    I have been working at Farm Credit Administration

    Pros

    The pay and benefits are great. The people are great to work with. Th work schedule is flexible to allow for greater work-life balance.

    Cons

    I am not in a position in my life where I want to be traveling as I want to settle down with a family. Location is farther than I like to drive each day.

    Focus on financial institution audit and follow up, writing reports based off the 5 Cs of credit.

    Pros

    Interesting, challenging work with good people who care about doing a good job.

    Cons

    A little insular, sometimes can be poloitically driven, not a lot of variety in tasks or outcomes.

    I have been working at Farm Credit Administration

    Pros

    This agency does pay incredibly well, yet hiring doesn't seem overly competitive. Everyone has their own office (no cubicles). The cafeteria provides excellent food and service, and is very affordable.

    Cons

    It's a government agency, so take that for what it's worth. Overall, it's definitely not exciting if you work in one of the support offices. Some of the long time employees are a little disinterested (but still great people for the most part), a few are incompetent, and some are very petty and hypercritical of their coworkers' performances.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    It's not the kind of advice that a government agency can implement, but quite simply, senior management needs to clean out those long-time, mid-management level employees who are incompetent, unproductive, and vindictively counterproductive.
