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.

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.
Travel, teleworking from home, commuter benefits
Due to downsizing of offices, workload has decreased overtime
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
