    2009 Summer Intern in the Information Technology and Finance Administration Department

    Summer Intern (Former Employee) Washington, DC

    Pros-For a summer intern still in college, the pay is top notch.
    -Friendly team members.
    -Flexible schedules (I worked 9 hour days and took every other Friday off).
    -Company culture is teriffic.
    -Employees are valued for their hard work.
    -Fun internship activities (ex. Boat tour on the Potomac).

    Cons-Sometimes the work felt mundane.
    -Depending on which department and supervisor you land, you can either have a great or horrible experience.
    -Some employees aren't the sharpest tools in the shed.
    -In 2010, they completely redesigned the internship program, by randomly selecting interns, and not inviting back successful interns, as well as children of staff members who had recently been interns.
    -Possible OCC and OTS merge means job scarcity and limited opportunity for recent graduate employment.

    Advice to Senior Management-Change the internship program back to how it was in 2009 and before.
    -Allow interns to fill out a survey of their strengths, weaknesses, and interests, to better allocate resources.

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend

    Is it too late?

    Anonymous Employee (Current Employee) Washington, DC

    ProsPay and benefits are great

    ConsWhen the president of the United States says that he's going to abolish where you work and politicians liken senior management's abilities to that of meter maids (not that there's anything wrong with meter maids), seriously decreases employee morale and faith.

    Advice to Senior ManagementAn organization is built by people, not by ego. Treat staff as adults, and you will get a gown-up organization.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend
