    I worked at IRS full-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    Good place to work, good government benefits.

    Cons

    Salary is low, I suppose because of the benefits and because it is a government job. Also, government employees are being used for political football especially by Republicans. Morale is low; not a fun place anymore.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Management is really hamstrung because everything is dictated at a political level. Nothing they can do until an administration that values employees exists.

    Pros

    Opportunity to do public service in an enormous, complex organization that tirelessly serves millions, day in and day out. Great career growth opportunity within and for senior executives; life beyond excellent with major accounting and consulting firms.

    Cons

    Huge bureaucracy with sharp-tooth politicians ready to pounce and destroy. Major reputation risk as a senior executive -- one bad move and you're leading Fox News, and not in a good way.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Make more friends in Congress, if possible, to make life better for your workforce.
