    I worked at IDA

    Pros

    Usual government board benefits. SOP, standard practices. Trying to inject new ideas to keep up with IT industry and to bring in younger employees.

    Cons

    Usual government board practices. Regimental and stringent practices. Too many senior citizens hanging around and passing time. Leaving a gap in middle age group (late 20s to 30s). Young or fresh employees are really on on-the-job-training.

    Changes to title take too long to incentivise staff.
