    Doesn't Recommend

    I worked at US Department of Health and Human Services (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Easy to get a job, good experience in government auditing

    Cons

    Very top heavy, very few promotion opportunities, too much travel, takes too long for reports to be issued and by the time they are issued, over 2-3 years has passed since the period audited and nobody really gives a care about your recommendations and findings.

    Advice to Management

    Be sure your work is relevant and timely and has an impact!

    Pros

    Stable, not easy to get fired - almost impossible. Hires college students with no prior experience. 401(k) matching and a pension.
