Pros

Growing fast in terms of bringing people on board, and a lot of opportunities are available to learn within the organization. Training seems to be a priority and has management support. Many ideas are nutured and may become implemented based on merits...

Cons

Because of the fast growth many internal operations are undefined and flying by the seat of your pants is not that uncommom. There are not clear process for the simple things and that also means there are not clear processes or procedures for the difficult as well. Many times a majority of ones time is spent defining not what needs to be done, but how it should be done and without any clear guidance or process.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Ensure the simple stuff is defined and that a clear process is developed for doing those simple things...

    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.
