    I worked at U.S. Government Accountability Office (More than 3 years)


    Great work life balance. Telework is rarely an issue. Gym in the building in DC is nice. Work can be interesting and bi-partisan. Timeframes are paced out enough to allow deep analysis. Taking personal leave is rarely discouraged by management. Get to work with new people every 10-12 months. Agency is generally respected on the Hill and by the public.


    Sometimes recommendations are generic and not meaningful. Aspects of job can be onerous, like fact checking drafts and writing up interviews. Not a lively atmosphere--the work attracts introverted analysts. Some topics can be dry. Not fast paced work environment, for better or worse. Main downside is that pay scale is not GS, so you make less than federal counterparts. Also promotion is exceedingly difficult. Since you are competing with a pool of other analysts for a promotion, you sometimes have to wait your turn to move up.

    Advice to Management

    GAO does a great job at valuing their employees. This comes from the top-down; Gene Dodaro is sincerely committed to a good workplace. I would focus on trying to get on the GS scale to stay competitive.
