    "The Dead End"

    StarStarStarStarStar
     

    I worked at US Nuclear Regulatory Commission

    Pros

    It’s a federal government job outside of D.C.

    Cons

    Once you learn a job, you’ll be stuck in it and never learn anything else. You’ll also never get promoted because they already have too many people at high pay grades, with multiple relatives at the agency.

    Advice to Management

    Give hard working people with a lot of potential opportunities to grow.
