Pros

Good place to work. Management is fair; the pay is pretty decent if you put in the time; and the work is always varied. Morale is generally pretty good. The only problems come from the old GS system, which basically means you have to wait in line to advance. Unlike the private sector, the Government does not create jobs on a need and merit basis. They may advance you on merit, but the position is never CREATED on a merit basis. As such, you have to wait your turn in line.

Cons

Not enough attorneys to prosecute cases that come to our attention.

Advice to Management

Start to hire more attorneys to prosecute cases.
