Pros

GAO is a good place to work if you're a good fit. They do promote work/life balance. They're are opportunities for growth. Some may find the work interesting.

Cons

The culture is overall passive aggressive.
The work is boring and there is no creativity.
Performance is supposed to be objective but the process is entirely subjective.

    Pros

    The people at GAO are dedicated to improving government, intelligent, and very capable. The collaborative spirit and high quality products are two other great aspects of GAO.

    Cons

    The only downside is that the budget, and henceforth promotions, hiring decisions, and pay raises are all contingent on Congress deciding to fund it appropriately. It is particularly difficult to plan ahead in years where the budget isn't passed prior to the new fiscal year and while the agency is functioning on a continuing resolution.
