    Negative Outlook

    I worked at NSW Government full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Flexible working hours , Ability to make a difference

    Cons

    In a very small town of 2,500 in north west NSW our indigenous staff were ineffective, allowed in due to their cultural expertise. Every time work came up to do with anyone in the town they'd passed in the street they couldn't because it was a conflict of interest, I thought this was the reason they came to work for the department without a degree.

    I have been working at NSW Government full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    great flexible working arrangements, super super, nice work-life balance. Overall it is a very nice, easy, comfortable place to work where everyone is very supportive and generally quite ok

    Cons

    being government it can be challenging and you need a lot of patience. There are a lot of 'lifers' about and many people who are virtually incompetent but can't be sacked (being government few people seem to have the will to do so) Also the wheels of government either run manically fast, or just painfully painfully slowly - and much of this is out of your hands - you need to be able to bear this with some patience.
