Administrative Officer in Newcastle upon Tyne
Alright if you are needing a standard office hours job
Good place to work, a lot of great staff and support throughout. Upper management were not the best but line managers where great. A lot of adjustments through occupational health are done rapidly to support you.
Civil Servant in Doncaster
Productive, fast paced and enjoyable
Fairly busy on most days, lots of variety of jobs available on OSG duties, prisoner calls and mail to check, vehicle escort, reception, gate duties and more. On a day where it is a little more quiet it can be a welcomed break, things can get very busy very fast though so don’t expect a easy ride. Long breaks and pro longed when on some jobs such as vehicle escort. Prison sizing for uniform is ridiculous though. Had to go up 3 sizes as has many of my colleagues, that’s not great for self esteem but what can you do with that one! Can be long hours especially on your week of nights, but then you’re given the week off after whilst still being paid your salary so can’t complain really.
IT Manager in Telford, Shropshire
Managers are more interested in making noise than supporting and getting the job done. The lack of output is the proof. Worst thing is, they're effectively training the younger ones to be as amateurish as they are. No processes and easy enough to put them in. Blame culture. Untrustworthy. All the bad traits of a working environment.

Avoid at all costs.
Whilst HMRC is a large organisation with diverse departments, the general working environment is generally stressful. If you are unfortunate enough to be in a contact centre, then you can double that stress. Across the board, HMRC has incredibly poor man managers - despite a relatively recent damning report (try googling 'Respect at Work report'). It is rife with bullying, harassment and discrimination. The pay is disgraceful. In fact, if the government goes ahead with its plans to raise the minimum working wage in April '21 literally thousands of HMRC staff will have to have their pay uplifted in order to stay 'legal'. They state that your salary will be between £x and £x - forget the higher amount as you will never reach that (there is absolutely no progression within your grade, so what you start with, you stay with unless you try for promotion). I cannot emphasis enough how bad an employer HMRC is - oh, and you can forget a pay rise in the next 3 years, too, seeing as the government has no appreciation of the work you do, either.
Officer in Hull, East Riding of Yorkshire
Once a great place to work but in the last few years the culture of HMRC has finalised it's transformation into an awful organization.Poor pay, worse management, dull, monotonous work and endless backstabbing as people claw their way up the corporate ladder.
