Pros

Over all it's not a bad place to work if you can stay away from dealing with upper management and ignore the political side of it, and I don't mean office politics, I mean as in government. It can be tough trying to forget that you're also a taxpayer.

Cons

There is too much emphasis on promoting to meet the political goals of the gov't as opposed to the public recieving the service. (ie. promoting based on language)

    Pros

    Very helpful team who take the time to teach you about tax legislation. The team leader took the time to sit down and do detailed reviews to ensure your growth.

    Cons

    The work got repetitive once you have been doing it for awhile. As a co-op the training was informal and it was a learn it yourself job.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    try to implement a more formal training plan as well as allow more growth and responsibilities for coop students. THis will ensure that co-ops are fully engaged.

    If you don't care about immediate financial gain and would rather have a pension/retirement next to no other!

    Pros

    Pension is second to none, can retire at 55 with 60% of your salary minimum for the rest of your life indexed to inflation. Vacation time, benefits are huge. Compressed/flexible work hours are very, very good.

    Cons

    Competence of senior management is absolutely abysmal. All the red tape of working for the government. Promotion goes to 'pet' employees or visible minorities. White men 30-50 are no longer promoted even if they are the best one for the job. Pay for professionals is significantly below the private industry standards now. Pay however for secretarial and administrative jobs is above the private industry standards still.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Recognize the efforts of your employees more. Senior management really needs to get a clue about what their subordinates are actually doing in their work environment.
