    I have been working at Social Security Administration full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Excellent co-workers. Excellent Managers/Supervisors. Flexible work schedule. Awesome training. Pleasant environment.

    Cons

    My career interest is hard to get into with SSA. I do not have HR experience with the Government. Only in the private sector. Also, as a TSR I wish within the past few years I could have done a 30 day detail in my career of interest instead of at a local office. Although I did enjoy and gain a lot of knowledge while there. There wasn't a big selection of where, if selected, we could go.

    Advice to Management

    You are doing an awesome job!
