I have been working at Innovate UK full-time

Pros

Close to where I live
If you are a butt kisser you will go far
Supposedly the benefits, but other civil service orgs have better

Cons

No career prospects
Not valued for experience
Not listened to when have opinion based on experience
Serious bullying from senior managers
No care about health and well being
Ineffective HR department, don't even deal with serious breaches of conduct, just have informal meetings and expect things to 'go away'
Don't uphold civil service principles of honesty and integrity
Do not know how to help or protect staff - if you raise an issue you are the problem
No autonomy
Favourites get away with anything (good luck if you are one of these)
If you have a brain, balls or creativity you will have you soul sucked from you
You will feel like you are back at school...

Advice to Management

Maybe you should learn from other government departments how they treat their employees, this is the worst culture in an organisation I have ever been in. Given bullying happens from the highest level, some people really need to look in the mirror.

    Nothing bad to say really!
