Pros

*Flexible Hours
*Good Benefits
*Leave Earned
*Ten Holidays off per year

Cons

*If you're in certain clerical series, you cannot move up. For example, if you are a current 318 series, forget about applying for any jobs. When they look at your application, they throw it away as soon as they see your series, and don't bother looking at your experience.
*Too much micromanagement
*Too many reorganizations

Advice to Management

Please listen to and communicate with your employees

    Pros

    Great Benefits, manageable workload, a lot of support from coworkers and management. If you can stay, stay. A lot of opportunity to move up with many baby boomers retiring...work schedules are very flexible and most people work from home if they can.

    Cons

    A lot of reorganization, not much certainty about transitioning from intern to permanent employees. Pathways Program was confusing to get into as I approached graduation from college. Very hierarchical and there is still substantial nepotism

  2. One of the Best in the Federal Government

    Pros

    The atmosphere is laid back and not too uptight. There are some opportunities for advancement and definately a secure job.

    Cons

    Currently in a hiring freeze due to limited government funds. Job openings are very, very competitive and the HR usually will disqualify you without actually looking at experience and just looking at time in grade or previous pay grades held.

    Advice to Management

    Rate employees fairly and actually help individuals advance throughout the organization.
