    I have been working at AGLC full-time

    Pros

    Larger organisation with room for advancement. Comprehensive benefits package and pension available. In a modernization period so there is a lot of interesting work going on.

    Cons

    The AGLC is public service so the pace can be a bit slower than working in private industry. Follows the economic cycle of the government, so limited budget in recession.

    Approves of CEO

    I worked at AGLC as an intern (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Culture of mentoring and providing training to junior employees. Was a very relaxed environment which allowed for the employees to give their full effort without someone looking over their shoulder.

    Cons

    Because it is a government operation, projects tend to take a long time to get approved and completed. This lead to employees with nothing to do in between projects.

    Advice to Management

    More foresight into projects so that the time in between projects is kept to a minimum. Continue with the positive mentoring and training you provide to your employees.
