Pros

Interesting work, talented co-workers, the feeling that I'm doing something important, excellent work-life balance, hard work is rewarded, innovation is encouraged, good salaries, excellent benefits, we are encouraged to partake of a myriad of ongoing continuing education, technical and career training, job security.

Cons

For someone who comes from the private sector it can be hard to get used to the fact that it takes longer to get stuff done. That said, the increase in execution time is given by the fact that there are so many checks and balances built into the system - we are working with taxpayer money, after all.

Advice to Management

Do not rely on contractors - federal employees are as talented, capable and intelligent as any contractor out there and, unlike contractors, most of us feel a true connection and loyalty to our place of work.

    Pros

    It was a good place to work but since it was only a temporary job and only comes around once every ten years, you cannot get your heart into it.

    Cons

    It does not last long enough.

    Advice to Management

    It does not last long enough.
