I have been working at US Department of the Interior

Pros

Mission. Taking care of the nation's special and protected spaces; one in every 5 acres in the U.S. is a noble and exhilarating mission. Definite job satisfaction from making a difference.

Cons

The most frustrating thing about working in DOI is that decisions Drag On Indefinitely (the real meaning of the DOI acronym) and are made by a choice few budget and policy types in DC rather than the technical experts in the field.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Listen to the folks outside the beltway.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Get rid of dead weight. Managers and employees both. You have ambitious people working for you that can step up if you push aside the dead weight.

    Pros

    The mission is fabulous, a great opportunity to make a difference doing things for the nation that truly matter.

    Cons

    Organizational culture at the senior levels in DC is broken beyond repair. Extremely little coordination at senior career and political ranks across Bureau / DOI lines -- ongoing competition, bickering and backstabbing impede what could be great collaborative work.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Require career SES leadership work on collaborative projects that involve multiple bureaus / offices.
