    I have been working at US Bureau of Labor Statistics

    Pros

    Lots of smart people, decent pay and benefits, telework is becoming more accepted, lots of positions for IT specialists, great commuting location across from Union Station (VRE, Metro, MARC). Credit time, flexible work hours, relaxed work environment

    Cons

    LAN office is slow to respond, has high turnover. IT environment is not good for contractors, but okay for government employees.

    Advice to Management

    Keep turnover lower by offering more opportunities for promotions to GS-13 and GS-14. Continue to promote telework and improve the telework technology to reduce employee frustration with the technology
