Salary at Department of Education and Training

What are your thoughts on pay and bonuses at your company?

Generous pay.
Midlevel, Canberra
The pay is quite satisfactory for the work we are doing. The payscale is transparent and consistent across the department, and most people receive a small payrise each year depending on whether they have reached the top of their payscale at their level and if their performance is satisfactory. At most levels there are no bonuses given.
