    Positive Outlook

    I have been working at Cabinet Office UK full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    Interesting work that has direct relevance to UK society. Unique position allows you to see how the centre of Government works. Sense of involvement in the big issues of the day. Importance of work-life balance clearly acknowledged, and flexible working easy to arrange (although see cons below). Sense of job security allows you to not worry about always having a backup. Variety of work also helps to keep the job interesting - no two days are the same.

    Cons

    Relentless pace is exciting but can also be very stressful. Further work needed to improve diversity. A good work-life balance possible in theory, but in practice during busy periods people still work long hours and at weekends, particularly at more senior levels. Lack of structure and senior bandwidth can be frustrating.
