    Pros

    The people are very friendly, and location is pretty good as well. Enriching experience within the public sector, and you get to interact with other agencies quite a bit as well.

    Cons

    Not very much to say here other than the fact that a lot of the initiatives and projects usually don't yield short term results, but that is pretty standard across most public sector policy-focussed agencies.

    Pros

    People are nice. There are pro-family initiatives. Activities/events happening on a frequent basis to make the workplace more fun. Open working environment, encourages collaborations between departments

    Cons

    Long meetings. Need to have good writing skills. Quite a bit of ding-donging --> work gets dragged on. It may be okay for someone who wants to have a stable working environment. But for someone who wants to move up the ladder, it is not a suitable place.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Make meetings fast and to-the-point

    It's a great place to be at, with pro-worker/family initiatives and nice working environment.
