Pros

Gov't Jobs still have the best benefits. Outstanding time off. Normally 40 hours for salary position. Budget cuts like everyone else, do your part and don't take the pens home! Matter in fact if you want one that writes, bring your own. Not to many social interuptions if you don't have a Phd., Peaceful!

Cons

Maturity levels are very low, as you might expect from young Phd's, Interns and Fellows. High School and clicky attitudes. Keep your sense of humor they will eventually grow up. If you are there to make friends it could be a con.. Obvious basic management skills training missing.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Get over yourselves and take some management classes. When you earn true respect it will breed healthy morale. There is a big difference If your subordinates are only respecting your degree or position.

    Pros

    Decent benefits, time off when needed, free parking, easy access to services if a veteran.

    Cons

    Beurocratic, good old boy management, clickish, if not a veteran you will always be the outsider, infrastructure and management programs stuck in the 70s and before.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Move into the current century. Update technologies. Reevaluate HR and management strategies. Recognize, reward, and develop from within.
