Administrative Assistant (Current Employee), Washington Dc – August 26, 2014
Working at Broadcasting Board of Governors I handle a variety of duties ranging from assisting the Division Director with day to day meetings, technical needs and travel arrangements. I also help with invoices, purchase orders and other financial statements with the other members of the administrative team. While working here I have learned about the – more... many different processes/ regulations within the government. I work with a team of people that allow us to accomplish one goal. The hardest part of my job is that it is not in the field that I am currently in school for. I am currently seeking my masters in IT Project Management, where there is a beginning, middle and an end. Even though i am very grateful to have a job, i realized that I love seeing projects through as appose to having the same work for the next 35 years. The best part of my job is learning new things, reading new regulations, guidelines and implementing them in my day to day tasks. – less
The worst place to work in the Federal Government.
Ms. Aurandt was a Financial Systems Analyst (Former Employee), Washington, DC – June 7, 2012
Pros: the pay was good.
Cons: horrible manager
Management does not care about employees in this organization. It has the lowest rating for management by OPM. The managers are horrible. The people in the Human Resources office lie. One of the women that I met in Human Resources is actually banned from touching the Human Resources for one entire part of the organization (through judicial proceedings).
I – more... would not work here. I was subjected to harrassment and a hostile work environment and management covered it up. I would stay in private sector, you make more money and they care more about their employees. I came from the private sector and there was a HUGE difference in management style. Maybe I just had a bad boss but I think the OPM ratings reflect the poor management is a widespread issue. – less
