    Pros

    Workplace flexibility is great. Secretary Perez is wonderful and sets a positive tone for the agency. The mission of the agency is great and relevant to the times. Most people are nice.

    Cons

    The bureaucratic red tape is ridiculous and strenuous. The clearance processes, approval processes, etc are unbearable and take away from the meaningful work. Definitely room for improvement.

    Advice to Management

    Management could use some improvement in interactions with employees.

    I have been working at US Department of Labor full-time

    Pros

    Great benefits and pay with plenty of time off. Sick leave is sweet.

    Cons

    Ungodly workload that never slows down. A person could work here 24/7 and not be caught up. It's absurd!

    Advice to Management

    Please hire additional staff.

    Pros

    The job you are doing is for the benefit of employees who work for private companies.

    Cons

    There are many administrative and useless requirements that burden an employee from doing their job

    Advice to Management

    Management needs to analyze the tasks required of employees and eliminate those that serve no purpose

    Rewarding work. It is nice helping people if they are being discriminated against.

    Pros

    My boss is really intelligent

    Cons

    I get paid a third of what others make who are barely even working. No respect or appreciation and very little pay. The benefits that people say are so great are really so bad that most doctors won't take them. More than half of the people I have to work with are idiots.

    Advice to Management

    The Secretary of Labor needs to stop giving everything to the unions so that management can get rid of ineffective personnel. The good, smart, hard-workers don't stay long, while the drug addicts, people who should have long reitred, and idiots who can't get another job stay. I will be leaving soon myself. If you'd like evidence why the federal government needs a complete overhaul, look at the Department of Labor.

    I have been working at US Department of Labor full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Important mission, meaningful work. Many smart and nice co-workers. Good location. Cafeteria has lots of options. Wide array of federal benefits. They are working to improve IT. Secret racquetball court.

    Cons

    Handfuls of poor performers protected by union and by top leadership afraid to deal with union excesses. High and average performers crushed by workloads; very poor work-life balance. Building has vermin. Workers occasionally furloughed.

    Advice to Management

    Listen to everyone, not just the union. They don't represent everyone. It's insulting to tout worker protection laws while running your own people into the ground.
