    I have been working at Australian Taxation Office full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Claims that they offer flexible working arrangements.

    Cons

    Reality is some senior managers don't like staff that work part time or work from home. Micromanaging from senior managers. A culture of accuse first and get the facts later if ever.

    I have been working at Australian Taxation Office for less than a year

    Pros

    Established teams and structure. The graduate program is great. A lot of library of business and functional documents to get a good understanding of the job.

    Cons

    Unfortunately teams seem to still work in silos. A lot of people to get know. Finding the right one to assist with your job is a challenge.

    Pros

    Great work life balance. Very supportive Staff Very flexible work hours Not much pressure at any given time that may keep your mind at ease

    Neutral Outlook

    I worked at Australian Taxation Office full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Work life balance is pretty much guaranteed (until senior management levels anyway) due to decent leave provisions and the fact the you can't take work due to confidentiality reasons. Most people are really nice and down to earth. There is scope to move around and try new things.

    Cons

    Difficult to get recognised via promotions as these are dependent on budget and due to the selection process which involves an independent selection panel reviewing written responses to criteria, it is arguable that the most experienced/competent people may not get through to an interview. A lot of procedures and administration can take up your time at work. If you want an international career with travel opportunities you won't get that here.

  10. "Excellent place to work"

    I have been working at Australian Taxation Office

    Pros

    large area for movement although slow at moving at times. Excellent community. Very stable for permanent staff. Very financial rewarding for contractors.

    Cons

    It is Tax focus but there are 20000 employees so not everything is tax. IT is very large.
