    I have been working at OSHA full-time (more than 10 years)

    Pros

    Opportunity to be exposed to different types of industries.
    Opportunity to travel 80% of the time.

    Cons

    No support from Management regarding training, feedback on employee performance issues, and not guidance on satisfying agency quotas for number of inspections per year and amount of time devoted to report completion.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Spend more time training employees and educating employees on what is expected of them.

    I have been working at OSHA

    Pros

    Job security is great as are the work benefits. The salary compensation for safety and health professionals is better than average The flexibility for both worktime and where you work from is excellent. The large variety of industriies a compliance officer interfaces with provides great opportunity to learn a multitude of manufacturing processes. The multiple workplaces encountered while working as a compliance officer also allows for a large range of skills needed/learned to perform your job effectively.

    Cons

    Quantity or output of work is valued more than work quality. Aggressiveness in workstyle behavior is highly valued even if it means compromising the truth. Management support is poor. Leadership style is hands-off and communication to field personnel is limited.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Allow honest input from field staff to provide a variety of data points to help guide operational policy. Stop relying soley on quantitative statistics to determine the direction of the agency. Daily operations are still performed by human beings.
