It depends on the manager as it does with every company. There are plenty of chances for advancement. They have flexible work schedules depending on the department needs. I have worked there 14 years, working at home for 10 of those years.

No, mgr has her faves and will give them easy workloads and special projects. She does not seek input nor reward outstanding work. Very reactive mgmt instead of proactive. Short staffed, most employees feel over worked but are afraid to speak up.

In our Dept, favoritism prevails. Mgr has her "pets" and they get easy workloads and use their free time to watch movies, play candy crush and assist the mgr with her work, which is outside their job description. It's very frustrating and you will not be rewarded for your work ethic, great ideas or asking for work equity.

National Government Services (NGS) is a joke, so be very careful there's no 'NGS' within the job advertisement you apply for because it's not worth it to go there. They lie about the job, and are operating on a shoe-string budget where you have to bring in your own office supplies. There's no perks like in other offices. NGS operates off federal contracts and their business proposal people (old white men) are so stupid that they only bid on 1 contract at a time, and they lost a TON of contracts over the years because of that...and it'll get worse because they won't fire these old men who aren't qualified to bring in business. People are losing jobs and the office budget keeps cut more and more. It's so tight that you're not allowed to print anything in color because toner is $$, so they lock it down to only managers being able to print in color. Also, the office supply cabinet is locked (and sparse) so you really do have to bring in items for your desk. If they're not laying everyone off, they're telling people to work from home so they can rent out the buildings. No one is allowed to use the empty floors, even the bathrooms because well, NGS might get charged for the flushes and the lights turned on for the bathroom--oh no! Unlike the downtown Indy offices where they treat employees to huge catered lunches, you get none of that at the NGS office. There's absolutely no perks there. They have golf outings for the men, but nothing for the women; it's a sexist office. I saw some amazing people be worked to the bone, then quit out of exhaustion. The male bosses lack empathy and force an asinine amount of work on people because one of the main bosses is an elderly factory/manufacturing boss---who honestly shouldn't be in management in the first place because he's always yelling at someone. The slogan of "Be easy to work with" is an Anthem slogan, but this office is nothing like Anthem. There's no accountability for some people who don't do any work, but because of favoritism they get away with it. NGS is exactly the type of place you'd expect Indiana to be; backwoods, uneducated, exploitative Republicans who have no respect for their workers who brag about all the guns they own and what gun range they go to. Because of the telecommuting within the office, you'll also not get responses or good teamwork from those who have been at the company the longest---and management won't touch those people.

Everyone is not treated fairly. There is favoritism which results in less qualified people working in management while more qualified associates are kept in the same positions for years with little to no room to advance. Ageism, sexism and racism exist here. Be prepared to do the work of two or three people while receiving the pay for one. You will not receive the proper training or resources to perform your duties. Pass on this company unless you want to be used and exploited.
