Many intense peaks with sitting weeksand mellow troughs when not sitting
Working in one of the country's most spectatular buildings.
Sense of serving the nation.

Demands of clientele can be quite taxing.

Competing demands and agendas from Reps, Senate and DPS internally means not always on the same page.

Free gym
Pros
brilliant work environment
Cons
challenging clientele

A steady decline in moral,conditona and job security since 2001
Was once a progressive and enjoyable place of Employment.
But unfortueatly the moral and instability of the current envirionment is now very toxic.

Uncertainty of Job Security

Eroding Conditions

Dollar driven management

Lack of pride in both the building and the company

Lack of trades staff and lack of direction have all combined to change a once great work environment to a place of low moral and general uncertainty.
Pros
Best Building in the Country
Cons
Uncertain future
