    I have been working at Consumer Financial Protection Bureau full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Management sees its employees as its greatest assets. In my own opinion, management willingness to accommodate every employees needs including the ones that are nonsensical could actually demoralized the high performers.

    Cons

    Management sometimes bend too much backward to accommodate unappreciative employees. Performance appraisals should be changed to a system that will encourage everyone employee to want to perform at a high level and should include impressive compensation for high performers.

    Advice to Management

    You cannot please everyone.
