    I have been working at National Oceanic & Atmospheric Administration full-time (more than 10 years)

    Pros

    The work is highly satisfying. We do great science in amazing places.

    Cons

    In recent years, there has been a move to hire more policy and management people and fewer scientists. That's brought the agency down. The people creating performance measures have no idea about the work or outcomes that are being assessed. The policy and management people are an overpaid subculture that create paper and committees, but have little impact (positive or negative) on the real work of the agency. That goes on despite them.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Hire people with extensive science backgrounds into management and policy positions. Many scientists can learn policy and management. Few policy and management people can learn the science.
