Pros

since this is a government job, work pressure and the urgency to meet deadline is low. My coworkers were all very nice and laid back, but when it's busy, they work hard.

Cons

-I'd say people generally spend at least 40% of their time doing unrelated stuff at work, sometimes, there are just not many things to do. So the sense of achievement could be low. -Salary is not very competitive compare with industry.

    Pros

    Pay and benefits are good for the work hours and relative lack of stress Generally nice people Secure job

    Cons

    Very slow, boring, and unwilling to change Very little reward for merit. Difficult to get hired, or be promoted without knowing the right people. You will likely learn very little, and get stuck here (due to salary, job security, and lack of exit options). If that is not a concern, then its fine.

    Advice to Management

    Hold managers accountable for performance. Don't just be worried about the appearance of failure, but care about facilitating success.

    Pros

    When you make a difference, it's easy to see that difference in peoples' lives. Great benefits, good hours, generally great people to work with. Good career progression for those who want it and will play the game.

    Cons

    Most managers are terrible... control freaks who are more concerned about looking good rather than getting results. The politicians who control things often make stupid decisions. Budget cuts are always looming.

    Advice to Management

    Hire more capable people, and more young people who aren't bitter and jaded.
