Pros

Great place to begin career for college students,middle age and everyone who wants an opportunity.Many opportunities when the budget is permitting. Also there are flexible work schedules and there are increases by grades and steps.Also union representation is an added bonus.

Cons

The budget restricts job opportunities and moving into career opportunities.Depending on what type of position,such as for example working as a contact representative or intake clerk or working with the public burn out is a often occurrence.Also oftentimes you may feel trapped,in terms of moving into other career opportunities.

Advice to Management

Management has to hire competent and honest managers that one want to be there and manage a team,who will move on to other career endeavors. Also more information on networking and details ,so employees can advance in their career and personal lives.

    Pros

    One of the major reasons for my enjoying my experience were the various opportunities. There are few places where you can enter for one position and find a better one that you are more suited to and then be encouraged to switch to the new position. The IRS was a great place to work because the people there are smart and will generally take the time to figure out where you as a new employee will be capable of deploying your talents.

    Cons

    The work can be boring on occasion and sometimes you do have work to be done that stretches your abilities.

    Advice to Management

    Be sure to continue to take the time to find out what employees are good at and help them attain positions that let them put their talents to the best use.
