Some of the downsides of working at USDA Forest Service include: poor headquarters staff, affirmative action, lack of community, insulated agency, poorly managed, aging workforce.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Stop promoting poor employees simply to get them out of your department - do the extra leg work to correct their behavior. They'll either become better employees or be fired - either way, improving your agency productivity.
