Pros

You will have the opportunity to work and serve with some of America's finest individuals while serving your country as a civil service member.

Cons

Leadership constantly changes and so do does each of their agendas. It's a constant run in the hamster wheel. If you do not like change or not having control over it, its not the job for you.

Advice to Management

Rather than having personal agendas to get your next star or promotion think about the community that is affected and what is left behind once you leave.

    Pros

    The work environment is great but I guess it depends on your co-workers too. Leave and sick time are separate and you get plenty of it.

    Cons

    The past few years (11-13) we've been screwed on our cost of living. Supposedly civil service makes to much compared to private sector but if you look at the figures that's a joke.

    Advice to Management

    Have a sense of humor.
