Pros & Cons

  • Great access to training, work related to my area of study, emphasis on high achievement, flexible hours.
  • The unique type of work we do, the clients, the environment and probably its size.
  • Being given autonomy to do my work independently, with supervision whenever I need it.
  • The content of the work and the workplace culture- the work is interesting and engaging, I am granted quite a lot of autonomy and responsibility, and all my colleagues are very supportive of my learning and development.
  • The interesting work that we do.
  • Can be stressful at times.
  • The emphasis on getting every piece of detail perfect. We are auditors after all, so its pretty much what we do!
  • Resourcing- there is potential for better integration between service groups and there is currently an imbalance in the relative workloads of each. This results in some employees being overworked while the skills and availability of other employees are not utilised as much as they could be. The organisation is currently working to address this.
  • Only one office in Canberra - nothing in other states.
  • Limited to scope to undertake and publish personal research.

I participated in NAIDOC week events where guest speakers shared their experiences of growing up in an indigenous community and the history of their family in Australia. A number of indigenous culture participation workshops were held to increase awareness of indigenous culture.

Very frequent formal training for graduates. However the training courses lack application at times and can be very theory-heavy. I have picked up both technical and personal skills in training.

The company encourages minimising using excess paper and is moving towards a paperless environment but still uses a lot of paper.
