As it is funded publicly, you can't expect very good salaries. Moreover, they depend solely on the state of the economy so don't expect to get bonuses or rewards or to get paid for extra hours. They employ people depending on their competancy regarding the system and not (as they should) depending on people's qualifications, experience or ability to do the job. It also happens that people end up in management when they shoudn't due to the fact there's no-one else to do the job. That they are not the most suitable people for that doesn't count.
You get the opportunity to try loads of different jobs.
