    Pros

    Fellow analysts were incredibly kind and helpful. I hope they all move on to much bigger and better positions where they are valued.

    Cons

    Whoever wrote the last review nailed it. I would not recommend working for the Office of Budget due to their complete lack of management. They do not set you up for success, they throw you in the fire and expect you to find your way out. There is no direction, no communication, and no training. I was also not treated kindly upon resignation.

    Advice to Management

    There’s a reason you can’t keep analysts—get honest feedback from your current employees on how to better your on-boarding/training. Remember that people who meet the qualifications for this position have a choice of employers from which to choose.

    I worked at Dallas (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Work life balance and pay

    Cons

    Department Management did not like change. They would rather say no to fly under radar with council and senior staff than be solution oriented and develop new processes. As someone who excels in developing efficiencyies it was a challenging place to work because you did not receive support.
