Great agency mission, but management/culture issues
Legal Assistant/Paralegal (Current Employee) –  Washington, DCFebruary 11, 2019
HUD and its various program offices have a phenomenal mission of working to provide affordable housing throughout nation. Very hardworking and committed staff, but significant management issues work to impair work-life balance and overall employee satisfaction.

The Department of Housing and Urban Development is a huge bureaucracy and the pace is very slow. Though the government employees are very nice, I prefer working in a fast-paced environment.

Enforcement Analyst
Enforcement Analyst (Former Employee) –  New York, NY 10278July 8, 2018
Typical day included management of a very large number of financial and physical referrals. Review of referrals to determine validity. Extensive analysis of financial statement. Interviews of property owners, managers, CPAs and attorneys.

Preparation of closeout reports. Negotiations with interested parties (internal and external) to resolve compliance and contractual findings and observations. The Departmental Enforcement Center was an elite group of professionals recruited in 1997 from across HUD. Enforcement Center staff were extremely proficient and dedicated to public service at the highest level.

The Enforcement Center had a very large workload which was challenging. The most enjoyable aspect of my job was the ability to improve the lives of people in multifamily housing and having reduced the level of waste and in efficiencies by corporate recipients of federal funds.

Very fast paced work environment
Secretary/Mortgage Closing Clerk (Former Employee) –  Baltimore, MDJune 27, 2018
The mortgage credit branch at HUD had a flexible start time each day. You signed in when you arrived in the morning and eight hours later you signed out; it was on an honor system. The job itself was fast paced and interesting. I came to the division without any knowledge of how a loan is processed and came away with a complete knowledge of the loan application and review process. I would have stayed if the job had not been a part time permanent position with the chance of benefits but the government at the time had restricted permanent full time positions.
Pros
Informative and fast paced
Cons
No chance of full time permanent positions with benefits

Too many retirement eligibles preventing progress
Contract Oversight Specialist (Former Employee) –  Washington, DCMay 31, 2018
The "HUD Way" is there to stay since over 50% of the leadership and staff seems to be eligible for retirement but have nothing but HUD and their HUD paycheck to look forward to. HUD runs away younger, educated, veteran, and motivated employees because of their HR practices and inability to support the drive and motivation of "non-baby boomer" employees.
Pros
Close to I-395
Cons
It's HUD... nothing will change until their is change at the top of each program, directorate, and division within the organization.
