I have been working at U.S. Government Accountability Office full-time (More than 3 years)

Pros

Flexible work schedule, which makes it family friendly. Depending on the team you're on, you may work on one project for up to about a year or on several at once. Work you are doing is for Congress and sometimes leads to saving the government money, testimonies, and news media attention.

Cons

Antiquated IT systems and equipment, but some of it was postponed to avoid furloughs and/or RIFs. Hiring and COLA has been non-existent for the past few years. Hard to be promoted after the first promotion level (2A).

Advice to Management

Be more attentive to the "retired on active duty" types, because the younger workers get discouraged. Like that you put employees first in tight budgetary times.
