I worked at Federal Government full-time

Pros

There is a clear training path for new employees to follow that is easily accessed. The administrative support is speedy.

Cons

If there is financial trouble with the government's budget, this could complicate your income levels and work schedule.

Other Employee Reviews for Federal Government

  1. "Great opportunities working for the Federal Government"

    Pros

    Great benefits and good pay commensurate to the area. Despite sequestration and the financial uncertainties in the Defense sector, there is still a need to fill qualified applicants into long-term positions.

    Cons

    The commute can be long if working in DC. For many, this alone is the major factor in working for the government in Washington, DC.

    Advice to Management

    Increase the scope and responsibility for motivated employees. Provide mentorship programs and initiatives/compensation that value the contributions and ideas of your employees. Give accurate and timely counseling, both positive and areas for improvement.


  2. "Not Exciting But Solid"

    Bureaucratic, frequently mired in politics. difficult to get things done. Very toxic environment right now. congress makes us dysfunctional by cutting our resources.

    Stop reorganizing and listen to front line staff more.
