Contract Oversight Specialist (Former Employee) – Washington, DC – May 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.

It's HUD... nothing will change until their is change at the top of each program, directorate, and division within the organization.
Great Place to Make a Difference in Communities and Lives of Millions of Americans
Social Science Analyst (Former Employee) – Washington, DC 20410 – April 23, 2018
If you value housing as an important factor in improving peoples' lives, HUD is a great place to work. Like any federal agency, there are many separate business units that serve specific agency policies, priorities, and functions; and they all add up to an important role in service to our country. As in any government agency, the organizational structure is pretty flat with few opportunities for career advancement, but the pay, benefits, job security are solid. The best location in which to work for HUD is at headquarters in Washington, DC... the main pitfall there is management, which tend to be subject matter experts, some of which have no people skills and no business being managers. As with any job, it is best to learn how to manage up, and take your career by the horns--that way, you can reduce the effect poor management has on your career path and overall outlook on working at HUD
Work life balance, pay, great service to country, noble objective
poor management, flat organizational structure, slow career progress
Portfolio Management Specialist (Current Employee) – Boston, MA – March 1, 2018
HUD is behind the times and does not adequately address affordability in housing. Management is stuck in the past and does not think outside the box. Bureaucratic limitations often impede meaningful change.
Enjoyed working with a diverse field of HUD Employees
Senior Project Management Specialist (Current Employee) – San Francisco, CA 94107 – February 14, 2018
As a Project Manager for HUD, I was fortunate to been given the opportunity to manage and oversee a variety of projects enhancing my skills in budget tracking, communication skills, risk management, scheduling and project coordination with a diverse team of experts in Architectural design, contracting and procurement work. It is most rewarding upon the completion of a project, seeing the end product and ultimately satisfying our internal customers. In my jurisdiction of responsibility, I was able to travel to Regional Offices within California, Phoenix, Hawaii and mid-states and attend conferences in collaboration with my counterparts region-wide.

General Clerk (Current Employee) – PG County Maryland – February 12, 2018
It's a good place to work . My Co-workers are easy to get along with and very helpful. I learned a lot about the Section 8 process. My manager is great , very understanding and fair The hardest part of the job is when you have to tell homeless people and mother with children that there is no housing available. The most enjoyable part of the job is , when they get together and bring dishes of food . They sure do like to eat there.
Housing Project Manager (Former Employee) – Los Angeles, CA – January 14, 2018
When I started with HUD the goal was to assist the low income and unfortunate people. As time went on it seem that helping people became less important. It was a very rewarding job and I felt that I was helping people. But once again money was more important than assisting the needy. So it was time for me to leave. But working there was very interesting. We all worked together as a famiy.
worked on your own, 4 day weeks and could work from home.
constant changes and demands became very stressful
A great place to work with an opportunity for career development.
Management Analyst (Current Employee) – Washington, DC – January 9, 2018
A typical day starts with monitoring the Directives in-box to review and respond to comments received from departmental staff and external interest groups.
I’ve learned that each day comes with its own challenges and that we should always be flexible enough to shift priorities when necessary, make adjustment and work collaboratively to meet intended goals.
The most enjoyable part of my job is that great sense of value I feel whenever I can holistically work with program offices through difficult projects, from start to finish, and unexpectedly they've responded with much thanks and gratitude.
The ability to participate in flexible alternative work schedule.

Chief of the Broadcasting Branch (Former Employee) – Washington, DC – January 3, 2018
I joined the diverse organizations comprising the pulse of the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development in 1989, and I was astounded by the efforts of so many offices and employees dedicated to the one goal of providing the basic right and need of housing and community development entrusted to this Presidential Cabinet level organizations mandate.
