Pros

The work life balance is great, the best I have ever experienced. Even though I am not putting in 60 hours a week like I was in the privates sector I feel like I get more accomplished in the 40 hours a week I work. Overall the people are great and take their job seriously, plus because most people are with the Federal Government for the long haul you really get a chance to develop some close friendships and working relationships. Great benefits: time off, federal holidays, sick leave and the retirement package can't be beat.

Cons

In the IT field the salaries a little bit lower than the private sector, but the "Pros" more than make up for it. Frustration with red tape, but again that is outweighed by the "Pros". The only way to get promoted is to change jobs.

Advice to Management

Listen to the people doing the work prior to making major policy changes to the way we work and IT solutions that are going to be implemented. Differing opinions are a good thing, you don't know it all.
