New leadership, purpose driven, good salary, flexible, not hierarchical, senior leadership keen to listen and innovate. Opportunity to re-shape the culture and continuing to evolve. Excellent flexible work opportunities.
Relic public servants, resistant to change, focussed on how they have always done things, not future focussed and a large proportion lack agility and accountability. This can be exhausting and dehumanising. Accomodation is ordinary to say the least.

The government has great benefits. You're off on all of the holidays. You have decent health options. Some offices allow you to work on a compressed work schedule so you can work 9 or 10 hour days and have a day or two off within a pay period. Also, after working with the government full time for 3 years, you have job security and are able to move easier through the federal government agencies.
The organization needs to be restructured. Since it is difficult to fire people after they hit the 3 year mark, there are a lot of employees who are complacent with their jobs and have very bad attitudes. This makes things difficult for the main stakeholder (the veteran) who is already having a difficult time having their claims processed. Preventable mistakes are being made and the stakeholders at met with attitudes. They also over taxing good workers to compensate for bad workers with little to no consequences for those that are barely performing. It brings down the morale of those that are doing quality work.6
