I have been working at Social Security Administration full-time (More than a year)

Pros

Very flexible with leave and credit hours. Flextime adds a great deal of convenience. Flexiplace, when you finally get it, is very nice.

Cons

Max of 2 days off per year for CLEs. Will not pay for or reimburse attorneys for CLEs. Starts attorneys at a lower pay grade than most other agencies. Career ladder ends lower than most agencies. Competitive promotion opportunities are few within OAO itself.

    I worked at Social Security Administration full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Enjoyed helping beneficiaries and the salary.

    Cons

    Totally inept management that mistreats employees. Managers are mostly people who couldn't perform technical work and were passed onward and upward when they failed at other jobs.

    Advice to Management

    Retire and put some qualified people in management
