    Pros

    Some positions pay a livable wage - - most do not and are 25-40% less than private sector position.

    Cons

    No promotional system. Favored few get pay raises while higher quality staff are discouraged to excel. Training only provided if federal government pays for it. Academic studies and hard data analysis are irrelevant. Only majority partisan views are valid - - forget the facts. Management does not like personnel that are smarter than them.

    Advice to Management

    View and reward personnel as assets.

    Pros

    I very much enjoy my job. The majority of my coworkers are enjoyable. The work is interesting. Advancement is encouraged. Training is available. The pay is competitive in most ways. The benefits are great.

    Cons

    There are done people who have had their jobs for a long time and do not perform. It is not often that people who underperform or who are no longer qualified for their work receive any sort of corrective action.
