    I have been working at Innovate UK full-time

    Pros

    Close to where I live If you are a butt kisser you will go far Supposedly the benefits, but other civil service orgs have better

    Cons

    No career prospects Not valued for experience Not listened to when have opinion based on experience Serious bullying from senior managers No care about health and well being Ineffective HR department, don't even deal with serious breaches of conduct, just have informal meetings and expect things to 'go away' Don't uphold civil service principles of honesty and integrity Do not know how to help or protect staff...

    Advice to Management

    Maybe you should learn from other government departments how they treat their employees, this is the worst culture in an organisation I have ever been in. Given bullying happens from the highest level, some people really need to look in the mirror.

    I worked at Innovate UK for less than a year

    Pros

    Nice people Interesting work Good Bistro Close to train station

    Cons

    Gaining access to the IT systems is confusing - too many points of contact to get access and then to get the right level of access and finally who to ask for help when problems occur dependent on where the issue is.

    Advice to Management

    Get a one point of contact who will own your request until completion rather than being passed from team to team
