Data Transcriber (Former Employee) –  Kansas City, MOMay 16, 2018
Loved working here. Huge place with hundreds / thousands of people working. Seemed a little like a warehouse full of people, but everyone worked well together. Always department parties going on and competition to keep you excited.
Pros
Department pot lucks constantly, able to visit with co-workers while working
Cons
Noise is sometime to hard to deal with, there are lots of people working around you.

Examines Bank Loans and other banking procedures
Bank Examiner, Intern (Former Employee) –  Houston, TXNovember 16, 2017
Examined and balanced cash from teller's drawers, examined documents for proper consumer disclosure (i.e. did a document have a contact number for resolving disputes), examined physical security measures (i.e. placement of alarms, security cameras, phones, etc.), examined loans for proper documentation and risk assessment, examined internal and external audit procedures and verified accuracy. All of this was done with a team on site at the bank being examined. The most difficult part of the job was having to hold banks in noncompliance when there was a demonstrated effort and significant progress toward correcting a deficiency. Most of the actual duties of this job were enjoyable particularly learning lion risk assessment.
Pros
Government job
Cons
salaries not competitive with private industry. Bureaucracy.

My Home for nearly 8 years
Windows Server Engineer (Current Employee) –  Hyattsville, MDMarch 17, 2015
What started as a summer job became my career.

My role has changed and evolved over the course of my time with the Treasury. Most recently, I have worked in an R&D position, developing solutions for upcoming circumstances or changes. This includes a great deal of time using Microsoft System Center Configuration Manager for many purposes: application packaging, OS deployment, software updates deployment (patching), reporting.

The greatest challenge I have experienced in my career with the Treasury is determining ways to convey upcoming challenges to management, by way of our governance process. Often times, they would not understand my concerns until a problem had fully presented itself. This means our operations were often reactive rather than proactive.
Pros
benefits, flexibility, training, networking
Cons
bureaucracy
