Featured Review

Current Freelancer - Security Officer

I have been working at Ministry of Justice UK for more than 8 years

Pros

I'm hard working, been in the Security industry 24 years, I'm a close protection officer, like team, good customer service.

Cons

I dont like people if they dont work as a team.

Current Employee - Lawyer

I have been working at Government Legal Department full-time for more than a year

Pros

The opportunity to be involved in advising Government on a range of legal matters that make news headlines, particularly Brexit-related work – you simply don’t get to work on these areas of law in... the private sector. There are also a range of family-friendly policies that support a positive work/life balance for all colleagues, along with generous leave allowance. Staff and line managers are really supportive, creating an inclusive and collaborative working environment. Professional development and progression within the organisation is actively encouraged – several recruitment exercises are held on an annual basis providing both promotion and development opportunities.

Cons

Although the public sector may not be able to rival the pay of City law firms, other benefits (including significant employer pension contributions) do alleviate this somewhat.
