    Pros

    Work is interesting and people are generally nice to work with.

    Good managers are few and far between. An inability of managers to delegate can lead to employee underutilization.

    I have been working at US Department of the Interior full-time (more than 5 years)

    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.
