    Working at FDA is not a lazy government job. There are exciting things happening in the world of drug development and the results are seen firsthand in your job. If you are interested in leading edge medicine this job is for you.

    Cons

    -Large workload
    -telecommuting expenses not reimbursed (i.e. internet, printer needs)

    The new FDA campus is running out of room and employees are expected to address this issue by working at home more and giving up desk space. The planning process for the campus was not well thought out. Additionally, the workload of senior management is large and this creates a bottleneck in completing tasks. Although they are willing to delegate some items, it is by no means done enough.

    Advice to Management

    -Listen to employees needs and act on them
    -Encourage more time with senior management
