A good employer if you're looking for safe employment, but can lack opportunities for growth.

Pros

The atmosphere is very professional, and the managers are very interested in improving employee moral. The work can be very interesting at times, and many jobs offer you the freedom operate independently.

Cons

Like any bureaucracy, there is very little change in the IRS, and any change that does come about is a result of congressional action. It's also not generally well received when you tell people you work for the IRS at social functions.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Management generally does a good job. My only advice would be to make sure there is a difference in pay that is commensurate with job difficulty rather than seniority.

    Pros

    Competence of employees; chance to help people; work/life balance; ideas are fully considered by management; numerous opportunities for advancement are available.

    Cons

    Slow (if not resistant) to change; meetings for days; you'll get blamed for the work of Congress, which creates the policies the IRS follows; some shortsightedness in communications policies.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Split Twitter accounts into more specific channels. Three accounts for all varieties of taxpayers makes absolutely no sense. Also, be more forward-thinking in your communications approaches.

    Pros

    Stable schedule. You know what your hours are. You know what you're getting paid, there is no guess work, and you know when you get raises.

    Cons

    It can become repetitive after awhile.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    I wish there was a quicker response time to employee made requests. For example, changes in your schedule or certain disputes can take a while to get resolved.
