    Best- Choose from among many health insurance companies. Employer pays about 2/3. Dental and vision not provided but are available. Long Term Care insurance available at good rate if young. TSP is a safe, inexpensive form of 401K and, currently, employer contributes some.

    Current Sr. Auditor in Alexandria, Virginia

    The greatest thing about my job is the work life balance. I give up making more money to enjoy more time with family and friends. Money can't replace graduations, weddings, and birthdays. The TSP, the government's form of 401k, has the lowest fees so that's a plus. Also being able to have a flexible schedule and telework are great.

    Retirement package, amount of days off 240 hours can be held and 208 hours given after 15 years.

    The 401K is good. They contribute as well. The more you work, the more vacation time you earn.

    There is not much salary increments after you join. You get cost of living based on what Congress approves.

    not bad good package over all

    Current Employee in Cleveland, Ohio

    Federal Government has very nice benefits package with healthcare, matching 401k, basic life insurance, flexible spending plans and generous vacation and sick leave.

    Bonuses were determined on personal relations more than work accomplishments.
