    I have been working at Queensland Treasury full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    Interesting work, work on large projects and with senior staff even as a junior employee.

    Cons

    Chronically under resourced. Not possible to complete all work within work hours. Employees discouraged from keeping timesheets so flex time difficult to take.

    I worked at Queensland Treasury

    Pros

    Flex time. No other pros that I can think of.

    Cons

    Terrible work environment. High turnover of employees, and everyone is more interested in the title they hold than the actual knowledge or experience they should posses.

    I worked at Queensland Treasury

    Pros

    Relaxed environment, friendly genuine people, culture of information sharing, generous study support and flexibility for study purposes - i was told it was ok to study at work in my downtime - where else would you get that?

    Cons

    No consideration of career development by management or further opportunities unless you are a politician (politically savvy). No performance management process (i think they are trying to change this). But - this is not every department. Others are very good and mindful of career development. Most days I did not have enough to do and was very bored and unfulfilled.

    Pros

    Good Salary, potential for great flexibility in hours

    Cons

    Untalented management. They seem to be good at "Saying the words" but management appear to be too stupid to understand what the words mean. As an example, there was a complaint about calls not being resolved quickly enough - the answer seemed to be look in a book, book says "get an Incident Manager" so that was interpreted as appoint a single persona as "Incident Manger". When it was pointed out to them that a single person means a single bottleneck, the manager in question was gobsmacked, I am not sure if it was because someone questioned his authority or that he missed the glaringly obvious. Then there is the recent cutbacks - managements response, was not to fight the cuts, just get the existing employees to work more unpaid hours.

    "The best government has to offer"

    Principal Treasury Analyst in Brisbane

    I have been working at Queensland Treasury

    Pros

    Treasury is one of two 'central agencies' (along with Premiers/Prime Ministers department) that sit at the heart of the government. Treasury provides a consultancy role to government, advising it on how to raise revenue and how and where to spend taxpayer's money. The work is fulfilling because you know you are helping the community by contributing to sustainable economic and financial policies which will shape the future. It is also interesting because you are directly advising senior decision makers, such as the Treasurer. The working conditions and prestige are generally among the best in government and you have an opportunity to work with some of the best and brightest. Work-life balance is superior to similarly remunerated jobs in the private sector.

    Cons

    While the pay levels are the same as the rest of government, opportunities for progression are not as readily available in Treasury because there are more long serving employees. However, this is offset by the fact that working at Treasury is a good stepping stone for more senior roles in other departments and is generally the government department most respected in the private sector.
