  1. "Great benefits, but too much centralization"

    Pros

    The benefits are great and the pay is way higher than any other entry level position right out of undergrad.

    Cons

    The government red tape that has to be worked through before anything be done is ridiculous. No one is able to make any decisions at a local level, and everything has to be ran through multiple hoops.

    Advice to Management

    It won't happen, but DC needs to allow more decision making power at the local level. It's almost impossible to accomplish anything.

    Pros

    Staff were willing to help when questions on assignments arose. Training on office related tools were provided as a new employee. Three day weekends due to federal holidays, which you are paid for. Job security like no other and friendly work staff.

    Cons

    Job duties can get very monotonous. If a straightforward workday is your style than government employment is right for you.

    Advice to Management

    Provide more team related activities during meetings or even outside of work hours to provide more cohesion between younger and older employees..
