Would appreciate the inputs of people in the know. Preferably people who have recently joined the services, ex Civil Servants would also do. Basically what is a regular day at work like, what are the benefits , how soon does disillusionment creep in, what hours are you expected to keep, is there enough work-life balance? Also help regarding any smart techniques for Mains prep would be welcome.
