I worked at US Citizenship and Immigration Services

Pros

Federal employment is a safe and stable place to work. Pay increases are typically provided regularly. Performance goals are usually easily achieved

Cons

Promotion potential is based on tenure within the federal system, not on knowledge or abilities. Federal retention rules make it nearly impossible for non-performers to be removed from the system.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

When hiring from the private sector, the high achievers look for responsibility, advancement opportunities and meaningful recognition. They expect more open lines of communication. You must be flexible in order to maintain top performers. Low performers will be content to do the minimum and not improve your operations.

    I worked at US Citizenship and Immigration Services as an intern (less than a year)

    Pros

    A lot of writing, so you'll be able to add to your writing sample. And they give you a tour of some of the other immigration agencies, so it was a good introduction to immigration work for the federal government.

    Cons

    They didn't have a good place for the externs to work. We were all in the same room, and sometimes it was hard to get work done.
