Representative in Tennessee
on September 20, 2021
I really hit the jackpot when it came to getting hired in my first federal position that happens to have a great supervisor. I can honestly say that I really have a manager that cares about how the staff is during in these unprecedented times and continuously teleworking during COVID 19 pandemic. On my first day I was assigned to a Senior worker to help me navigate my first year and it's been great since we aren't working in the office and difficult coming in to go straight to remote working. All of my coworkers get along for the most part and like any other environment you going to have issues within a group of people that comes from different backgrounds and span decades in ages. Seems like they work well together for the common goal of assisting our communities. The hardest part of the job is not being able to really see my coworkers a few times a week, they seem to have a lot of great office stories. The most enjoyable part is getting to help so many people in the state and community.

Excellent Job/Work balance. Great compensation and benefits. Almost impossible to advance within the organization as lower grade employees become a permanent underclass. Toxic narcissistic managers thrive in this environment because they are not held accountable for their actions. Managers also pit lower level employees against each other.
Administrative Secretary in Washington, DC

I began work here without clear understanding or instruction and was treated like a misfit. I was not given proper training from management. Then after a short while was blamed that it was due because of me.
Deputy Director Office of Loan Guarantee in Washington, DC Office of Native American programs
on April 26, 2021
The management within my office (Office of Native American Programs is negligent in their leadership and work abilities. The environment is an aggressive environment to spoil managers and abuse staff. All Directors within that office should be replaced. Awful people with no personnel or leadership abilities!
Account Executive in Jackson, MS

My opinion of the agency isn't good. The agency ceases to protect the government's interest. Caters more to it's partners-property owners and management companies.
