Pros & Cons

  • Very friendly and helpful team members
  • Flexible working conditions (work from home). Working with modern technology stacks. Friendly people. Great office facilities with central office location. Casual clothes (jeans, t-shirts) is acceptable to wear. Good vision to transform government.
  • The opportunity to work on solving problems that have the potential to influence the entire country.
  • Lots of learning opportunities are provided for the employees. The work environment is so ethical.
  • Purchased training and paid study time. Working with capable people (learning from those more experienced). Management takes an interest in my professional goals.
  • Slow progress with areas such as policies, resources or the environment resulting from such ambitious projects.
  • The IT section being geographically separated from the policy section. This has proven to be a challenge whilst a grad.
  • Small department and more individual task
  • Red tape in government and restrictive budget conditions placed on the department.
  • Salary progression is slow

The pay is decent for the professional but still not as good as private. The advantage lies in the working conditions. To advance in pay and opportunity is sometimes a luck of the draw. It can be difficult to progress if there's no position available.

I don't think there's any initiative that I'm aware of which speaks of the organisation trying to reduce their carbon footprint.
