Indeed featured review

The most useful review selected by Indeed
I have incredible experience at work, excellent management & workplace culture. Very helpful colleagues. To adjust with different culture people was quite difficult initially, afterwards, It was fun to know people globally.

A great place to work

Despite a chaotic transition (still in progress) from one agency type to another this is a great place to work with lovely people, excellent benefits and great support.

Great company to work for, shame it won't last

The Forestry Commission as it currently exists is a great company to work for. Everyone is friendly and helpful, it's like being part of a group of friends working on something together. However due to the Country split, the Forestry Commission as it stands will cease to exist soon, and I think the new company will become like many others and will be a sterile and non-personal one to work for.

Pros

Flexi time.

Cons

Morale currently low due to division.
