Good work place
Work is quite rewarding as it is relevant in time with current happenings. Good opportunities to apply for internal roles too. Pay is okay but doesn't increase unless you apply for another job on promotion

Interesting roles but stressful due to political content
I've worked here 22 years, joining soon after graduation. There is a clear development pathway for those keen to progress and lots of opportunities to attend training. However, the stressful nature of most jobs, particularly once you get to team leader level, make ot quite a toxic culture now. Don't apply to work here of you like a slow and steady pace. It's common to start work at 9am and be hit with three or four unexpected pieces of briefing to do for government ministers or press office, or a central coordination team, all before mod day. When they ask you at interview if you xan prioritise your time or of you can evidence ability to deliver at pace, they are sussing out whether you can handle 10 minute deadlines or people asking you to deliver lots of conflicting deadlines. Be warned.....stress levels are high here. They have a good wellbeing offer to staff but it's because they need to in order to offset those staff who are on long term sick leave due to high levels of stress.

Great pay but that's about it
If all you care about is the pay and you can handle constantly being critiqued then this is the job for you. But if you're looking for a job that actually cares about you and values you as a person, don't work here. The individual people are nice but the managers only care about performance, even if it destroys you mentally due to the extreme workload that never gives up. The managers set bad examples of how to work and then complain when you do as they do.You are always busy with extra tasks being given to you with no extra pay and no recognition. They will take advantage of you if you work hard.
