A beautiful impressive environment to work at and learn excellent skills from some of the best in the field ...but ...
Commercial lead (Former Employee) –  LondonJuly 13, 2019
Ample opportunities for development and career progress if start working FCO in young age ...going through ranks but not the best place for mid level career enteries ...it takes time to progress and sometimes so slow one may need to change path after all.
Extremtly intelligent, ambitious environment with highly capable and talented resources ...in right teams you go up and progress so well. In wrong teams ...it is boring at the very best.
Pros
Ample opportunities for development but not quickly enough to transition
Cons
Very low paid - as most civil service bodies are.

Great place to work. Never had a better job or environment to work in. The people were great and the hours good. The pay I miss more then the job but when it’s good pay you can’t knock it
