    I have been working at Social Security Administration full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Can wortk credit hours; decent pay

    Cons

    I have worked here for over 20 years:
    - Promotions are based on (a) if a family works (or worked) in the building, (b) you are friends with a manager, (c) you clear cases off a list, even if it is done wrong.
    - If you haven't had a promotion in 5 years, you never will.
    - All excess work loads are dumped on the Benefit Authorizers
    - Mgmt asks for ways to improve the system, then immediately gives you reasons why the improvements can'tbe done
    - Leave requests are not done on a true seniority basis - it is done on a "roster system". The list was recently re-ordered and based by seniority, however, a 2-year employee can still bump a 30-year employee.

    Advice to Management

    Nothing I say will ever change anything because they are all just playing a game.
