    I worked at US Mint part-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Relaxed casual call center environment.

    Cons

    Some weeks I couldn't even get 20 hours.

    Advice to Management

    Hire directly instead of using temp agencies. Decent pay, few hours, and no benefits is the reason not to go through a temp agency.

    I have been working at US Mint full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    TSP, 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.

    Cons

    Can 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 Management

    Upper 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.

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

    Pros

    A springboard to other Federal opportunities out side the Mint.

    Cons

    Low 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 Management

    Get 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.
