    If low morale, bad management and incompetent managers are what you're looking for, look no further than the U.S. Mint

    Pros

    A springboard to other Federal opportunities out side the Mint.

    Cons

    Low morale. Incompetent senior management. Highest percentage of employee complaints in the entire Treasury. No upward mobility. Management lacks direction. Bitter in fighting within departments. Openly ridicules contractor staff. High turnover of contractor staff so no consistent level of support. Quite frankly, the only people who want to work there are those that don't know any better.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Get rid of 99% of your senior staff (GS-15 and SES's). They work hard to suppress employee productivity and morale. The only way you're going to change the culture is to get rid of the existing one and the people you have in place are either unwilling or unable to change. Cut your losses and start fresh. You can't make a rotten apple fresh again. You need to cut your losses and just throw them out. The mid level management and staff there deserve at least that much. The worker bees there are a dedicated, hardworking group but they're burned out and it's because of the management you've hired. Give them managers they're proud to work for and productivity and morale will increase exponentially.

    Pros

    If you keep your head down, you can probably skate by without getting into too much trouble or having to pull too much overtime.

    Cons

    Senior management has no respect for the employees. The business is failing on all levels, and senior management seems to not care. Additionally, it seems like many people in senior management are in their positions due to favoritism, and those high performing "non-favorites" are being treated poorly and forced out of their positions.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Get rid of certain employees in management positions who clearly do not belong as a first step. Then begin to take a look at the product line and start working towards products that belong on the market.
