Rewarding if you put the effort in

Economist (Former Employee)

I worked at Department of Energy


Pros: Work/life balance is excellent. Great benefits and after the first couple of years, time off was sufficient. The work was rewarding for me… Cons: The job had ebbs and flows of work time. The building and office space is not fancy at all and there are few perks.… Advice to Senior Management: Make sure you push your employees more and offer more reward… Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend More
