I have been working at US Department of Defense Office of Inspector General full-time

Pros

Diverse organization with a great mission, protecting the warfighter. Ample opportunity for advancement and a committment to employee development.

Cons

Too many chiefs and not enough indians. Frequently, program offices are 1 deep. Additionally, the organization is fragmented and various components seem work against other compoents, especially when leadership agendas are not aligned.

Advice to Management

Live up to the motto on the DoD OIG Intranet site "A Diverse Organization Working as One Team", and hold Senior Exectives and middle managers accountable when they fail to demonstrate that attitude.

    Claims to be family oriented but lacks flexibility and understanding for working mothers.

    Eliminate entire Auditing division to include the Deputy IG.
