    It looks good on a resume.

    Good place to start, but not the place to stay.

    Pros

    Good place to start and learn the fundamentals of Auditing; rotation program allows folks to work within any functional area of Government Auditing you choose.

    Cons

    Toxic culture; overpacked office (kind of gross actually to have that many ppl packed into one office); rumor mill; alot of bitter older employees sitting around waiting for retirement.

    Use them for what you can and run!

    Pros

    The IG looks really good on your resume. You will learn a lot which will give you a competitive edge above all auditing agencies out there. The travel locations can be fun. It's easy to move from a GS-7 to a GS-12 within a three year period.

    Cons

    The culture within the audit community is very cut throat. The work-life balance is terrible (the culture is mainly for people who want to work all day and have no life). Majority of the people in the agency are unhappy however many are too lazy to apply elsewhere. They have made it more restrictive to get above a GS-12. The journeyman to a GS-13 is subjective and it's up to your director and manager's discretion. Therefore, you might as well compete and go elsewhere rather than waiting years. Many of the senior leaders are racist.

    Unique Experience, Good Pay and Promotion, Bad Management

    Business Outlook

    Pros

    If you perform well (or even average), you will get promoted quickly and can make your way from a GS-7 (50k/yr) to a GS-13 (100k/yr) in 4 years flat (auditors). Additionally, if you are interested in the Government or Military (as subject matters), it is a unique and rewarding experience.

    Cons

    This organization is the definition of government bureaucracy—no matter how long a given task or project should take, employees should expect double that amount of time. People who become senior managers often do so just because they were willing to stick around the longest, not because they are the most talented. They do not value individuals, and would rather just have a body in a chair than cater to even the simplest of "human" requests. The way things have always been done is more important than improvements that could be made. Lastly, this might not be important to some people; however, a common sentiment is that what we do does not make any real difference to the Department.

    Pros

    Moving up is every year if you come in as a 7 or 9. You feel every second of that year.

    Cons

    You cannot trust what you’re told, they will lie to get you in door. Once you work for the organization you are stuck.
