    The return is no longer worth the investment.

    Pros

    Working from home if you're into that sort of thing. A Company car is provided with a paycheck deduction that covers gas, maint., and insurance. Your schedule used to be widely flexible and has devolved into a somewhat flexible schedule. The vacation is ok. You at least get health insurance. Overall, this would be a good job for someone either straight out of college or someone who is on retirement looking to supplement their income.

    Cons

    Lack of career opportunities and advancement unless you want to move to Washington, D.C. or middle-of-nowhere, PA. As an investigator you can be promoted 2 times and that's it. Workload practices make the workload unmanageable. The job security that this position used to have is history, as evidenced by the recent reduction in force. Insurance declines every year and becomes much more expensive . Almost a total lack of communication between upper management and the lower tiers and between the different departments as well (that are supposed to be working together). Employees are regularly put into no win situations in regards to the metrics upon which they are evaluated. Decisions are made concerning casework by individuals who have not touched cases in at least a decade.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Not that they will ever see this, but there is a need to re-evaluate how external and internal actions support the advertised mission and values of the company. Talented employees are leaving left and right for competitors or other careers and those who can't leave right away are chomping at the bit to do so. Contradiction within the same breath needs to stop when talking about goals and obligations. Communication and transparency when talking to the lower tiers is a must. Involvement of representatives from the lower tiers is a must as they're the ones who work the cases and do the work.
