I have been working at Canada Revenue Agency

Pros

Very stress free. What can't be done today, will be done tomorrow.
Being permanent allows you to float through different areas in the agency.
Two guaranteed salary increases per year.
Insane amounts of vacation, sick, personal and volunteer leave.

Cons

Competency based Human ressource management. You cannot move up unless you pass a series of qualification tests, which are ambiguous and do not relate to the job.
Don't expect your pay to go through when you arrive. Some people wait up to 2-4 months to get their first pay due to the slow compensation area.
Work can be painstakingly boring.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Hire people based on their performance and skills, not on an ambiguous test that does not prove any potential skills.
