“No stuffiness at least.”

Pros: One would think that working for any government would be a stuffy and uncomfortable affair including suits and ties and working extremely long hours. Well, this is not the case at The Scottish Government. There is an open and friendly atmosphere here and a lot to learn about the country and laws governing it. Makes for a very enlightening experience!

Cons: Unfortunately the salary is not the greatest and neither are the annual increases. There is also very little communication possible between worker and manager, making it increasingly difficult to negotiate pay packages and career development.

Unusual thing: Leave is easily negotiated! This makes having a family-life much easier.
