Don't join for the money
Finance Manager (Current Employee) –  Milton KeynesJuly 2, 2018
Need I say more than the title. You won't get promoted quickly nor will you be recognised for your efforts. The work place is too bureaucratic and you have to climb over so many hurdles to do the simplest things.

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.
