    Approves of CEO

    I have been working at US Patent and Trademark Office full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    The hours are flexible and there are many telework options, including exclusively working from home, which gives employees the ability to work from anywhere in the country. The promotion requirements are clearly written and laid out in black and white without any office politics involved. The pay is good and there are options of earning overtime and bonuses.

    Cons

    Some attorneys are difficult to deal with and are uncooperative.

    Advice to Management

    The worst thing a manager can do to demoralize an employee is micromanage, so please avoid that to keep employees happy.
