Fast pace and challenging. Much contact with the public and many rules
and regulations.But the colleagues are great and much camaderie. Management expects you to take on the challenge and you need to have a lot initiatives to tackle the jobs given to you. Definitely I met a lot of people in my course of my work in the number of thousands.

Hardest Part was to adjust to the old-style micromanagement kind of work culture.
Contract workers take up responsibilities of application development here.
Pros
Fixed office timings for contract employees.

A typical day would consist of checking and replying to emails, supporting users on technical areas, administrative duties, meetings with colleagues or users,

Learnt how to work and communicate with others in a corporate environment, taking into account the needs of the users


co-workers are friendly and helpful usually, its like a family oriented environment


There are usually a lot of "obstacles" to getting things done like unnecessary paperwork and procedures.


most enjoyable part of the job is to develop things that are useful for the public
Pros
helpful colleagues
Cons
many layers of middle management

Frequent job rotation among management level resulting in lapse in proper handover of portfolio. Time spent to brief new managers on section roles and structure. However, it has provided an open discussion and recap on rationale of past policies change.
Pros
Good team bonding opportunities
Cons
Deviation in policies
