Financial Assessment Manager (Former Employee) – Washington, DC – February 15, 2019
HUD was a good place to work. I enjoyed doing my job and supervising the staff that I had. It was a good experience. A typical day at work was busy with lots of calls. My manager was always very supportive of what I did. The hardest part of the job was dealing with auditors and the most enjoyable part of the job were the people.
Great agency mission, but management/culture issues

Enforcement Analyst (Former Employee) – New York, NY 10278 – July 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.
Loved working with them. Was given opportunity for advancement, education, training and career advancement. Co-workers were awesome, various activities to promote cooperation, tolerance and cultural diversity!
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.
Informative and fast paced
No chance of full time permanent positions with benefits

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.
Close to I-395
It's HUD... nothing will change until their is change at the top of each program, directorate, and division within the organization.
