Pros

I am not sure about the "best" reason, but one of the big reason I am here is job security, benefits while on the job and then retirement benefits. Also, if you land in a good group - like luckily I did - you have the benefit of working for some very smart people.

Cons

Just like any government - or actually, any organization of this size (I do not think it is really a government v/s private sector, it is small v/s big issue), there is a lot of bureaucracy and hoops to jump to get anything done.

Advice to Management

small satisfactions go a long way. An example, a group pizza once a month - would go a long way.

    Brown noses advance well, You have to brag on yourself exceeding in all areas for performance bonus which some find fun since they sit around on smoke break 1/4 of day,allowing co workers to carry load.
    Must be able to handle high pressure situations during equiptment outages.

    Advice to Management

    get out of politics,Honor hard workers instead of special projects keep technical inspectors centrally located instead of in field office where they can be supervised

    Pros

    Federal Employees have great job security. Most projects that aren't understaffed and overworked are very flexible with when you take time off. Dress code is relaxed...probably too layed back sometimes. The location and pay are great considering the local economy does not make living in the area too expensive.

    Cons

    Management typically is incompetent. At least 50% of the people you work with aren't worth what they are paid either. You have to focus on the positive people to stay sane. Incentive and recognition aren't the strong points.

    Advice to Management

    Just manage the people...don't reward everyone especially when most of them aren't doing the work.
