Negative Outlook

I have been working at IRS full-time (More than 5 years)

Pros

*Flexible Hours
*Good Benefits
*Leave Earned
*Ten Holidays off per year

Cons

*If you're in certain clerical series, you cannot move up. For example, if you are a current 318 series, forget about applying for any jobs. When they look at your application, they throw it away as soon as they see your series, and don't bother looking at your experience.
*Too much micromanagement
*Too many reorganizations

Advice to Management

Please listen to and communicate with your employees

    I worked at IRS as an intern (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Great Benefits, manageable workload, a lot of support from coworkers and management. If you can stay, stay. A lot of opportunity to move up with many baby boomers retiring...work schedules are very flexible and most people work from home if they can.

    Cons

    A lot of reorganization, not much certainty about transitioning from intern to permanent employees. Pathways Program was confusing to get into as I approached graduation from college. Very hierarchical and there is still substantial nepotism
