The management really care about their employee's well being and professional advancement. Team building, training and career assistance are available for the asking. Work life balance is important as well.

at intergrow you meet vast amount of people from different countries per them hiring agriculture students around the world. the work is very laboring and you will get dirty. While there is incentive with peace wages, management likes to not appropriately compensate due to one reason or another. I would give 4.5 stars for the people alone, but you are often fighting to meet managements weekly goals while piling yourself with stress to do the work assigned to you. granted you will receive help if unable to complete said assignments but not before being pressured about productivity.

Decades of under funding and a balkanized organization structure has led to poorly qualified and over compensated middle and upper management to lead through cronyism and favoritism while experienced GS-5 through GS-9 languish at the lowest possible pay scales and at conditional status year after year even as freshly minted college grads rise quickly through the ranks with little or no skills and are given permanent employment status over more experienced and senior staff.

This is probably the greatest job I have ever had. Coming from some less "employee friendly" private company jobs, the culture within the government is totally different. They ask employees how they are doing, what they want, where do they want to go in their career, etc is amazing! That isn't to say that all of the managers are great, they aren't - some are awful. But, there are tons of government jobs to move around to. Just be flexible on your location.

To fit in well at DOI you must not have any personal work ethic. If you outperform your peers you will be punished with additional work. They will call you at home demanding free work when you are on leave or ill. At the management level every one is in charge but no one is responsible. Policies and directives are usually vague enough to be meaningless. But when projects inevitably fail, they make sure the blame rolls downhill to those who actually worked the hardest. But it is a great place for posers and slackers.
