EmployeeWorked at Bureau of Indian Affairs in Fort Duchesne, UT at the time of review.

What I like

Most everyone gets along and work well together as a team.

What I dislike

The select few that gossip and complain about irrelevant things.

Suggestions for improvement

Actually addressing the individual causing problems and not the entire staff in a staff meeting.

EmployeeWorked at Bureau of Indian Affairs in Dunseith, ND at the time of review.

What I like

Family like staff. Most employees have been here for years and we work well together.

What I dislike

Our administration is not always open to our concerns. We don not always get the supplies we have requested.

Suggestions for improvement

Committees for spending, so we get the supplies we need to do our jobs more efficiently.

Former EmployeeWorked at Bureau of Indian Affairs in Owyhee, NV until 2017.

What I like

Opportunity for travel and to develop as an officer.

What I dislike

That the officer has to provide evidence to prove innocence against complaints; whereas, the complainant only has to fill out a form and a statement.

Suggestions for improvement

Support their employees.

Company Culture

Rumors and lack of trust among employees.

Work-Life Balance

Always on "call" 24 hours, 7 days a week. Can't plan for family time.

Career Development

There is only 2 management positions in this location.

Overall compensation for your work

You do receive extra pay for call outs and overtime; however, it doesn't replace the amount of standby time waiting for the phone to ring.

Inclusive / Diverse

You are either in or out; however, when you are out, you can't get in.

Workplace Safety

First time being injured, seriously anyways, was due to lack of officers available.

Teamwork

Only between lower ranking officers.

Support from management

No support from management, have to prove your statement; however, the other party can lie without proof.

Office / Work Environment

Intense. While on probation, you can be literally dismissed for any reason.

Challenging Work

Not allowed to do your job.

Job Security

There is no job security, anyone that receives a complaint whether true or not, that employee can be dismissed or demoted.

Internal Communication

No communication between management and employees. I received a general rating; however, I apparently have been working below standards without knowing it.

Freedom to work independently

It a single officer response that also is how you can get injured and falsely accused of anything. Body/Dash camera is your only evidence; however, it is also limited.
