    I worked at IRS full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Great pay and benefits, on the job training and you have the opportunity for advancement.

    Cons

    Prejudice, do not practice work place ethics. Some supervisors are rude as well as disrespectful to both clients and employees. They show favoritism when giving out awards and some of them should not be managers, because they do not know how to treat people with respect.

    Advice to Management

    My advice to management is to treat people employees with respect. Do not show favoritism, be professional and leave the gossip outside. Review and make cure that they are abiding by the rules and regulations of the company. Make sure that they abide by the Work Ethics and stop bullying their employees. Bad behavior goes both way, having a supervisor who is arrogant and a bully will lead to a hostile environment and lawsuits. This can also result in the amount of clients and the reputation of the company as a whole. Individuals should not have to put up with on the job bullying.
