    Negative Outlook
    No Opinion of CEO

    I have been working at Her Majesty's Revenue & Customs full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    Their are some great people and the opportunity to move up to team leader positions comes around quite frequently

    Cons

    The job advert was in no way descriptive of the job I actually do and did not mention the fact that a majority of the work would be outbound. The pay is ok but could be better considering the amount of responsibility you are given. There is absolutely no training, any “training” is done through E-Learning so you then are forced to go live with no actual understanding of how the systems work

    Advice to Management

    Calm down
