The good things

DOD is a professional department with unlimited funding at the middle and lower level. If you are an executive, you have more chance of getting the flick as they save more money getting rid of execs and someone at the next level down inherits more work. So at the middle to lower levels the pay is good for what you do and the regulations you work under make it a friendly environment to work in. Depending on which section you work in, the work is interesting and rewarding. Defence realise that staff have a life away from work and are flexible in regards to your home life needs.

The challenges

Deadlines and adapting to constant change to procedure can be challenging however training is given until you get it right.
