Excellent Company
Clerk (Former Employee) –  Guaynabo, PROctober 1, 2018
IRS was a fantastic place to work. I do think that employee's day to day experience depending heavily on their direct report and attitude. Overtime is not allowed so the schedule was very routine. Customer Service all the time.
Pros

Contact Representative (Former Employee) –  Oakland, CAAugust 15, 2018
Continuously Busy

Learned how to be compassionate when others were not

Management differs in approach depending on each department

Work place is open competitive and stressful

The hardest part working there is being presed for time when you want to help people resolve their issues

The most enjoyable part is when you can find people to be friends with together

A secure place to work
Revenue Officer (Former Employee) –  Oakland, CANovember 4, 2018
Good people, but it just was not for me. Internal policies and procedures were everchanging and very frustrating to navigate at times. If you don't care about anything more than your paycheck then you will like it.

Regulatory Policy Advisor (Current Employee) –  Washington, DCAugust 12, 2018
The Treasury is, generally, an okay place to work. You'll get to be part of a large team that does things with national and global impact.

Among different government departments, it seems to be one of the better places to work. (I've heard.)

Irs
Tax Examiner (Current Employee) –  Seattle, WAMay 8, 2018
I am a contract employee so I might not be able to tell you about long term review.
I found that the IRS just wants warm seats in the chairs to process the issues and claims.
The training was unacceptable for the information we could access about taxpayers.
I learned a lot about tax info and what the taxpayer needs to take care of any problems or where to send them to do so.
How to reduce their payment and amount of taxes to pay.
I did not work in a call center, I worked on audits that were flagged for review. Correspondence with taxpayers if needed. Took a lot of unhappy calls, some very very unhappy calls.
Worked with taxpayer to the extent I could to help them.
Pros
Meetings were speaking your mind was heard
Cons
No communication between managers and employees

teamwork
Contracting Officer (Former Employee) –  Oxon Hill, MDJune 27, 2018
I work on a team where shared knowledge is valued. With a varying backgrounds, mentoring the junior-level and middle-level Contract Specialists and even Contracting Officers are daily duties. Occasionally, Contracting Officer Representatives (COR) must be reminded of their delegation authorities, as to what is/is not their COR delegation authorities directing first to their delegation letters.

Daily, I try to see and find the value in everyone. Mostly, I try have the team and/or peers to see their own valued-added to projects that were positively re-shaped or pushed forward to completion.

There is a way to mentor, train, and educate a team and individual peers to be equipped, esteemed, and encouraged without them feeling put-upons or belittled. The outcome results can be win-wins.

A satisfied team or peer is the firm foundation which solid blocks are built.
Pros
interesting work
Cons
more best practice needed to streamline

Hardest Part
CONTACT REPRESENTATIVE (Former Employee) –  Richmond, VAAugust 7, 2018
There is a ton of reading and research for your entire shift. You are required to show proof of the answer you provided to the taxpayer. You must be very analytical with the information on IRS internal intranet and detailed oriented.

Sr. Business Analyst, GS14 (Current Employee) –  Washington, DCJuly 31, 2018
The experience varies based on the day to day leadership, people and culture encountered. It can range from stellar to distressed depending on the organization despite governmental laws. It is really about culture
