I have been working at U.S. Government Accountability Office full-time (More than 5 years)
High quality people and projects. Work/life balance is an agency priority. GAO has broad access to federal agency information, and there are many opportunities to learn.
The organization is extremely risk-averse and process-focused, which can impact delivery and diminish the impact of the work. Pay is at least 10 percent below market value.
I applied online. The process took 4+ months. I interviewed at U.S. Government Accountability Office (Washington, DC).
Interview session was brief but professional. Interview took place in a panel format, and included mid to senior level management personnel. Questions were direct and directly attributable to the skills required as part of the job.
