    Major Employer offers stability and challenge

    Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)

    ProsDiverse opportunities in a range of industry sectors Responsive to flexible working arrangements and work life balance goals. Both urban and rural workplaces and mobility encouraged. At the local level, scope to research led service delivery.

    ConsIt's government - there is red tape, cannot escape it. There is inconsistency in the quality of physical workspaces from outstanding to fairly appalling, and equally variable quality in management and leadership so once you are in the system its worth exploring opportunities to find a local work environment that suits you.

    Advice to Senior ManagementLearn to manage risk rather than be driven by (and constrained by) risk. Embrace creativity and new ideas and be brave enough to support the things that seem worthwhile even if they don't work first time.

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend

    This is where you go to die

    Statutory Valuer (Former Employee) Adelaide (Australia)

    ProsFlexible working environment in which you can take plenty of days off. The workload is pretty light, so you have plenty of time to focus on doing other things.

    ConsThe pay is 1/3rd of what you will get paid in the private sector. The workplace training is basic and you feel like they want to give you minimal training so you are useless to any other employer. They will promote people who are inappropriate for a senior position just because they cry when they don't get their own way and they have to fill the position anyway.

    Advice to Senior ManagementAll managers should at least have a degree in management so that they can deal with employee conflict and know the tricks that employees will use to get ahead.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend
