The level of freedom, the variety of investigations, the opportunity to shape a new agency.

Agency has budget issues, things are still being finalized due to the agency being so new.

  1. It's hard to be let go; but, they value politically correct over efficient & effective implementation of the standard.

    Pros

    The job is not going away. Excellent job if you need EEO on your side. Stable. Good benefits. Good Mission, Vision. You work your 8 hours and you are done. Once you are hired, it is hard to be let go of.

    Cons

    Hard to get hired, lots of competition. In the administrative departments they tend to promote based on who is going to put up the biggest fuss, not who is most qualified (there are systems in place to mitigate that, but it still happens more frequently then they would admit). They value politically correct over efficient and effective implementation of the standard.

    Advice to Management

    Find a way to promote those who are consistently meeting excellent and/or outstanding. Find a way to promote your thinkers and problem solvers. Tact is very important but not at the cost of quality and quantity.

    Pros

    Good salary and benefits as a govt contractor.

    Cons

    Contractors are not brought into the "fold". You are an outsider and are reminded of that on a daily basis. Poor training, expected one to know everything through osmosis. Unless you have been a Federal or State govt worker for most of your life, don't try this if you've had the majority of your career in the private sector and corporate world. I worked for a big bully.

    Advice to Management

    Treat your contractors with some respect. They are there for a reason.
