“World leading research operation, interesting but career dead end”

Not only got the option of flexible working patterns but you can also work from home as well The people you work with are very bright and fun to be with The working environment is laid back and informal Most of the actual day to day work that we do is reasonably interesting It's great to know that you're working for a company that is a world leader in meteorological research

Remuneration is poor, and not in line with other industries The actual offices are far too noisy – the fact that it is open plan really doesn't help that There is nowhere to go in terms of career progression, not a proper ladder at the Met Office nor any other rival companies to defect to either. Management are out of touch and condescending

It's unusual working in an industry which doesn't really have any competitors

It maintains very close ties with the UK Government and the general public through its connections with the BBC and its role in natural disaster contingency. The Met Office has over 60 locations throughout the world and connection with the wider family of National Weather Services so that global coverage of weather and climate elements can be maintained 24/7. The Met Office is part of the Department for Business, Innovation and Science, operating with strong business ethos. It is recognised as one of the world’s most accurate forecasters, using over 10 million weather observations a day, an advanced atmospheric model and a high performance supercomputer to create 3,000 tailored forecasts and briefings a day.
