I would recommend DoL

Program Analyst (Current Employee) Washington, DC

ProsThe atmosphere is very informal and comfortable. The Department offers an excellent work life balance and is very respectful of employees' personal time. The location of the Frances Perkins building provides excellent access to the entire city. The work is interesting and most staff are very professional.

ConsThis is a bureaucracy and many of its internal management processes are slow and archaic. As with most other non defense agencies promotions, hiring and transferring can be very difficult. The human resources staff seem confused and rarely are helpful about conveying information. The promotion potential is very hard to gauge over the long term.

Advice to Senior ManagementProfessionalize human resources and make more opportunities for internal employee development. Skills can stagnant and this can only hurt the effectiveness of the agency over the long term.

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend
