    Variety of work and great work environment

    Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)

    ProsGovernment agency enforcing safety law in the Commercial Trucking industry. If you have a law enforcement or legal background, this is a good agency to grow with.

    ConsI have worked for the government for many years, and I do not have any CONS to mention for FMCSA.

    Advice to Senior ManagementNone

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company

    Disfunctional

    Outreach (Current Employee)
    Washington, DC

    ProsGovernment job...benefits such as telework, flex hours, compensation - decent with locality pay

    ConsNo room for professional growth or advancement. Management does not completely understand how to retain employees.

    Advice to Senior ManagementDo an assessment with employees? NOT surveys - one on one confidential conversations to set process improvement practices into place.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend

    "Dysfunctional"

    Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)

    ProsIt's the government, with good benefits
    Local management is fairly good

    ConsAbsolutely NO upward mobility
    Mid- and upper-management is horrible - they promote to get incompetent people out of the way rather than rewarding talented people or successful managers
    Even within the agency, OPM is involved in ranking applicants - and they have no idea what we do, are capable of, or who should be referred. And why should they? They are literally 3000 miles away in an ivory tower!

    Advice to Senior ManagementAllow upward mobility for EVERYONE, not just those already at higher GS levels
    Use the talented people you already have! Get OPM out of the loop for hiring - they do not know what is required, what is done at the division level, or who should be interviewed.
    Communicate! Share! Play nice!

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend
