NURSE COORDINATOR/ EMPLOYEE HEALTH (Former Employee) –  Los Angeles, CANovember 25, 2018
This is a tough gig. Takes months to complete application, need several live-scans, ink fingerprinting, lots and lots of paperwork. Its the Feds, after all. The office was nice, small, comfortable. Lots of work usually, pre employment physicals, vision/audiometry, EKG,phlebotomy, travel vaccines, TB testing, mask fitting for the ATF.The clientele mostly just young hard working folks, IRS/DEA/FBI/other Federal agencies that were referred. Emphasis on complete documentation, and every exam was specific to the agency, so a lot of nitpicking.I also did all the inventory and ordering of supplies for the clinic. I enjoyed my time there, until the Regional Manager was moved into the office,and micromanaged everything, NOPE> You know its not a good sign when a new manager sweeps in and starts throwing people's food out of the employee refrigerator. I had to move on, Im not interested in working somewhere I have to constantly be walking on eggshells.
Good luck if you do decide to take it on. It may just fit you.
Pros
Federal government, secure employment
Cons
Small work environment, can be claustrophobic

FOH has to rebid yearly which adds uncertainty to the work environment, including salary. The work experience is broad and fulfilling and usually low stress.

Wow!
Administrative Assistant/Account Manager Assistant (Current Employee) –  Salt Lake City, UTNovember 7, 2018
Some can get away with what they want, others cannot. False reporting time card hours, dress inappropriate, unprofessional dress standards for those who are not golden, leadership turns their backs no matter what. Some have integrity and core values while the ones put into leader positions are the ones ripping them off.
Pros
Federal Holidays Off
Cons
Leadership

Registered Nurse (Current Employee) –  Kearneysville, WVJune 7, 2018
There are multiple schedules and flexibility with FOH if you are willing to travel. The pay is competitive but the benefits themselves aren't that great

MEDICAL RECORDS TECHNICIAN, FEDERAL (Current Employee) –  Salt Lake City, UTApril 10, 2018
Better managed now however this place is largely disorganized with not enough communication to make it an appealing place to work. Also, when there are conflicts they do not get taken care of, they are swept under the rug.
Pros
Decent benefits but not great. Flexible work hours
Cons
Disorganized, bad communication

My work experience was mainly positive with the many wonderful employees and managers I served over the past 10 years
Federal RN Contractor (Former Employee) –  Andover, MADecember 12, 2017
My position involved running the health unit evenings. My evening shift at the IRS health unit was filled with patient visits. The IRS employees had the benefit of being able to visit with a nurse to discus their health concerns and be treated with over the counter
meds and bedrest per protocol. I was a provider of emergency care with the help of the security staff in the building. We had free BP and blood sugar testing, free labs for cholesterol etc., vision screening, flu clinics. Management was not present at site and was provided through phone call and conferences. Commute could be a problem due to highway travel. The employees were the best part of the job-appreciative of all services provided.

Overworked, Underpaid, Poor Management
Acting Operations Lead Manager (Former Employee) –  Bethesda, MDSeptember 10, 2017
Management disregards employee feedback. Decisions take too long to implement. Hard work results in low or no credit, no bonus or pay raise in years. Contractors have no job security.

Work experiance and satisfactions vary greatly depending on which agencies you work at.
RN Supervisor (Former Employee) –  Dallas, TX 75202August 25, 2017
Normally low stress where I was at the EPA. The work relationships with the clients and area nurse manager can be very positive. It can also be very busy depending on the facility you work for. There can be a great difference in clinics as far as patient load; amount of physicals and number of walk in patients. I found staffing to be inconsistent with the variables.
Pros
Much less stressfull than the hospital environment
Cons
In clinics with limited personel, there is difficulty getting time off when needed.

High level of independence and great occupational health experience
Nurse Coordinator (Current Employee) –  WAApril 18, 2017
I actually love working here. I am a nurse coordinator (read: nurse manager) at a very busy clinic. The patients are respectful and pleasant to work with. The federal government systems are a little behind the times, technology is not up to speed and all the charting is on paper but it's manageable. We see some walk-in urgent care cases but mainly the function of the clinic is to do employment physicals on a wide variety of federal law enforcement officers. The pay is pretty good, benefits are ok (you're not a direct fed employee but rather a contractor), the schedule is stable M-F normal business hours. Occupational health nursing is perfect for me, so much less stressful than the hospital!

unrealistic and horrible management
Occupational Health RN (Former Employee) –  OklahomaDecember 30, 2016
No raises in past 8 years with below area average for wages. No annual performance appraisal and no chance for upward mobility. Upper management has no understanding of the work load or even how to perform the basic jobs of the clinic nurses in most cases. Constant negative communication from manager with constant demands for increased workload with no additional staff or hours allocated and consistently pushing unpaid overtime on staff nurses and/or clinic coordinators in order to meet unrealistic demands. Staff held responsible for tasks they have no control over. Constant staff turnover and with required security clearance it takes approximately 4 months to get new staff onboard. Guidelines change daily if not hourly. Upper management blames contrator for problems and contractor blames management with staff caught in the middle. CEO states he is open to feedback and questions but does not followup or address concerns when brought to him.
Pros
day job, if you ignore demands for unpaid overtime
Cons
too many to list-see review

Nurse Coordinator II (Current Employee) –  MissouriMay 10, 2016
Busy clinic, operating hours 0730 to 1600, open during the lunch hour for emergencies. Office area is nice, clean and well-maintained; Clients are usually easy to work with and pleasant and grateful to have nurses in the building. Difficult part of the job is trying to maintain staffing budgeted hours and performing the amount of work that needs to be done within those hours. Hiring process takes months to get security clearance and processed in, which is very difficult to bring in new people, especially when you need someone within a two week time frame. Increasing amount of paperwork for nurses, etc. Takes time away from actual care. Sometimes it seems like ideas are brought to the table and presented before they are thought all the way through...creating numerous changes and more paperwork for the nurses. Difficult to keep up.
Pros
Decent hours
Cons
No raises, no performance evaluations, pay decreased
