I worked at US Army Corps of Engineers as a contractor (More than 3 years)

Pros

It was a very laid back environment and my co-workers were very nice and willing to help.

Cons

A lot of older people did not want to teach others in fear of "job security"

    I have been working at US Army Corps of Engineers full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Very friendly place to work, laid back. Most of the time if you are unhappy they will find another position for you where you'll be a better fit.

    Cons

    Pay isn't the best (but it's gov work, so you give and take). Doesn't seem to be a lot of room to move up.

    Advice to Management

    Fire people who deserve it (people who always come in late and leave early/take 2 hour lunches/never do any work but play on facebook all day)

    I have been working at US Army Corps of Engineers as an intern (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Very easy monotonous work, good internship for a freshman or sophomore looking to get their foot in the door for experience in their field of study

    Cons

    Really difficult to get anything done. Some people are willing to help you and point you in the right direction while most others just play games with you. Some of the contractors under the government programs are terrible to deal with. People who dont do much are usually the ones promoted because management is in fear of losing their jobs to someone smarter than them. Some employees are treated very well while others are not. Overall, a very unprofessional place to work.

    Advice to Management

    Do the right thing instead of hiding it or forcing it off on someone else. Treat those employees that want to work
