    Pros

    Job security, and supervisors let you do your work without micro-managing. Good starting point in your gov't career.

    Cons

    No room for growth, get "drafted" to do other duties that are not in the job description. Things don't change much around here, its the same thing everyday so much that if your not careful you will get complacent.

    Advice to Management

    Hire more persons that want to do the work and stop drafting those who already have 50 to 60% of their plate full.

    I worked at US Department of Justice full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Worked with very smart, capable attorneys on some interesting law enforcement issues that were on the front page of national newspapers. Criminal Division handles some cases/issues of national significance.

    Cons

    Leadership and management are not important. Not a team-oriented work environment. Winning cases was emphasized. Lack of camaraderie among the attorneys.

    Advice to Management

    Need to offer some career development, especially at the management level. Would improve the work environment if SES leaders more proactively developed some camaraderie among the Chiefs and the GS-15 managers to more proactively address the challenging issues.
