Learned a lot but non hiring to replace retired employees for 3 years in a row put a strain and increase work load on everyone , therefore Exodus occu
Pros: good employee environment
Cons: not much room for advancement and management not committed to helping employees succeed
From the standpoint of learning a lot and was the 'Vice President of the National Treasury Employees union and later became a Labor Relations Specialist, things were good. Management as a whole was not bad but there were some who just did not care about the advancement of their employees. Therefore, the culture was not good. Non- hiring of people to replace retirees because of so-called 'budget retraints' resulting in a Massive exodus of colleagues whose work load increased two- fold. People became burnt out and left. However, it was an honor working for the Government.
I would work there again under the right circumstances but having come from the Corporate world, I was missing it and now will prefer going coming back to the Corporate world. It is nice to be well rounded by working for both the Government and the Corporate world.
