    I have been working at Home Office full-time

    Pros

    Flexible Working hours. Many Sections will consider compressed hours or working from home opportunities. Opportunities to take responsibility for large projects and gain valuable expereince that benefits in developing competencies for promotion. Many units within Immigration have annualised hours working. This gives a percentage of your salary for unsociable hours working.

    Cons

    Entirely dependant on where you are based and job function. Try to speak to someone within the team you intend to join for advice on working hours to make sure it is the right fit for you. Immigration Enforcement can be early starts and working extra hours may be necessary.

    I worked at Home Office full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Salary is reasonable. It's interesting work. The hours give a work life balance and leave, sick and benefits policies are very good. It's a diverse mix of employees and the teams can be quite social.

    Cons

    Government bureaucracy. Sometimes you have to jump through hoops just to make one small change. They have complex internal systems for recording everything you do and the IT is quite poor.
