I worked at Canada Revenue Agency as an intern for less than a year

Pros

The people are great - you really get to know the people you work with, and the potlucks are fun. The work is very interesting - you are responsible for quite a bit from the beginning. Hours are standard, which is great since there's no overtime

Cons

Bad/inefficient work flow/distribution. There's always a lot of work to be done, but the way it is distributed to employees needs to be fixed. There was a whole month that I basically had nothing to do, and days were pretty boring because you have very limited internet access

Advice to ManagementAdvice

The basic structure of how work is done really needs to be changed. It certainly proves the government's reputation as being slow and inefficient
