    Pros

    Good benefits. That's what keeps people there.

    Cons

    * Poor management - Managers will throw you under a bus at the drop of a hat. If they aren't a puppet, they are managing by fear and intimidation. Those who ARE good managers are just CYA, protecting their own hides and positions.
    * No opportunity for advancement or development, unless you a certain kind of person

    Advice to Management

    Hard to give advice to a group of people who won't listen.

    Pros

    There are definitely more opportunities for managerial-level staff. There is greater knowledge sharing, more options for professional development, travel, telecommuting, etc. The Fed has great benefits. Many of the employees have 30 years of service or more and and are just holding out for retirement.

    Cons

    It is a very political organization where there is not as much opportunitiy for growth and advancement, especially if you are in an administrative position. There is a lot of "who you know, how well you are liked", etc. by upper management, although the Fed promotes fair and equal treatment of all employees. I found this to be quite the contrary on many occasions. The HR department is also disorganized.

    Advice to Management

    Treat employees on all levels equally.
