I have been working at US Department of Labor

Pros

Okay place to work. Flexible hours, casual work environment

Cons

I'm only in a term position, so there is no stability in the job. I will be out of work in a year and there is no efforts to keep the seasoned employees that hold term positions.

No opinion of CEO

    I worked at US Department of Labor

    Pros

    Steady Work, you will never be lacking for cases to work
    Good Benefits, especially for a family
    Reasonable work environment

    Cons

    Office politics
    Tenure generally equates to a person's level, regardless of their abilitiy to do the job
    Some cases and the individuals being represented, can become personally challenging or scary, when the person turns their aggression directly to you
    Some cases will challenge your morale compass, especially when you must deny a claim on a technicality and you want to help the person

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Try to mix teams up to eliminate some of the office politics and favoritism

    Pros

    The 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.

    Cons

    This 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 ManagementAdvice

    Professionalize 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.
