    Current Employee - Anonymous Employee
    Current Employee - Anonymous Employee

    I have been working at U.S. Office of Personnel Management full-time (more than 10 years)

    Pros

    Steady employment, steady salary, steady benefits. For the most part colleagues are excited about the mission and work really hard every day.

    Cons

    Lack of strategic thinking and innovation from leadership team. For instance we are years behind in technology as compared to other agencies. Most employees who require cell phones for the job are still issued flip phones with no internet or text capability or functionality. The laptops they issue are old and refurbished. The IT department secures enough at a 1:1 ratio so when a laptop, printer, cell phone, GPS goes down, there is usually no way to quickly replace the broken piece of equipment.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Upper management should learn to communicate effectively with rank-and-file. Certain leaders in the organization believe knowledge is power - literally. They believe the rest of the adults in the organization are "protected" by not sharing information. Recent Employee Viewpoint Survey results shared with my team support that belief too.
