Salary at Department of the Prime Minister and Cabinet (PM&C)
- Average rating for Salary, based on 17 reviews7.5 / 10
What are your thoughts on pay and bonuses at your company?
There are no bonuses and the salary is pretty good for an entry level job.
Pay and bonuses are specifically linked to your APS level. There is not much flexibility around this.
The pay is definitely comfortable, but grads are working well above their pay grade.
No bonuses, the pay is decent and a very welcome change coming from being a student, though it is a bit disheartening to know that we are generally performing at the level of APS5 and only paid at the APS3 level. This is about a $15,000 difference annually.
I think they are reasonable.
The pay is above average for a graduate program. It also increases as you increase in APS levels
Flex time is fantastic and pay is reasonable
Pretty low to begin with for a grad
For what I do, the pay is fine. But I want to do more, and earn more.
I receive a very good starting salary as a graduate, and there are many opportunities for progression. I do not believe that the Department offers bonuses.
What are your company's best or most unusual perks? For example: free tickets, free dinners, moving expenses, taxis, pension, etc.
I have two: the barber in 1 National Circuit is excellent, and you meet amazingly smart and influential people. I remember seeing Lucy Turnbull in civvies lining up to get a coffee downstairs, very casual.
relocation costs are covered if you are moving from interstate to CBR (petrol if you driving here is covered and food for the time when you leave your home state to your arrival at 3 weeks paid accommodation until you find a house). Attendance at 4 of the grad series and any other random kind of conferences etc that may appear you will usually be able to attend.
Initial moving expenses.
Flex time is a wonderful perk, being able to accrue any extra time you are required to work and then use this to take full or partial days off work without using annual/sick leave.
The flexible work conditions. As part of the graduate program my move interstate was also covered.
Flex time Public service hours
The Department offered relocation benefits and assistance upon moving to Canberra. It also offers very generous leave allowances and flex time benefits.
