    Disapproves of CEO

    I worked at Home Office full-time for more than 10 years

    Pros

    They have flexible working hours, so you can start at 7:30am and finish at 3:45pm.

    Cons

    Dispute the Home Office promoting diversity it is an extremely bigoted organisation where bullying does take place within the workplace. Rules are bent by management, who regularly work from home without informing staff and work from home over the limit they are supposed to. Management also had no idea with regards to the actual work the juniors grades did. The Home Office has double standards and is not very well organised.
