My time at ASIC was interesting and a learning experience as it was a transfer of skills from Accounts services and Customer Services that I had done previously to doing Compliance checking and processing of payments and communicating with clients by phone or written communication.
My comparison of ASIC was they were a step up in IT atmosphere in regard to duties done to what I had been familiar with in any other environment.
Pros
Good Team working atmosphere and team working situations
Cons
Contract work and not knowing when contract may end

There are a lot of support towards Job Work/Life Balance and Job Security.

Management is very understanding of life outside of work and supports family responsibilities.

A great team to work with however Management were not supportive. Typical Federal Government mentality which resulted in a toxic job culture and staff struggling to remain positive.

ASIC was amazing place to work, being an EA to such an important person was such an honor and I gained so much experience during my time as EA.
The workplace was amazing and we all worked like clockwork together.

Pros

If you work outside of Sydney forget about ever being able to advance in your career in ANY of ASIC's work areas. The organisation's focus on customer service has sadly been lost in recent years.

In the beginning, a lot of opportunities for learning and development. This became less so over time. Trend was to do more with less staff. Management style tended to be more command and control rather than empowering individuals. Overall, I very much enjoyed my job at ASIC.

A typical day can never be written down as no two days are alike. Every day I faced new challenges that had to be met while existing work still needed to be completed.

Time challenges where often one of our biggest issues but no matter what we faced during the day, when I walked out at the end of each day I knew I had made a difference to the business and achieved positive results. The process may have been varied to get there but we did in the end make those deadlines.
Pros
Interesting work
Cons
Tight deadlines

Open plan office co-workers were generally great.

No flexibility for this particular position as desk sharing didn't allow starting time changes to fit in with school hours.


Very enjoyable.
Pros
Excellent Superannuation
Cons
Hot Desk 5 hour shift.
