    Pros

    I was lucky with the managers I had and the team around me but I loved my time at HS2 and developed enormously. Senior leaders were approachable and friendly and there was a flat working hierarchy which enabled development

    Cons

    Working with government department's can be tricky when elections change priorities but that is both a challenge and something that keeps the role interesting. Embrace change!
