    No Opinion of CEO

    I have been working at Home Office for more than a year

    Pros

    Making a difference to those that need genuine protection. The job has flexible working hours. Working with the public. Making effective decisions.

    Cons

    Despite employees leaving after being in the job for less than a year, nothing has been done to prevent this. The culture is to do a huge recruitment once numbers are really down, so every two years. Salary does not compensate for the time and work done, hugely underpaid.

    Pros

    Huge Workload You are left to get on with your own work

    Cons

    You always feel as if you are not doing enough. Always want you to take on more work without enough respect for the work that you actually do. Target Driven environment but focus on which particular work is best.
