    I have been working at U.S. Government Accountability Office full-time for more than 10 years

    Pros

    GAO has a very strong work-life balance: telework, AWS, flexible hours, casual dress code are all great benefits. Also, it is not on the general schedule, so employees can get pay increases much faster than in other government agencies.

    Cons

    GAO is so focused on work-life balance that it has perhaps gone too far. Poor performers are rarely dealt with and employees miss deadlines without consequence. Also, promotions are based more on favoritism and diversity, rather than true merit, Therefore, the leadership is pretty unimpressive. Finally, (perhaps on account of the fact that GAO is an accounting organization), there is much more focus on following prescribed policies and procedures than on making sure products are issued on time and have useful and substantive information.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Rethink the promotions process and include management outside the team. Lighten up on all of the policies and procedures and give equal weight to usefulness/timeliness of reports.
