talk to the people who actually have to do the tasks you think will modernize the agency; stop cowtowing to politicans and outside entities who are clueless. Think about what you ask us to do and if there is a ROI

    Approves of CEO

    I have been working at IRS as an intern (Less than a year)

    Pros

    When the work actually comes down, it's a wonderful place to work - especially for people with legal backgrounds who don't want to practice as conventional lawyers. The work/life balance is the best there is and the hours are always very flexible.

    Cons

    This flexibility comes with problems - deadlines don't seem to matter and colleagues' being in and out of the office at what seem like random times can get confusing.


  2. "No way to move up"

    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
