    Pros

    Structured pay raises. Promotions and hiring are based soley on qualifications that can be quantified in a points system. No favors, mostly fair.

    Cons

    It's a myth that your job is bullet proof. You can get fired, especially within 1st year and if you mess up too much.
    Government workplace is somewhat military and people hide behind policy rather than use common sense. Lots of people here are lifers and talk non-stop about their retirement countdowns, This environment is not supportive of younger folk. Promotions are based on seniority than merit.

    Advice to Management

    Try to boost moral to retain young people and talent.

  3. If you want security it is a decent place to work

    Pros

    Great to work with brilliant minds who are mostly friendly. Access to a lot of resources and plenty of support for career advancement.

    Cons

    Way too much "office politics" between people who all want to be at the top of the food chain. Also, within the office it appears difficult to move up; I've actually seen people be demoted.

    Advice to Management

    Act like the adults you are and work things out....it's ok to share the power. Continue to provide career help to students and new employees.
