Former Contractor - Data Entry Operator in Austin, TX
Former Contractor - Data Entry Operator in Austin, TX
No opinion of CEO

I worked at IRS as a contractor (More than a year)

Pros

Lots of overtime during April, Night Differential for 630p-230a shift, casual atmosphere, no dress code, ability to listen to music / podcasts while working all night.

Cons

Despite having the best stats, was passed up from going from seasonal to full time. Much deference given to people having been there longer and not who was doing the best work.

Advice to Management

Give people full time jobs based on merit and not length of time with the company, and I would have stayed much longer.

    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.
