        Competent, hard workers are rewarded with travel or "out of scope" stretch opportunities that are interesting. People are overall GREAT. DC office is really nice. Time off is pretty good - it's still a remote by choice workplace so generally people don't track your whereabouts all the time; if you get your work done you can pretty much keep the hours that work for you.


        If you work on a PMU in any capacity expect to be overstretched at all times. It's not enough to just support your program, you also have to be doing multiple other workflows to be considered "supporting" the division adequately. I cannot honestly say that I have a work-life balance. Staffing decisions are often completely baffling - people will be hired with no demonstrable work experience.

      Good morning, Has anyone ever been asked for an hour long second interview? Especially without discussing salary yet?! I have a two part second interview with a company next week that I am excited about, however, I still haven’t received a response when asking about salary, and it’s a total of an hour split between meeting with five people! Whew I’m a little nervous but more concerned that I may be wasting my energy for minimal pay.



      Good morning! I had a final interview the other day where I was tasked with presenting a project I was to work on. I presented and was told that my project was refreshing, I anticipated questions, explained my assumptions and there were no questions. In your experiences, is this a good sign? They said they were interested in how I speak and think. Good? Bad? Indifferent? I know everything is a 50/50 shot, but this was the first time I've been in this position, so I'm kind of anxious. Thanks



      I recently completed a 3 round interview. As I didn’t get the job I asked for feedback from the hiring managers. One responded and told me they think I great job during the interview. I was friendly, personable & professional. Provided an depth look into your experience, explained how I can be an asset to the organization/team, and shared my desire to grow and develop along the way. But the main advice was that I didn’t fully or better explain why I left my last company. Any thoughts on this?
