    I worked at United States Department of Energy full-time (more than 3 years)


    - Meaningful and relevant work
    - Always more to take on
    - Ability to move across the agency
    - good compensation and professional development plans are required


    The agency is almost a balanced mixture of smart/ driven folks and lazy/ entitled ones. This creates a difficult culture and the necessity for smart and driven employees to pick up the slack of others.

    It can take time to break into the agency; like any massive organization, there is a lot of inertia and it takes a while to feel like you're really contributing and being taken seriously.

It takes a lot of manpower to build a nation's economic and energy security. That's why there's the US Department of Energy. The DOE was established in 1977 by former president Jimmy Carter at a time when the US was facing a severe winter and fuel shortages that caused factory and school closings and threatened residential cutoffs.
