    Pros

    Army Audit Agency encourages you to grow professionally and provides opportunities to advance your audit career. Some of the opportunities include advance degree programs; special developmental assignments; duty assignments in Korea, Hawaii, and the US; professional certifications; and training to prepare you for the next level.

    Working for Army Audit Agency is also an opportunity for me to serve my country in a civilian capacity to support our Soldiers and their families to ensure mission readiness and well being. We identify areas needing improvement, processes that need updating, better ways to allocate and spend dollars, and overall ways to ensure operations are effective and efficient.

    Cons

    None come to mind. Like any government job you get what you give. The potential is wide open and limited only by your imagination, skills, and desires. If you want it, you can achieve it. As Henry Ford so eloquently put it, "Whether you think you can, or think you can't...you're right."

    Advice to Management

    Leadership at Army Audit Agency practices transparency and inclusion. The work force knows what they know because of this very open policy and appreciates the confidence leadership has in its audit and support personnel. The work place is diverse with a great mix of people of all ages, all ethnicity's, with various skills and backgrounds.

    I have been working at US Army Audit Agency full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Rated top 5 of 320 best place to work in the Federal government for last 6 consecutive years. Eighteen office locations around the world, including Germany, Korea, and Hawaii.

    Cons

    Around 20-40% travel, which is either positive or negative depending on your personal viewpoint. Not really any significant cons in a best place to work.

    Advice to Management

    That's me so nothing to add.

    Negative Outlook

    I worked at US Army Audit Agency full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    The professionalism from visiting field offices and establishing a rapport with auditors and the supporting staff. The awareness of agency employee personal and professional involvement and life events made the environment feel like "family". The blogs to keep you informed on current events. The work-life balance is an important factor and several departments (budget, finance, human resources, and security) work very hard to ensure personnel are well taken care of.

    Cons

    If you are not an auditor you may feel devalued. The programs and information, newsletters and such, are tailored to include auditors and not "supporting staff". There are tremendous opportunities for educational and professional growth--just not offered to "supporting staff". There are town hall meetings to express concern and understand the work environment but it's only offered to the auditors, not the "supporting staff". Complacency coupled with a "don't care; it doesn't affect me" attitude tends to be the norm outside of executive management.

    Advice to Management

    Be inclusive of all government and contractual personnel. Make sure the work-life balance is conducive to the entire agency--not just the auditors. Tailor programs to benefit all facets of employment, those you have control over, and that allow personal and professional growth (leadership, sensitivity training, job knowledge, etc.). Get involved with personnel at lower levels (student trainees, GS1-GS11, etc.) to understand quality of life at the agency. Promote the permanent support staff you have onboard to value their work ethic commensurate with their skill set and longevity as you would any other employee. Lastly, make sure all agency employees are included in agency related programs and training, and valued as part of the team.

    U.S. Army Audit Agency has several programs to hire college graduates with no experience and provides great training to develop auditors.

    Pros

    Flexible work schedule, to include telework.

    Great culture.

    Cons

    All the downsides of working for a large and entrenched federal bureaucracy.
    Offices are old and worn. Furniture is outdated and unpleasant.
    Travel can be frequent, depending on team assignment.

    Advice to Management

    Keep doing great things.

    I worked at US Army Audit Agency full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Great work-life balance, time off, and friendly environment. Agency does allow telework but totally dependent on your individual manager. The work is not overly stressful. Employee regularly get together outside of work. The Agency provides a ton of training and professional development. They also hold golf tournaments, picnics, etc for employees and families.

    Cons

    There can be a lot of travel. Management changes their minds and decisions often. Strategic direction can be difficult to follow. This is a hierarchical organization with information flowing down the chain. Very little is generated bottom up. Most people decide to leave to pursue a promotion. This can be a hard organization to be promoted especially if you are not in "the club."
