    Approves of CEO

    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 Management

    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.

    Make sure that the technology actually helps people become productive, Don't just deploy for the sake of something new.
