If you don't care about immediate financial gain and would rather have a pension/retirement next to no other!

Tax Auditor (Current Employee)
Winnipeg, MB (Canada)

I have been working at Canada Revenue Agency

ProsPension is second to none, can retire at 55 with 60% of your salary minimum for the rest of your life indexed to inflation. Vacation time, benefits are huge. Compressed/flexible work hours are very, very good.

ConsCompetence of senior management is absolutely abysmal. All the red tape of working for the government. Promotion goes to 'pet' employees or visible minorities. White men 30-50 are no longer promoted even if they are the best one for the job. Pay for professionals is significantly below the private industry standards now. Pay however for secretarial and administrative jobs is above the private industry standards still.

Advice to Senior ManagementRecognize the efforts of your employees more. Senior management really needs to get a clue about what their subordinates are actually doing in their work environment.

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend
