    I worked at US Rural Development Business and Cooperative Programs part-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Diversity to work on own. and at times left to be creative. Outside or inside work is available plus you can work with and meet many public citizens in need of help or services. If you do your job you will be mostly left to do it without any micromanagement or harassment.

    Cons

    Usually have to find own projects to work on or else receive busy work. Some managers are retired in place and have only a retirement date in their plains. Others may have lost the ambition to carry on or seek new projects and new ideas.

    Advice to Management

    Treat everyone like you would want to be treated now...Not the way you were treated in the past if it was negative.

    Pros

    Helping people and businesses throughout State. Interesting programs offered to various businesses and universities to help drive job growth and creation.

    Cons

    State Office staff isn't interested in helping field staff execute goals programs, they are put off when you ask for assistance. Seems to be disconnect betweeen DC/National Office State Office & Area office where real work is taking place.

    Advice to Management

    Management doesn't seem to get it in having a lot of focus on annicelary goals that do not count for anything with regarding to program administration. Example. collect applications for programs which do not have any funding available just so we can have applications. Its a disservice to the general public to lead them on to collect applications for programs that do not have any chance of obtaining funding.

    Pros

    It has programs that can be very benefical to the rural areas. The programs can definitely enhance the quality of life in those areas.

    Cons

    The products that the organization has needs to be revamped to meet the new way things are done. It takes entirely to long for projects to get funded.

    Advice to Management

    The management needs to be aware of the new products in the marketplace and needs to ensure that the employees are arm with enough information about the positives of the program.
