    Pros

    Interesting work, all decisions flow through Treasury before the money button's pushed.
    Time served looks good on resume especially if a career with Gov is planned. Also one of the few areas where there is the real chance of moving to the private sector - especially banking.

    Cons

    Lots of them:
    - poorly paid
    - culture of "no"
    - generation divide challenges open plan design
    - mind numbing routines

    Advice to Management

    Bring back the economists. Teach people the etiquette of open plan activity based offices (e.g. loud conversations)

    I have been working at NSW Treasury full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Exposure to financial, banking and legal market in the area of infrastructure. While contributing to decision making process of Government. Good work life balance

    Cons

    Remuneration is slightly below market with comparable private sector role. Very high demanding at times, which requires working beyond contracted hours.

    Advice to Management

    Good development of professional goals. Opportunity to work autonomously is a plus. Good development in team collaboration.

    I have been working at NSW Treasury full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Numerous opportunties for professional development
    Exposure to different subject matter and skills
    Friendly collegial office culture
    Work/life balance

    Cons

    Elements of risk averse public sector culture
    Advancement based on seniority not performance

    Advice to Management

    The organisation is deficient in two significant areas. Development of internal staff into senior executive positions and responsiveness to the outside world. As a consequence, Treasury appears to be a bastion of traditional public service. The current efforts to transform the organisation are reinforcing this impression
