    Pros

    I had so much to say about it, I wrote a book called IRS Whistleblower

    Cons

    I wrote a second book called What to Do When the IRS is After You and if you can follow that book, then you will just not fit in the IRS. It can be abusive to both employees and taxpayers.

    Advice to Management

    Rotate people in and out of management every 5 years- listen to your employees, because senior management has no idea what to do.
