    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.

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