    Current Employee - Secretary in New Carrollton, MD
    Current Employee - Secretary in New Carrollton, MD

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

    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 ManagementAdvice

    Please listen to and communicate with your employees
