Located too far from anything.
No local shops or places of interest.

Traffic unbearable and long travel times.

Local Train station closing for 7-8 months due to railway station refurbishments and new link going in.
Pros
Nice staff and culture
Cons
Understaffed, underpaid and short lunch breaks. Some areas have toxic culture.

The hours where flexible and the managers are very understanding and helpful, especially towards young interns. The workplace culture is great and there is very little stress.

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.

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
