    I have been working at U.S. General Services Administration full-time

    Pros

    Professional colleagues, good benefits and job security (all Federal Government). Great training opportunities and beautiful workplace.

    Cons

    Bureaucracy and hierarchy takes it's toll over the years. Management could be better. Policies are all over the place. Don't expect the government to give you paid parental leave without using all your sick leave, or childcare expenses. Pay barely survivable in the Bay area if you have kids.

    Advice to Management

    If you ask employees to advocate for a new style of working, embrace that style yourself.

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    The process took 2+ months. I interviewed at U.S. General Services Administration.

    Interview

    Telephone interview. Asked 5 questions in panel format. Questions only pertained to the organization, Office of Mission Assurance, and items that only current employees would really know. Panel was great and very informative. The bad thing is that HR never responded with a status.
