Pros

- Great salary offerings compared to other APS departments/agencies; - Great organisation working towards a common cause; - Very good and empathetic people to work with;

Cons

- Particularly in areas involving ICT, this has unfortunately been outsourced to a worse Department as a cost-cutting exercise, and the staff have to put up with a degradation of ICT support as part of their working conditions. - Highly conservative culture (but that goes without saying).

Advice to Management

Partnering with DHS for outsourced ICT was/is a big mistake. Shame, cause there's some really good people working for DVA.

Great organisation working towards a common cause;
