    Pros

    The IRS pays well during tax season and offers copious amounts of overtime for those that want it. If you like getting to work and getting your work done without interruption, this is a good place to work.

    Cons

    If you start as seasonal, it's nearly impossible to move to full-time, year-round opportunities. If you are looking for a team environment, this is not it. Work between employees and "teammates" is highly competitive.

    I have been working at IRS full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Secure, critical job because you must report to work even if the Government shuts down
    Plenty of overtime due to case backlog
    No dress code
    Alternative Work Schedule gives us one day off a week or every two weeks

    Cons

    Managers often have no education beyond a two- or four-year degree
    Tammany Hall-type environment due to nepotism because entire families work for the IRS

    Advice to Management

    Take Management courses for credit and a college or university. The Front Line Readiness Program is insufficient
