    Pros

    Telework, flexibility, and an understanding culture. I used to work for other agencies where the politics were very apparent, while politics exist, most people are focused on the mission

    Cons

    Because of the nature of disaster management the workload can be very unpredictable. The open work space in some of the offices is hard to work in. Also senior management is very disconnected from what is going on at the "worker bee" level

    Advice to Management

    FEMA is an incredibly reactive agency. Implementing more of a methodology and planning would really help decrease the stress of the workplace
