tedious work, lots of office politics
I learned a lot about how past and current government policies affect migration to Australia and the benefits that migrants bring to Australia. Daily work at the Department of Home Affairs is boring yet busy work with plenty of deadlines and time pressures bit little advancement opportunities.

There are better places to work
Employment opportunities could be so interesting & exciting however the ongoing bullying & disrespect of staff & their efforts is disgraceful. Bad managers were promoted. More experienced staff, with corporate knowledge, were disregarded. Poor performers were rewarded. No respect or consideration for vulnerable staff, ie disabled, older staff, ethnic backgrounds etc.

Competitive and everyone unhappy
This place is affected by a authoritarian bad management style which is demanding. Everyone is unhappy and desperate to move. There is little chance of progress and comparatively low pay with the rest of the APS

Can't wait to leave
Wouldn't recommend, low pay, extensive hours, no recognition and difficult to progress. Huge amount of red tape to get anything done and difficult to get clear advice on processes (conflicting advice from different teams).

Productive and enjoyable environment
Working at Home Affairs offers many challenges with a broad exposure to Government based services. It is a large department with a lot of opportunities.
