Management at IP Australia

How accessible are managers and do they make good mentors? You may want to address internal communication, performance feedback or praise and recognition.

Everyone is contactable by Lync, an internal messaging system. I sit right next to an SES (a top dog within the APS) and he's very approachable. People are all very willing for a chat and to help you out if need. Everybody has a specific supervisor to help them, but we all help each other out in different situations.
