    I have been working at US Bureau of Labor Statistics full-time

    Pros

    *Federal Benefits (Health, Pension, Thrift Saving Account, Life Insurance)
    *DOL FCU Checking Account of at least 2% annual dividends
    *Flexible Work Schedule
    *Very fair amount of leave time

    Cons

    *Work can become mundane.
    *Seems to be no sense of future budget within BLS
    *Expensive chairs, but limited employment

    Advice to Management

    Have better communications with the Department of Labor for future employment and budget constraints. More employment is needed if Indexes are to remain published
