I worked at US Department of Treasury full-time (More than 8 years)
Nice location, mostly good people to work with
Management allowed cliques to form, which were harmful
Advice to Management
do you job - LEAD!
I applied online. The process took 6+ weeks. I interviewed at US Department of Treasury (Clinton, UT).
1 Phone call with manager and Senior Executive, asking questions about managing servers, including migrating Exchange from an OLD version to Exchange 2003. Also asked about patching, building servers from scratch, running storage, remote access, and VPNs. Very good interviewer, and made the process very nice. Would work for that person again, no questions asked.
