      Pros

      Fantastic international exposure and extensive learning & development opportunities. Real sense of working to support a worthwhile mission. Multi-sector and growth stage exposure.

      Cons

      Very little or no commercial/private sector experience at senior management level results in stagnant, public sector lifer approach to risk taking and innovation.

      Standard public sector problems: Some colleagues who've been in the same role for too long or aren't motivated or are being wasted. Budget cuts lead to more and more restrictions.
