Company Culture

As an employee who was compelled to testify before Congressional investigative committees about my chain of command, I'd say the 'culture' is toxic and poisonous.

Support from management

If you are a 'favored child' then all will be well. If you aren't - or if you rock the boat in any way - you will be passed over for promotion and assigned to busy work.

Office / Work Environment

You are expected to be available to answer emails throughout the day and night. Should you fail to respond, your eval will suffer.

Company Image

For the past 36 months or so, Washington Post articles have been published discussing the criminal and ethically forbidden behavior of leadership throughout the agency.

Job Security

The federal government is one of the most secure places to work. There is no risk of being fired - for anything.

Suggestions for improvement

  • Toxic leadership and years of ethical violations have created a permanently flawed environment. Unless and until all leaders involved (Front Office, HR, Admin, Budget, Investigations) are removed or reassigned, nothing will improve.

What I like about the company

The federal government is highly-secure and pays decently for middle-management and above.

What I dislike about the company

Being subpoenaed by Congressional investigative committees to testify against my chain of command.
