    Approves of CEO

    Pros

    The work is almost always interesting, challenging and important. You can't say that everywhere you work. I am never bored.

    Cons

    Despite reports to the contrary, many federal employees actually work long hours. The pace in some offices can be grueling, and of course there is little in the way of overtime, etc. The most frustrating aspect is the inability to move ahead based on performance. Budget constraints and management decisions can have a big impact on career trajectory.

    Advice to Management

    Don't be disdainful of those that want a federal career (the view of some political appointees). Support that decision and realize that you want the cream to rise to the top through promotions and more strategic placement of employees.


  2. "A place with many challenges and opportunities but requires more talented indivduals to take advantage of both."
