Minister's Implementation Unit, this was very competitive and a fast paced unit. Most people don't stay for longer than 2 years due to the level of intensity and because they used the unit as a stepping stone for higher positions in other departments.

Very interesting environment with lots of challenge. Complex Transactions has been created to advise other government departments and therefore operates on a similar basis to the big 4 Consultancies.

This was an excellent establishment to work for, and very exciting. Fast paced. Good team players. I really can’t say much more due to the location of this establishment.

Cabinet Office is an interesting place to work with opportunities far and wide in varied aspects of Govt work. Good benefits but salary could be increased to reflect cost of living in London.

Job culture
- Insufficient support for instances of bullying and harassment. Especially if the person concerned is your Line Manager. - Full of favourtism. Leaders promote who they want. - Constant changes to the structure of Unit. Changes swept under the carpet when they don't work out. - High turnover - have seen many people leave after a few months - Lack of diversity and few BAME staff. - Very hierarchical. - Poor IT systems. - Deadwood senior civil servants who think they are experts in everything because of a long stint in the civil service. - Waste of public money.
Pros
Centre of government - looks good on CV
Cons
Far too many - see description!

Great place if you had patronage, terrible for diversity. The BAME ceiling was very low and often condoned by underhanded sabotage. Bullying mindset firmly entrenched.
Pros
Kudos of working at centre of government
Cons
Poor working practices and a prime example of wasting public money through busy-ness

Administrative based role, consisting of answering calls and responding to emails whilst ensuring that all admin duties and processing has been kept up to date. Fun place to work with many different people from all walks of life and plenty of opportunities to progress and develop yourself.
