I have been working at Social Security Administration

Pros

Job security- it's considered an essential position- in case of a govt shutdown, you will still get paid, though it may get delayed.

Cons

Terrible training program, unprofessional, deceiving in the hiring process as far as what expectations and responsibilites of job are, the moral is very low, employees are "stuck" at SSA.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Restructure the entire classroom training, hire more professional workers, fire or retire workers who don't produce.

    I have been working at Social Security Administration

    Pros

    Compensation is decent for public sector job
    Nice work-life balance
    Overtime occasionally available

    Cons

    Career advancement is virtually non-existent. For example, promotions are few and far between. SSA-ODAR says that it is not a "numbers' organization, but it is. Promotions are based on high producers, which are normally people cranking out 4-5 cases a today without any real substantive analysis. Detail opportunities are also reserved for a "chosen" few. I would say that the analyst job is great for someone who has no aspirations of career advancement and enjoys rote work.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Promote based on quality not quantity of work.

    No opinion of CEO
