Pros: great work-life balance, management wants you to be successful
Cons: like any government organization, the position must be available in order to move up, but in time they do become available
There are many centers and institutes a part of the entire organization that would be phenomenal to work with. There is so much that goes into grants and research that given the opportunity, one would find to be very interesting and rewarding.

Very prosuctive workplace sometimes it's too busy, but worthwhile and rewarding.
PH Analyst (Current Employee), Washington, DCJanuary 24, 2013
Pros: leave and automatic increases
Cons: flexibility in particular offices and some management with no people skills
This is a very good agency to work for especially if you have a passion for helping others; however, it depends on what office you work for and what supervisor you end of having. The office has a great mission and I very much enjoy working in the office that I work in, but the management makes it hard to continue in that momentum and provide the kind of flexibility that is sometimes needed. Discord and problem solving is an issue as well as communication within the office. Overall it's a good place to work you make a good salary, have good benefits, and leave, but you have to weigh weather peace of mind is more important than a good salary.The best part of the job is being able to provide help where it is needed in the communities. I have learned that there is much needed help that should go directly to communities with populations of color and there is a lot of outreach needed there as well.
