I worked at USRA full-time (More than 3 years)

Flex working hours.

Cons

No opportunities for career advancement within the organization. No professional development. Management needs to better communicate with the employees instead of intercepting their emails.

    Pros

    You have flexibility in working hours. You sometimes have the possibility for telecommute.

    Cons

    A relatively large number of managers. Managers make decisions and listen to each other only.Managers are paid to maintain their management positions. Employees are not involved in the way the place is managed. The way the tasks are distributed to the employees are not always appropriate. As an employee, you are often given tasks for which you are overqualified.

    No opportunities for professional growth and no challenging work.

    Not a family friendly place.

    Managers do screen and intercept employees personal emails.

    Pros

    Great deal of personal flexibility while working for Uncle Sam.

    Cons

    You are hired to do a job. Management is highly compensated for expanding the business and increasing revenue. Your job is to keep the customer happy. There is no opportunity for advancement within USRA. Use this position as an opportunity to feather your nest and move on to the next position.

    Advice to Management

    HR development would help in improved customer service.
