Administration Assistant in Sydney NSW

Not very great
Competitive environment, nepotism is rife within the agency. Unable to progress unless you are great friends with a supervisor or anyone higher than that.

Ato is inefficiently run and devoid of ethics
ATO uses redundant software for its work that makes small tasks labour intensive. When I arrived I found a flaw in one of its practises and approached management with a solution. They accepted my proposal which was relatively easy to fix and would halve the workload. However, in the 18 months that I was there, despite my applying reminders about the change which other states had adopted, the change never happened. When I queried this I was told repeatedly that the ATO is resistant to change.

Fun place andinterestingplace to work
I worked there for 3 years I enjoyed my experience there really nice staff and helpful also.Lovely office. Would of liked to be a permanent position. Did courses online so there was training although being a contractor through an agency to have performance reviews was stressful. I was a Switchboard Operator and enjoyed working in a call centre environment had to answer a high volume of calls spoke to some interesting people.

Tax Auditor in Penrith NSW
on 3 May 2022
Not a good place to work
If you love following meaningless direction that requires you abandon common sense and that is presented in what barely passes as English by managers who got promoted due to their ethnicity rather than capabilities, then this is the role for you. You may be left scratching your head trying to work out job expectations after being inducted and provided with the icare acronym, however you shouldn't be concerned, as the higher your position is, the less anyone is expected to act according to the values and ideals the acronym represents. Expect to be told to: "Do as I say now I'm in a position higher than you, not as I did, when I was in your position."
