Pros

Nice benefits package, safe working environment (people are are very well-behaved)

Cons

You see a lot of wasting of money and can not do anything about it. Things could be done better, but people are afraid to try. Little vacation time

Advice to ManagementAdvice

You have hired 'the best and the brightest', let them think and come up with the answers the country needs.

    Pros

    Good pay, good environment. It's not the greatest place for innovation or creativity - I felt a lot of my ideas and contributions were shot down.

    Cons

    Lazy people, government is axing employees at the moment, so low morale. It's a good job if you are used to the 9 to 5 work life.
