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

    Pros

    Good people to work with and a pretty good work-life balance (especially for the permanent public servants.) There are plenty of opportunities to change jobs and grow in the organisation.

    Cons

    A lot of organisational change being imposed from outside (normal in the public sector) Decisions take too long. Little sense of cohesion, Divisions still feel separate from the rest of the organisation. Integration is taking far too long.
