    Interesting, but strange HR policies and stifling micromanaging

    Pros

    Work is interesting, people are very bright, see policy actually being made from the work you do.

    Cons

    Telework is allowed for only a few people. The agency is micro managed to a stifling degree. All employees need to clock in and out, which has a negative impact on creativity and morale. Most people are simply punching the clock. The agency does not follow OPM guidelines, so employees coming from other federal agencies tend to shocked by the lack of flexibility. There is very little career mobility here.

    Great place to work; don't stay forever!

    Pros

    Very collegial. Great place to conduct research on federal sentencing guidelines. The small office environment allows for you to shine on big projects

    Cons

    Working with high ranking and very intellectual legal professionals can be intimidated. With few employees, its sometimes too quiet or even creepy.

    Pros

    The hours are good, the office complies with all government regulations and the building is very secure. The location is also very convenient.

    Cons

    The work is sometimes tedious and sometimes the work produced isn't used- congressional reports. The office also does not have a ton of potential for promotions.

    Nice people, boring work

    Pros

    Getting to work with people who are smart, nice, and passionate

    Cons

    The work is incredibly boring. I was expecting to be doing and presenting statistical research, but instead it seems that research associates are professional data cleaners. The only statistics performed is basic descriptive stats, and even that is reserved for PhDs
