PBGC is a great place to gain valuable experience without working killer hours, but there are some annoyances.

I have been working at Pension Benefit Guaranty

Pros

You get a lot of responsibility right off the bat. Many of the cases are very high profile and involve very high sums of money. If you put the effort in, you can learn a lot.

Cons

It is the federal government, so there is some bureaucracy. The pay is good for government, but about half of what you would make at a big firm. There isn't much in the way of support staff, so you will be your own secretary, paralegal, etc.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Create some new GS15 positions so that attorneys have something to strive for. Revamp the review process so that certain supervisors can't just reward their favorites year after year.

    I have been working at Pension Benefit Guaranty

    Pros

    The work is not hard, and there expectations were low so I stood out as a high performer pretty quickly.

    Cons

    It is a pretty stereotypical government agency.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Not much can be changed now due to the new directives being implemented, but I am sure once the ball gets rolling on that there will be places for improvement.

    I have been working at Pension Benefit Guaranty full-time (more than 8 years)

    Pros

    We have a fairly collegial atmosphere in my department. Everyone seems willing to help each other out.

    Cons

    Other departments can sometimes interfere with the work you are trying to do. They either have conflicting interests or squabble for purely political reasons.
