    Pros

    Have been at the Mint for 5 years and really enjoy it. You ever take work home with you and wages are fair

    Cons

    Nepotism runs rampant. Several managers are hired strictly because they come from the outside and are not "tainted" by the current culture of the Mint.

    Advice to Management

    Appraisal process needs to carry more weight towards promotions. Several top performers seem to not care due to their rating being equal to the less motivated employees

    Pros

    Free parking, lots of food options nearby

    Cons

    The individual employees have no say in what happens to them. The Union and so called "ombudsmen" are a joke....flunkies to management. I once even overheard the Chief Council bragging about how many grievance and eeo claims his attorneys had snubbed out in favor of management. They know the employees get screwed but they know who pays their pay checks. Very one sided atmosphere.

    Advice to Management

    Keep patting yourselves on the back, stomping out valid employee complaints and cashing your checks.

    Great federal agency to work for.

    I have been working at US Mint full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    The pro is a paycheck and the fact that biweekly pay keeps me out of the soup lines. I would not recommend this place to my enemy. If you value your career, DO NOT apply for any of the human resources jobs currently posted for the United States Mint.

    Cons

    Senior management knows about the concerns of the staff yet they continue to nothing. The working conditions at the Mint are deplorable. Thank goodness for social media; makes the ability to share that terrible place with the world just that much easier.

    Advice to Management

    If you elect not to listen, then be mindful of the benefits of social media.
