    Pros

    Easy to balance work and personal life Most of the people are friendly and fun to work with Many very knowledgeable people who are willing to teach others

    Cons

    Lately employees have been kept in the dark about budget issues and lower level employees don't know what will happen or if they will have a job tomorrow. Several typical government employees who are there just to get a paycheck and management does nothing to discourage this attitude. Pay scale for positions makes it nearly impossible to find or retain good employees

    Advice to Management

    The "us" and "them" attitude has to end. Departments don't work together and some departments openly don't like other departments. I think we should all be in this together and not count different sections as the enemy. All sections (and section managers) need to respect other sections (and section managers).


  2. If it weren't for a certain division in the agency, I might give the Department a 4, too.

    Pros

    Work schedule is good, company allows telecommuting one day a week, benefits are not too bad, opportunity to learn different types of tasks if you have the drive to learn them.

    Cons

    Lots of infighting between different divisions within the agency. Communication between senior management and the rest of the agency is poor. Let people know that there would be layoffs, but did not tell anyone who was going to be laid off (or even which divisions would be hit the hardest) until the day that layoffs occurred. No training program to ensure that the skill level of all employees is adequate.

    Advice to Management

    Divisions need to work with each other better and not try to silence certain people's views. Better communication of what the priorities for the Department are.
