    I worked at Roads and Maritime Services NSW full-time

    Pros

    - Great culture within some teams and branches - open to innovative solutions - Flexible working arrangement - Less working hour (for full-time) than non-government organisations

    Cons

    - Team culture varies greatly across the agency - Processes often kill progress - a simple approval can take months - The leadership teams above branch level (eg. the minister) could demand ad-hoc work at short notice

    Advice to Management

    - Observe and listen to the people actually doing the work and respect their way of working - they are the experts - Re-structures seem to happen every 1-2 years, but they are unnecessary!

    I have been working at Roads and Maritime Services NSW full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    Good work life balance and a decent salary.

    Cons

    Slow moving at times and then sustained bursts of pure madness.

    Advice to Management

    Listen to your people more. Be more transparent, and upfront about changes. Currently very opaque.

    Pros

    Nice Offices. Some Good People

    Cons

    Contractors Run a mock and rule the roost. Very Poor Senior Management who care nothing for employees and who micro manage to the nth degree. I have seen employees let go just to make space for contractors. Think twice before working here unless you are on contract

    Advice to Management
