I worked for the Department of Environment, Land, Water and Planning for 2.5 years. I started as a Policy Officer (VPS 3) and moved up to a Senior Policy Advisor (VPS 5) during that time. The general working culture was very positive, access to professional development was great, and colleagues really care about what they do. I worked on three different teams during this time. My advice to job seekers is to get hired in whatever job you can get, as there are great opportunities to move across and up within the organisation in a short amount of time. As with any large organisation, it is very important to question people who work in the general department about the specific team that you are thinking about joining, as culture, competency, and management quality/style varies greatly.
Pros
Important work, great people, great benefits (salary, access to training, flexible hours)
Cons
Internal politics of large organisation, some experience with poor quality management

This is a very difficult school to work at. Many students have anger management issues and are extremely difficult to manage. Teaching staff do not get enough support with these challenging students. It is a shame because the students who want to learn are deprived from being taught due to the constant disruption of unruly children.

A very nice clinic but unfortunately it has lot of political issues in the company especially very poor management with very poor salary. They will not support you at all.

Highly recommend, great hours when I learned heaps. Hours were long but rewards were many. Management was very supportive and the networking with co-workers was outstanding. Hardest part of the job was lack of direction and most enjoyable part of the job was autonomy to create.
Pros

On a typical day at VGSO I would ensure all Solicitors were assisted where needed to ensure smooth running of the office. I learnt almost everything I know when it comes to Administration here and also time management skills. Management was a little tough but was supported by all my co workers. The hardest part of this position was trying to stay positive in a bullying environment. The most enjoyable was again the variety and also the potential the position had.
