I have been working at U.S. General Services Administration full-time (More than 5 years)

Pros

This agency is excellent for someone who can work in a very mobile setting.

Cons

Leadership has lost values, low low morale everywhere. Promotions and training are out the window. No prospects for growth or hope.

Advice to Management

Consider listening to the bottom feeders of the organization, allow for people to get promotions, and remove stagnation and waste where it really matters...

    Pros

    You can have an impact beyond just this agency. Some are focused on innovation and improving government. Super-flexible work schedule.

    Cons

    What a pathetic culture. Incentives are all wrong. It is a very hard place to work. It seems like there are no systems--that every time you need to do timekeeping, hiring, contracting it's like it's never been done before. Staff offices think that their job is to tell you what you should do rather than provide services to program staff. No reason to learn anything, though, because next time it will be handled differently. And for an agency that is expert in acquisitions it is impossible to get anything through contracting.

    Advice to Management

    Quit nibbling at the edges and get your act together. Line offices spend too much time doing work that staff offices are paid for--and get crummy results. We should be able to hire and contract without such grief. And if you are committed to telework, make it easier to have people who are working remotely participate. We use personal gmail accounts for google hangout because the "telepresence" tools just don't work.

    Stop chasing fads and develop a real culture.
