Typical government department

Service Manager (Current Employee)
London, England (UK)

I have been working at Home Office full-time for more than 3 years

ProsLots of support for maintaining work/life balance, training and ongonig development is good, opportunities for moving to different roles if you play the game right

ConsObviously it's very political, some decisions are set by ministers so you have no input, salary progression is limited, there is a media/social stigma to being a civil servant.

Advice to Senior ManagementTrust your staff more, take more responsibility for your area of concern and actually stand up to suppliers - they need us more than we need them!

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend

Working in a home-based job solutions can help your family and children.

Office Manager (Current Employee)
New Cebu (Philippines)

I have been working at Home Office part-time for less than a year

ProsOne of the best reasons why working in the home office is best for me because you don't have to spend any money in the fare, gasoline, food and deal with the traffic jam vehicles outside. You save a lot of money in doing this.

ConsSome that make you down sometimes is that you need to go out sometimes for your basic needs for you to choose what you want to buy but you can't make it because you doesn't have enough money to spend for.

Advice to Senior ManagementSome advices is that they should provide a salary with a home office job so that they can also move and improve their selves in working the environment. Or else no one will work with them anymore.

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company
