Some people (historically known industry group) taking advantage of the low-paid permanent role that actually isn't permanent at all and highly intensive work pressure that nowhere matches the salary.If you look back 10-15 years ago and compare it with the current situation you will feel the labor market in "England" is just abused and ruined. Families who didn't migrate away are just struggling. The same thing happening in most of the civil service and the overall job market nowadays in "England". They are driven by the same industry group.Public sector funds should have been used in a better way.
Pros
Understandably a good culture that is slowly eroding but still good for freshers.
Cons
Mostly misguided; highly deliberate; biased; inefficient use of public money;

GDS is a startup in the heart of government that brings strong service design to user needs to deliver better, more effective digital services to people from every walk of life. I really enjoyed the sense of achievement you got to see when real people used what you'd built. Overall a great working culture with a lot of excellent people focussed on trying to make the world a better place.

The challenge to re-do all of the Government's online services is an immense and interesting one. There are people there doing a fine job.
