    I worked at Australian Taxation Office full-time for more than 10 years

    Pros

    Nice people generally, often lost in the machinery so there is a shared camaraderie of sorts. Plenty of enthusiastic, positive people there. Very high integrity.

    Cons

    Beauracracy with a capital B. That extends to supporting staff as well. Some managers are very supportive (I tried to be, and it was nice to have that appreciated). Many are not. The corporate philosophy is largely "you're on your own when it comes to career development".
