Overall Reviews at Australian Government Services Australia

Project Manager | Tuggeranong ACT | 24 Oct. 2019
A challenging place to work at, full of opportunities and interesting work.
The typical day at work has already been preplanned and I am ready to pursue the days activities. Its important to keep a log of the days activities in order to review any missed opportunities. There needs to be some thinking time set aside every day to ensure that you are on track and report the important information up the chain. The work is exciting and full of challenges and requires a high degree of thought and planning. Meeting with key stakeholders need to be planned and flagged in order to progress project work and ensure that all stakeholders are on the same page all of the time.
Senior Business Analyst | Canberra ACT | 27 Nov. 2019
Excellent place to work in the cyber security domain.
Very supporting management ; Balanced work-life culture; Amazing and supportive colleagues ; Great location; Deep-dive on the latest trend in the cyber security domains was by weekly session, which was very interactive and informative; Some of the IT processes, particularly on infrastructure hosting platform and stakeholders engagement needed uplift.

productive day
the most enjoyable part of working at Centrelink is the ability to assist our community and provide them with the services they need. the hardest part of the job is the excessive escalated and aggressive customers that staff and specifically managers and team leaders have to deal with on a daily basis.

good organisation to work in
DHS is a effecient and skilled organisation that processes government programs. promoting customer service, ensuring deadlines are met using a range of computer systems. A typical day would be ensure customers are served, leading team for any changes that occur, rosters upd, reconciliation process/admin work. Having worked in DHS, I learned a vast range of computer skills, team based environment allowed for effective services and productivity. Hardest part of the job when systems crash. Most important part of the job is satisfaction of client service and meeting achievements expected with my team.

Very large organisation and generally a good place to work
a typical day at work involved developing service level agreements and reporting on service availability to the executive. I have furthered my skills in stakeholder management and ITSM functions in general. management can sometimes be questionable. my co-workers keep me coming back and are great to work with. The hardest art of my job is identifying/managing stakeholders as the department is so vast. The most enjoyable part of my job is the satisfaction of implementing a service level agreement.
