What are your thoughts on pay and bonuses at your company?
Compared to my previous company (which was an American owned private company), the pay at the ACTPS is significantly better and I feel that I am getting what I should be entitled to. Bonuses are not really a thing here but there is annual leave loading, which is a lump sum given to us in December to cover costs when taking leave over the Christmas/New Years period.
