The Department of Labor is a very well-rounded place to start one's career

Intern (Former Employee)
Washington, DC

ProsThe Department of Labor provides a great job opportunity for those who are just getting out of college or grad school as well as seasoned employees. There are a number of special programs for MBA fellows, similar to that of other branches of the Federal Government. All the technology if fairly up to date and generally everyone is friendly. Hours are reasonable and flexible.

ConsThe Bureaucracy is frustrating at times, especially for new employees or individuals who are new to the GS pay schedule.

Advice to Senior ManagementI would recommend keeping up the good work and encouraging collaboration and innovation that is critical in this day and age.

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend
