    I have been working at Environmental Protection Agency full-time (more than 10 years)

    Pros

    Salary, Job Security, Interesting projects when entry level

    Cons

    Terrible management, promotions not based on merit but on cliques, management sees staff as bodies not as talent. Managers care more about themselves than their staff. A lot of internal politics and CYA.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Senior management should move on.

    Pros

    If you are inspired by an organization's mission and are a soldier for the environment, EPA is the place to work.

    Cons

    If you are a star, you better watch your back. You show other people who are comfortable with average or below average and it pisses them off. There are a lot of people with "it's good enough for government." It's hard to get rid of bad apples.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Need to be more nimble and expect results. The environment is moribund and slow. Don't continue to accept average or below average.
