    Doesn't Recommend

    I have been working at US Bureau of Labor Statistics full-time for more than 10 years

    Pros

    Near transportation (Union Station) and free parking for carpools. Most jobs can telework at least part of the time. The building has a low-cost fitness center and a credit union onsite.

    Cons

    Young, white males are promoted to management ahead of older employees and females, BLS does not value experience. Older workers, especially women, are labeled as not being technically savvy. SES staff are a bottleneck in getting anything done, are unqualified, and promote this type of environment.

    Advice to Management

    Have your managers train in avoiding discriminatory practices. Value experience. Do not consider your longtime employees to be worthless.
