I have been working at Federal Government

Pros

Well intentioned institution- career people have skills but lack motivation

Cons

Out of touch- policy/ process focus that is not pragmatic or practical

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Political appointees must be functionally experienced, and SES must be rotated, and not be in one job for more than three years

    Pros

    excellent pay for level of performance required. Can do very, very little but rewards are high. Pay is much higher in at management level than that of our counter parts in the civilian sector.

    Cons

    make work atmosphere, too much waste and not always enough meaningful tasks which can lead to a long boring day.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    concentrate more on performance and necessary actions rather than visibility for promotion. Not everyone is a self starter and cannot be concerned with upsetting non-performers because of race, creed or color.
