I worked at Canada Revenue Agency

Pros

Salary is about 1 1/2 times what private sector will pay (29k Private vs. 43k Public), great benefits, management will help you during family emergencies, pension is awesome

Cons

I didn't really have any. If I had to gripe, I'd complain about the parking situation and the fact we have to PAY for parking; but on that salary I can afford it.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Continue to focus on career advancement with your teams and this will keep monotony due to the work (Collections) from creeping in. Keep being supportive on your team members as it certainly kept me motivated to great call reviews.

    Difficult - as CRA is often at the whim and whimsy of the political arm of government - ensure that more stable leadership is in place.

    I have been working at Canada Revenue Agency

    Pros

    They are very flexible with work/life balance. They are more than willing to develop you professionally. All my education/training is paid for. This year they paid over $7500 in training for me.

    Cons

    You won't become a manager unless you are bilingual/ Ie. you can speak English and French. Bilingualism is more essential than a professional designation such as a CA, CMA or CGA.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Drop the bilingualism criteria.
