Government ministry with room for growth
Information Technology Specialist (Current Employee) –  Kingston, JA17 May 2018
The Ministry of Finance is an interesting place to work. There are new challenges daily and limited resources to resolve them. It forces a person to be creative in their methods. The salary is not great as it does not compare with the private sector or IT jobs in other countries. The benefits are fairly good.
Pros
Decent benefits
Cons
Below average compensation
