What is the best or worst thing about the benefits package at Department for Work And Pension
Great team and flexible working
Health, hassra discount. Good employee support team to help with a variety of issues. Transport passes also with discount was helpful
Flexible hours and part year working hours.
The worst thing is the constant erosion of benefits and work life balance thanks to the new pay deal and the fact that to get progression you now have to agree to sacrifice paid sick leave. Apart from anything else this is indirect discrimination against disabled staff who are more likely to need the sick leave.
Flexible hours are great, good recreation association and option to join Benenden Healthcare. Performance pay has changed this year from an individual to team bonus which is not good.
Flexible working is by far the best benefit. Strolling in whenever you feel ready in the morning, or early afternoon, is very handy. Plus, if you work longer hours, you can keep banking the extra time and have a few days off further down the line. Nice.
The lack of monetary value
Super place to work, very friendly and profession and take pride in what they do. Very nice atmosphere too
The department does not offer private health pension, there are how some you can buy into.
