I had a great job at the department however management changed and it turned into a toxic environment. Co-workers made the position bearable until I was subjected to "performance management" for a mental illness.
Pros
good job, lovely coworkers, good hours and pay
Cons

Durch die Hitze Australiens begann der Tag spätestens um 7 Uhr morgens. Die Zeit am Morgen wurde genutzt um auf den verschiedenen Weizenfeldern Proben zur Auswertung zu sammeln und zum Labor zu bringen. Durch verschiedenste Maschinen wurde im Labor festgestellt, welche Art von Weizen bei welchen Wetterbedingungen am besten gedeiht. Zu jeder Zeit wurde ich bei Fragen unterstützt, sowohl am Arbeitsplatz als auch Privat. Dieses Unternehmen ist sehr familiär und die Arebitsplatzkultur unbeschreiblich. Auch in stressigen Situationen mit Überforderung der Hitze wurden Aufgaben stehts freundlich und im Team gelöst. Gerade die Festgkeit des Teams hat diese Arbeitserfahrung einmalig gemacht.
Pros
Sehr gutes Gehalt
Cons
Hitze

The Department spans economic analysis, Big P policy development, programme management and regulatory compliance / operations/ service delivery. Building IT for a department like this is complicated and so success is even sweeter!

I will discuss with potential job opportunities about my current ambitions and the current duties I perform. Good management and a culture of hard honest team members.

This department has some great people working for it. As usual, the management and leadership of teams is integral in deciding whether you will work in a place that is great to work for or not. Opportunties for people with no agricultural background to become invested in australian industry.
Pros
Central CBD location

I joined this department and stayed there for 4years this was the worst department I had worked in in my public service career of 35 years. This department stifles innovation and change also sexist towards males and promoted nepotism.
Pros
None
Cons
harrassment and bullying

Work at export meat plant under minimal supervision with little or no back up whilst under extreme scrutiny by company management . the most enjoyable part of the job is the knowledge that you are doing your part in controlling a quality product is being produced for human consumption under the Australian standards. The hardest part of the job is the lack of support and back up from your department supervisors and department heads.

Pros
