What insiders say about…
I have input on matters from the earliest stage through to their resolution. This requires constantly using my judgment, managing internal and external stakeholders, project management and good legal analysis.
Despite the public service system of hierarchy, the organization is in practice very flat. Even very junior staff have access to senior leadership and regularly brief them. Collaborative working is the standard. The social culture of teams varies a lot between branches and offices, some are very social and others not at all.
While challenging, the interviewers made an extra effort to make you feel comfortable. This helped calm my nerves.
I was asked what I (missing word) about the organization. Apparently responses to this question is an area interviewees seem to lack most.
Know what the organization does! If you've interned here before, don't assume the interview is a rubber stamp process. Be shiny!
It is extremely flexible. We are a public sector organization so there is no culture of staying excessively late or working long hours. We log our hours and accrue excess hours which we can take off later. It is a very convenient place to work in that sense.
There are no bonuses at my organization. I believe I could be working in a private firm for a lot higher pay, but I would be less likely to have the benefit of a good work life balance.
We can apply for study allowance.
Generally, the managers are very personable and approachable and make good mentors. They have an interest in nurturing employees' careers and helping them to excel. They give great feedback and recognition.
Lots of training programs available including presentation skills, writing skills, economics training and legal training.
It is not that easy as budgetary constraints limit the amount of positions offered at higher classifications.
The organization is visibly committed to diversity and organized several events for staff themed around issues affecting women, indigenous people and LGBTI people. It is getting better (but is still not perfect) at flexible working arrangements.
We have a lot of office space and good facilities in the building. It is a bit old and dated and the kitchens could be refreshed. The dress code is corporate however it is quite casual. We also have casual Friday.
We have different bins for recycling, paper, and landfill and comingled products.Join us to bookmark!
