    Pros

    -federal pension
    -past military time counts toward retirement
    -good pay
    -generous leave and credit hours are usually available

    Cons

    -extreme distrust of employees by management
    -promotions can be hard to come by
    -work can be tedious, little control for employees over how work is accomplished
    -overwhelming workload
    -no tuition assistance

    Advice to Management

    Allow more of your employees to telework. It is incredible to me that legal assistants are only able to work from home with paper records, not electronic records. Attorney and judges in ODAR are able to work from home on laptops. Try to build more of a team atmosphere. Set realistic goals. Conduct monthly training to update employees on regulations are rules that are constantly changing. Pitch in to help when it is the end of the month and the office is trying to reach the dispositions goal!!!
