No doubt about the public sector is full of a serious amount of arseh*les full of their own importance and would not last 5 mins in the private sector. To them their job is crap but none of them will leave because they know if they went somewhere else they might have to work.
My 'welcome to the public sector' moment was when I asked one of my department members to do something one day and they turned around and said that it was not in their job description so they refused to do it.
I always thought it was a myth, that the public sector is where you want your career to end up? What # of hols are we talking compared to private sector? Generally private is 25 plus bank hols etc.
I would get 28, plus a nicer pension and sick pay than probably 95% of private sector.
