The staff benefits were excellent- flexi time, free massages, paid volunteer days etc. However the employees were miserable, stuck up and forever moaning about the workload (which was if anything too little). Management would consistently complain about her team to other colleagues while the team could hear, it wasn’t great for morale.
Pros
Staff Benefits, Civil Service Internal Careers Access
Cons
Colleagues and Management

I learned most of my trade at companies house as i spent 13 years there.

A normal day would be dealing with customers to help them set up companies, deal with email complaints and many other general office work.

Fun work place with unsupportive management. Not all about numbers but how you grow and develop personally. Decent amount of red tape and politics but this is expected in the Civil Service.

This was an enjoyable job at the time I left school as I loved using tools and making things. I would wind heating elements and I was one of the first people in the country to use whats called a High Density Machine, that had been brought over from America to help us to wind small heating elements.
Pros
2 straight weeks off in the summer

My temporary job would consist of working shifts and there was no flexible time you had to be on time or you would have a bad mark. I learned about how companies are formed in companies house and all the different forms that were required in order to set up a limited company
Pros
Close to home
Cons
long hours
