I have been working at Social Security Administration full-time (More than 3 years)

Pros

Health, Pension and full package that comes with government job plus plenty of vacation time

Cons

Measly salary, Inefficient Procedures, Outdated systems, Little Promotions, Hard to Fire incompetent people, bureaucracy at its finest

Advice to Management

Find better ways to motivate people to work and keep a lively environment. It's easy to get comfy in a nice managerial role but advocate for better procedures and think of new ways to complete the ever growing work at SSA. Less focus on individuals who spent 2 minutes extra on their lunch break and more time on creating an efficient work environment with happy employees would go a long way.

    I worked at Social Security Administration full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Dedicated employees who care about what they do and keep the American public they serve in mind at all times.

    Cons

    Excessive incrementalism and old-school Taylorism-based management philosophy makes this bureaucracy slower than most to change in any real way. Millions are spent on change and improvement planning and R&D efforts only to see the products of those efforts sit on a shelf and collect dust.

    Advice to Management

    Get out of your own way. Let the knowledgeable people who work for you do what they know how to do. Accept that change is inevitable as time goes on, and direct it in the most beneficial direction for the organization instead of trying to hold back the flood. Stop the petty empire building and put the organization's health and success as your target.
