Pros

Intelligent, competent employees with a good sense of mission and where they fit.

Decent salary.

Some very experienced upper management professionals.

Good work life balance.

Cons

Like most government agencies, filled with unnecessary and inefficient bureaucracy.

Some incompetent and/or lazy employees that find themselves a corner to burrow into for the long haul.

Upper management tends to be out of touch to the daily needs of mid level managers and employees.

In today's political climate, employees are seen more as an enemy than as a friend to the public.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

More collaboration with employees. Management should be results driven rather than policy driven.

Recommends
Neutral Outlook
No opinion of CEO

    Pros

    Tons of leave.. more leave than you could ever use (I think I have about 400 hours right now), telework-friendly.

    Cons

    No training, no opportunities for advancement due to Federal pay freeze and sequestration. Employees that do work must carry the workload for all the 'dead weight' employees that have been there for years and just come in to collect a paycheck. Work is extremely unrewarding and it is frustrating to know that ideas will go unnoticed, hard work unrewarded, etc. I don't even know where to begin...

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    What's the point? Nothing will ever change in Federal Government.
