    Pros

    Diversity; professional accounting training; friendly co-workers; lack of office politics; okay remuneration; good work ethic; internal staff networks for all types of people; good moral compass

    Cons

    It's about to be abolished; working there wasn't as cut & thrust as being in a firm; very-shortsighted - ie. employees think the local government world and public sector world revolves around them - it doesn't.

    Advice to Management

    Sort out the bullying culture. You say it doesn't exist but it does. I have very close friends who have been forced out because of bullying management and noone ever acts. Though, most have them have now left the Commission with massive payouts.
