Yearly, for in grade performance pay raises, effective first full pay period in January. Pretty much never do employees get the chance for out of cycle pay raises. Virtually all job promotion openings (to a higher band/grade level) are only available once a year, although lateral jobs are open regularly throughout the year without a change in pay.

Get rid of at least three layers of management - flatten the organization to no more than 4-5 layers of management. Upper and bottom levels of the agency accomplish a lot. Too much middle waste going on that acts as a huge bottleneck for moving the agency forward. Middle managers need to do low-level production work occasionally to get in touch with actually seeing the roadblocks low-level employees routinely deal with and recognizing which low-level employees either need specific training or need exposure to leadership training.

I liked going to work every day because I liked the people I worked with. However despite being highly trained and highly skilled, my work assignments were not challenging and frequently I had no real work to do. I came to work every day ready to work, and went home every day disappointed about the agency's lack of focus and direction.

Depends on what is going on around the world and which team you are assigned to. Sometimes steady and predictable with little change, and sometimes your best and fastest work performance is never enough and you are likely to feel burned out. It really depends on your work assignment location and work role assignment.
