Challenging and fast paced
A challenging time to work there during big departmental changes, which made it a difficult environment. I would not want to comment on the situation now.

Work Life balanced.
Management is supportive and workplace culture is flexible. I get to learn new things at workplace. Team members are really helpful. I enjoy being a part of a big organization. It helped me to explore my capabilities and increased my responsibilities. The best part is, we can leave workplace as the time ends. A shift is never been lengthy for me.
Pros
Friendly environment
Cons
Additional work other than JD

Not great, poor management
Roles are very likely to go at any time, management is flakey and quite often make rash decisions which they need to fix two months down the line, most people are nice but much more money to be made elsewhere
Cons
Near Central

Overall is fair
Staff on Supervisory level tends to over exercise their authority.
Overall environment is more or less calm with the rest of the general staff.

Staff handling station duties are vulnerable and expose to abuse from public.

Pay is good but too many changes and restructures. Many people in roles they are not experienced in and job interviews do not follow due process and there is no accountability

My first working with Government and political " curved balls" was difficult to deal with
The hardest part of the day was trying to judge what was politically " correct" for that day, that week, that month.
The most enjoyable part of the job was working with professional, outcome focused work colleagues

Top state government department
Good salary and flexible working arrangements. Friendly team culture and activity based workplace.

Management often do not clearly state expectations or lack people management experience and skills altogether. Resulting in mismanagement of staff.
