Executive Officer in Leeds, West Yorkshire

Good work life balance but some lower grade roles are stressful
Some roles at AO and EO level can be stressful. Productivity isn't always great. Very frustrating levels of bureaucracy and everything takes way longer than it would in the private sector. Some great staff amd managers but also some very lazy employees and inexperienced bad managers. EO Decision makers are paid so much less than they should be considering the amount of work and stress in the role. No pay rise in over 10 years.However, the work life balance is good. Flexi time and casual dress code are good perks to have.

Target driven low training
You are not trained properly to do the job. There is a lot of case law etc to take on board. Interview preparation can last several hours, the interview itself can take several hours and then you are expected to write a decision asap. Decisions are often complex and are upto 15 pages long. You arent trained properly on how to write them but expected to deliver. You send these decisions to be checked often waiting weeks for feedback meanwhile youre interviewing and writing more decisions without adequate coaching. People trt hard but the system doesn't work.

Good, steady job
Flexible working, interesting work, job security but pay is not particularly great. There can be an atmosphere of cynicism and lethargy. Generally a good place to work.

Job security and flexible working
At the lower end, teams work to unachievable deadlines with harassed managers and staff trying to get twelve hours work out of an eight hour day. Sick leave and stress issues are prevalent, and upper management rides blithely over the top making noises about progress and staff wellbeing but achieving little.
