    I have been working at U.S. Government Accountability Office full-time (more than a year)

    Pros

    Senior level management at the director level is astounding.

    Cons

    Very conservative environment, not for the liberal minded. A lot of old people. Organization does not really have any power. You basically shuffle paper all day. If you are a young person, think of the movie Office Space, that is actually how you will feel if you work there.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    You cannot put analysts as a mangers. In order to be a manager, you cannot just mange projects but you need to know how to manage people. Make your analysts take human capital training before promoting them.
