    A good place to work, leaving valuable time for enjoying family and friends.

    Worker (Current Employee)
    Denver, CO

    ProsTSP, or the government's version of the 401K, is by far the best benefit. Company matched contributions and flexibility on taking loans for general purpose or for primary residence, give it flexibility and ease of use.

    ConsCan get bureaucratic, having a structure that goes all the way up to Washington. Also a military type management structure, so you can take that as negative or positive I guess.

    Advice to Senior ManagementUpper management doesn't seem too bad in giving positive direction, albeit if only symbolic. Too many levels of management can be seen as part of the problem.

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company

    Very interesting place to work

    Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)

    ProsSome employees are very nice and really try to do their jobs. Also headquarters is in a very good location.

    Consthe place is just dysfunctional. People have just been there so long that they just don't care anymore.

    If low morale, bad management and incompetent managers are what you're looking for, look no further than the U.S. Mint

    Anonymous Employee (Former Employee)
    Washington, DC

    ProsA springboard to other Federal opportunities out side the Mint.

    ConsLow morale. Incompetent senior management. Highest percentage of employee complaints in the entire Treasury. No upward mobility. Management lacks direction. Bitter in fighting within departments. Openly ridicules contractor staff. High turnover of contractor staff so no consistent level of support. Quite frankly, the only people who want to work there are those that don't know any better.

    Advice to Senior ManagementGet rid of 99% of your senior staff (GS-15 and SES's). They work hard to suppress employee productivity and morale. The only way you're going to change the culture is to get rid of the existing one and the people you have in place are either unwilling or unable to change. Cut your losses and start fresh. You can't make a rotten apple fresh again. You need to cut your losses and just throw them out. The mid level management and staff there deserve at least that much. The worker bees there are a dedicated, hardworking group but they're burned out and it's because of the management you've hired. Give them managers they're proud to work for and productivity and morale will increase exponentially.

    One of the worst places to work in government.

    (choose Not to Answer for Fear of Retaliation) (Current Employee)
    Washington, DC

    ProsIf you keep your head down, you can probably skate by without getting into too much trouble or having to pull too much overtime.

    ConsSenior management has no respect for the employees. The business is failing on all levels, and senior management seems to not care. Additionally, it seems like many people in senior management are in their positions due to favoritism, and those high performing "non-favorites" are being treated poorly and forced out of their positions.

    Advice to Senior ManagementGet rid of certain employees in management positions who clearly do not belong as a first step. Then begin to take a look at the product line and start working towards products that belong on the market.
