    I worked at US Bankruptcy Court full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Great place to work true Agile approach. Very flexible times. I would recommend to anybody. Great place to learn small teams

    Cons

    They need more room for teams there. The place has very small rooms with many people sitting in different rooms. Teams members should be more close to each other.

    Advice to Management

    Try to have more room for people.

    I worked at US Bankruptcy Court full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Good managers were a hard find here. But there are a few.

    Cons

    BEWARE of ANY government position that is in the "Excepted Service". This means that although they technically do have provisions in place to protect employees from wrongdoers, those are just words on a sheet of paper in an employee manual. Surprisingly, the courts are some of the worst offenders. Applying for a court postion? Ask HR for their EEO statics. You won't get them You will be told that they are not public record. Do you really want to work someplace that has to hide their abysmal record from you? Better to seek out jobs in the Competitive Service.

    Advice to Management

    Judges with double standards are bad judges. Do right by your employees across the board equally and fairly, not just the old white guys.

    Excellent on the job training, mentoring, pay and benefits. I absolutely loved working for the federal courts.

    Re-hire former employees who have a good track record instead of hiring new people! Create more job opportunities.

    I worked at US Bankruptcy Court part-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Good people, great learning experience. Lots to see and consider. Ideal introduction to litigation, with some helpful insight into finance, lending, etc.

    government budgets fluctuate, so that creates some uncertainty. Also, article III judges and article I judges sometimes don't see eye to eye.

    Advice to Management

    continue to incorporate leading technology, encourage employees to seek training while on job, and do what you can to help pro se litigants.

    Pros

    My coworkers were great people and the place felt like home. You couldn't ask for a better group of people.

    Cons

    Not a lot of room for upward mobility but that's due to extremely low turnover. Change happens when someone retires.

    Advice to Management

    Keep doing what you've been doing.
