USDA...what can I say about the agency? Great fellow employees and we all exude teamwork. I love my coworkers. Great Benefits packages . The hardest part of the job is dealing with management. The most enjoyable part of the job are my fellow co-workers. The job is very mundane and it seems to be a lot of depressed people. I have been a part of the organization since 2004 and it has continued to dwindle down on employees. Management used to be awesome but now, Its not. And this isn't just from personal opinion. this is something told to us in an open meeting with the CEO. Another BIG problem is all the changes they are making to our complex, but nothing to benefit the employees like they used to. We consistently have to deal with a sewage stench, large rodents, bugs and spiders. The buildings have major plumbing issues as well as numerous leaks throughout the buildings. Its just not what it once was.And its sad to see it go down the way it has as an overall agency. Again, good benefits and good employees, but bad management and horrible facilities. And not to mention we are incredibly behind due to short staffing and they aren't hiring many people and consistently getting rid of people per this movement of "automation".
Good, hard working employees.
cafe, parking, management, the sewage problems, the rodents, the bugs.
