I worked at US Department of Treasury as an intern (less than a year)

Pros

The pace of work life was not too stressful, though it was perhaps too slow. Employees are granted a small transit subsidy. Nice area to work in (downtown DC). The interior of the Treasury Department building is quite beautiful though.

Cons

Low pay; bureaucratic process for getting things done (for example, getting the transit subsidy). Kitchen was quite bare. Not that much camaraderie among employees. The internally used websites are not well designed.

    I have been working at US Department of Treasury full-time

    Pros

    Treasury has some of the smartest, most motivated people I have seen in my caree (which was in finance in New York before joining the department). The issues people work on here affect the entire economy and truly make a difference.

    Cons

    It's a bureaucracy like one would expect in government - lots of folks need to sign off on anything new before it can happen. Also - compensation is on the standardize government scale and is not competitive with finance positions.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Better communicate to the public the role and activities of the department - there's not a broad understanding, even among finance-types, of the role Treasury plays in the economy.

    I worked at US Department of Treasury as an intern (less than a year)

    Pros

    Smart people, important work, people honestly committed to public service. You will work hard and be challenged, but my boss was smart and fair and gave high performing people lots of opportunities, autonomy, and support.

    Cons

    Pay is pretty bad if you're at the bottom. Depending on the administration in power, you may be working on things that you are totally against ideologically, but really across administrations the department is doing awesome things, even if much of it is secret.
