Current Employee - Regulatory Health Project Manager in Silver Spring, MD

I have been working at FDA full-time for more than 5 years

Pros

- Flexible Work Schedule
-Telecommuting encouraged
- Work with smart people

Working at FDA is not a lazy government job. There are exciting things happening in the world of drug development and the results are seen firsthand in your job. If you are interested in leading edge medicine this job is for you.

Cons

-Large workload
-telecommuting expenses not reimbursed (i.e. internet, printer needs)

The new FDA campus is running out of room and employees are expected to address this issue by working at home more and giving up desk space. The planning process for the campus was not well thought out. Additionally, the workload of senior management is large and this creates a bottleneck in completing tasks. Although they are willing to delegate some items, it is by no means done enough.

Advice to ManagementAdvice
