Consultant Planner (temporary contract) (Current Employee) –  Ryde NSW28 July 2017
This is an enjoyable place to work and I would recommend people applying for vacancies. My fellow colleagues are friendly and supportive, and there appears to be a reasonable degree of flexibility.

Internal Auditor (Former Employee) –  Ryde, NSW13 August 2015
Typical day at work:
- multi-tasking
- busy with 3- concurrent audit jobs

Lesson Learnt
- Ignorance of internal control excuses no one.
- one can rise up to high position without formal qualifications.
- good PR and ability to establish good relationships are better than excellent technical skills.
- a "very thorough" audit can be an adverse criticism rather than praise.
- false sense of security to be "independent and objective" can be very risky to Internal Auditor.

Management
- tone at the top should filter down to middle and lower management.
- unprofessional director's reprisal to internal audit for adverse audit findings unchecked by GM
- lack of demonstrated support to IA

Co-workers
- resistant to internal audit process
- more concerned to look good to upper management then address the issues identified.

Hardest part
- educate managers without formal qualifications
- dealing with rude officers who use cuss words and other Australian expressions.
- being required to report to less qualified boss who knows very little about Internal Auditing.

Enjoyable Part
- training and development
- opportunity to use CAATS
- autonomy
Pros
Flex Time, Good training & development
Cons
Resistance to the audit process, Lack of support from management
