Stay away, it was a mistake for me
Technical developer (Current Employee) –  Northfield, ILJuly 23, 2016
Horrible directors and management for IS. Too many managers. All talks - but no work is done. Too many leaders in IT... Ignorant about any technical knowledge so they preferred to get job done by consulting companies.

Leadership don't trust employees so no place for growth or learning... Too many road blocks to get something done.

Do not waste your career!
Pros
Good salary and benefits
Cons
Too many BS.

I have been employed with the College of American Pathologists for 12 years now. Overall it is fast past, productive, and comfortable place to work. The company is family oriented and offers flexibility to aid in work-life balance. Most of the employees are friendly however there are number who come off as bullies. The culture has changed and the company has become top heavy with management. In some areas of the company there is no room for growth.

DC office-Most dysfunctional place I've ever worked
various (Former Employee) –  Washington, DCNovember 28, 2012
I have never worked in a more depressing, dysfunctional office, with so little communication, training, support, and teamwork in my 35 years in the workforce. Management doesn’t give you any info to do your job, or tell you where to get it, then blames you for not knowing. They’ll throw you under the bus so they look good. No matter which way you go, they micromanage you, then tell you it's wrong, you can't win. I've never worked anywhere past 12noon on the Wednesday before Thanksgiving, except this place. We don't have some Federal holidays off, like Martin Luther King Day - ridiculous, especially in DC! When a support person is doing a great job, they get fired, because the Office Admin. feels threatened.
Cons
management, disorganized, dysfunctional
