    I have been working at DFID full-time

    Pros

    Flexible working hours, part time working and job shares

    Cons

    Internal transfers difficult, inexperienced line managers.

    Advice to Management

    Line managers need to be sufficiently trained and experienced. Kids straight out of uni should not be managing experienced members of staff regardless of them being in the grade above.
