    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Because I was in a student position I felt like I was looked down upon. But really I was a 25 year old who was getting my masters degree and I didn't appreciate feeling like "the child". Many of the workers have vetran status and that is how they got into government. So it seems like many it was the only job they have ever had. So creativity was not what I expected from a government agency. Some management are just bidding their time till retirement.

    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.
