    What do you deem to be a better sector to have a career in? Public or Private and for what reasons? Do you think there are any differences between people who work in either areas and would you like your friends/partner to work in a particular one.

    I for one would rather work in the private sector as it seems more interesting to me and I also don't want a job where I have to answer to the fools in parliament, I certainly don't want them controlling my paycheck...

    Apparently the public sector generally has far more red tape, so that could get annoying. I heard about an IT company that charge the NHS more than private companies because of all the bureaucracy they have to work around.

    I'd say public sector as it seems that those with a 2:2 (like myself) seem to find looking for work a lot easier than those looking in the private sector.

    Having worked in both I'd say the Public sector. The earnings ceiling is much lower but I find the atmosphere much better. I don't feel like people are out to get me in the public sector!

    Depends what for, but mostly the private sector. This countries public sector is already too big :P we need some more wealth-creation.

    I will never work in the public sector, ever. I could never live with myself knowing that I was a parasite.
