Work & Life Balance


Executive Assistant to General Manager in Melbourne VIC
on 24 March 2019
Great work life balance, good wages, no job security.
The Bureau is a very relaxed environment, indeed too relaxed to the point that many times work does not get completed as quickly as one would like to. Wages are okay.
Technology Consultant in Melbourne Docklands VIC
on 22 October 2020
Toxic culture, too much micro management and no trust in staff
I would not recommend working in the technology projects space at BOM, although there are many nice people there, the experience was horrible due to the mismanagement and pressure put on our team. Our team was tasked to deliver a range of work, but plans and deadlines were constantly shifting outside of our control. This resulted in the management teams putting pressure on us to deliver work and questioning what work had been done, without taking ownership or responsibility of the fact that they had postponed or changed the work that had been planned. There was a huge lack of clarity overall and there was little trust between the many layers of management and our team.People were regularly resigning and leaving the project and not keen to come back due to this problematic management from above, with people being treated like cattle rather than assets.
Project Manager, Public Services Transformation in Melbourne Docklands VIC
on 17 September 2020
Great place to work - people care about public service
Loved the BoM. Sadly covid budget cuts meant some of us contractors had to be let go. A really passionate place, and everyone cares about doing the right thing for the public. Daily weather briefings for all staff was interesting - learned a lot, there's more to the weather than you think. If you like science, you will like the BoM.
IT Officer in Hobart TAS
on 21 February 2019
a very dull place to work at as an IT officer. very bad management. Contract terminated before the actual end date. No training offered during the contract
Implementation, Change & Transition Manager in Melbourne, AU
on 12 December 2018
good place
The bureau is a good place to work at. It has a great work culture and the IT BAU and project teams work towards a common goal. The pay grades are also high ( especially for contractors) and the managers ensure that all the issues and conflicts are resolved in an amicable manner. Recommended
