    I have been working at Federal Energy Regulatory Commission full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    The work-life balance is great for working parents. There is a telework policy that allows work from home occasionally. And the government benefits are a plus.

    Cons

    The salary structure is on the government pay scale, so limited upward financial mobility. Otherwise, working here is pretty great.

    Advice to Management

    Keep on keeping on.

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Federal Energy Regulatory Commission.

    Interview

    The process was porous because of the timing. FERC did a poor job scheduling the interviews and keeping me in the loop. I had an initial phone interview with one guy scheduled, then, I had someone else conduct the interview. After the first phone interview, the interviewer said someone would follow-up in a week. I never heard anything back, so in two weeks I called and the guy was surprised no one reached out to me. Finally, I was scheduled for a second interview, which was essentially three different interviews.

    The whole process seemed poorly handled. From last minute change of the interviewer, the interviewer who told me it was his last day at the company and no one following up. This FERC department seemed in disarray.

    Interview Questions

    • The questions were pretty standard and behavioral questions. They did not ask me any technical questions.   Answer Question
