Complex, Fast-Paced Environment
Program Analyst (Current Employee), Baltimore, MDJune 2, 2013
Pros: great facility, friendly co-workers, flexible work schedules, health-centered employee programs
Cons: overcrowded parking, constantly evolving initatives, poor training for new employees
Working for CMS you will find that no two days are alike. That's due, in part, to the fact that a lot of the policies and procedures are very fluid and capable of changing at a moment's notice.

This is not as structured as an agency as its neighbors the FBI and SSA, but the people do try their best to deliver the critical health care services to the – more... American Public.

The hardest thing about this job is that one can find themselves working on a project intensely only to have the parameters change so much that the original deliverable is obsolete. That is incredibly frustrating.

Don't expect thorough training or mentoring there. Things and people move so fast that no one has time to spend walking new hires through processes and procedures. You're literally told, "Oh you'll figure it out", and with a pat on the back, they're gone.

Meetings in the agency seldom end on time. They're almost bound to run over. The agency doesn't believe in a 60 minute meeting. With as many meetings as they typically have, it's very easy to spend your entire work day in meetings, leaving you virtually no time to catch up on work that's been piling up on your desk. – less
