    I have been working at SEC

    Pros

    I work in Corp Fin and work-life balance is good for accountants. Benefits for Federal employees are also good (except for maternity leave - which doesn't exist).

    Cons

    Reviewing filings (Corp Fin) is monotonous.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    More open communication with staff (Corp Fin)

    I worked at SEC

    Pros

    It provides a good work-life balance and permits part-time workers. I was able to work three days a week and still devote time to my young children. I felt like I was contributing to the SEC on a meaningful level. At the same time, I also wanted to provide the best care possible for my family and this allowed me to have both.

    Cons

    The delay in decision making. I have since worked in litigation and I found I was extremely excited to be able to write a motion and get a decision and move on. Some of the toughest decisions at the SEC seem to just remain on the table. It seems like management needs to focus in on the priorities.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Decide on the priorities and then make a concerted effort to reach them.
