    I have been working at US Army Material Command (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    The defined benefits plan and job security make this position a no brainer for any veteran with the requisite knowledge, skills, and abilities.

    Cons

    There is very little opportunity for upward mobility because assignments are controlled by a very small group of senior leaders with little transparency.

    Advice to Management

    Conduct a command climate survey with real questions and acknowledge the results by publishing them for all to review. The fourth floor is out of touch with the rank and file, simply too much congenial hand wringing.

    Pros

    Many bright minds in one place, plentiful resources, encouraging management.

    Cons

    Workforce is skewed towards 40+ yr olds, top heavy on retirement-eligible employees. Some infighting exists between groups for research resources, hindering collaboration. Furloughs etc. can occur at any time in today's political climate.

    NA

    Pros

    To assist in the protection and improve the quality of life for the soldier in the field

    Cons

    dishonest management practices. Must be a buddy with someone in management or on a selection panel to get promoted. Certainly not based on knowledge & skills. Its all who you know.

    Advice to Management

    Very poor management - Everything is back door & rumours control the employees, not fact.Must be a member of the good ole boys club to be treated fairly.

    Pros

    Great Training Programs, Full of Resources and support from management to develop your skills for your career and options to look at other career paths.

    Cons

    Federal Workers do not tend ot have the greatest moods. The "government pace" is not up to spead with the available resources and technological advances that are available to us today.

    Advice to Management

    Recognize those who are willing ot work hard, and work to motivate the slackers; try not to allow the slackers to "get away" with abusing the government benefits that they genuinely don't deserve.

    Pros

    Job stability, but with the furlough days pending, job stability is questionable. Number of weeks of vacation time, work schedule flexibility. A great place to work if you are in your 20 - 30s. They love young people and promoting young people.

    Benefits are expensive. Lack of promotion potential or career growth. Leadership. Furloughs. Pay freeze.
