If you want great work life balance, great!
Financial Operation Specialist (Current Employee) –  New York, NYSeptember 14, 2018
This isn't the work environment for you if you started out in a corporate workplace. The federal government has its own way of getting the work done. If you are a go-getter, then I would recommend another industry. It's not a bad place to work, it was just a matter of different workplace philosophies.
Pros
work life balance
Cons
career advancement

It’s very rewarding at time
Direct Support Professional (Former Employee) –  Austin, TXSeptember 10, 2018
Management is horrible, pay is too low for the amount of things you have to do. It can be mentally an physically draining, it’s not a job where you get recognized for your hard devoted work.
Pros
Paid medical insurance
Cons
Management, pay, don’t help when you get hurt and need time

You can definitely strive and build your career working in the Federal sector at HHS. The programs are well funded to secure your future. Although, there are political challenges in Washington, DC it may have some fallout on policies that may affect regional offices.
