Good place to work

Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)

I have been working at US Department of Labor

ProsMost managers allow a good work life balance. The benefits are good. My coworkers are very dedicated to the mission of the agency and collaborate to make the work product the best it can be. The office environment is pleasant.

ConsRecognition for a job well done seems to skew toward managers rather than the staff who actually do the nitty gritty work. Less than stellar management aptitude in middle management. Limited to non-existent opportunity for training in new technologies.

Advice to Senior ManagementPay more attention to training and more balanced recognition of employees. Be more inclusive in soliciting employee opinion and feedback on initiatives and ongoing evaluation of programs.
