    I have been working at US Department of Health and Human Services full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Some slightly interesting work, which supports programs that contribute to society.

    Cons

    A LOT of administrative work. Given the lack of higher level positions within current agency limitations, there is no opportunity for truly interesting work utilizing my education or contributing to society.

    Advice to Management

    Change the current agency limitation that limit availability of higher level positions to provide opportunities for truly interesting work utilizing my education or contributing to society.

    Interview

    Interview was very intense. It was panel style. They allow you to follow along with a list of questions you are provided with. The questions were behavior based. I received an email stating I passed the interview portion. They asked for a copy of my social security card and driver license. I have not heard anything back yet
