Suggestions for improvement

  • See previous answer. People with seniority get preference when that should not be the primary reason someone is gets a vacation or raise over someone else who may be more valuable and capable though newer to the company.

What I like about the company

Working remotely is good.
Healthcare is nice, but no dental.
401k match is good.

What I dislike about the company

Open air office = too noisy
People should be paid more if they are worth more to the company. Standard of living raises should happen every year or else I take a pay cut.

Suggestions for improvement

  • I would recommend more modern IT equipment and more focus on results and not process for process sakes.

What I like about the company

I have been able to expand my knowledge and experiences throughout my career while maintaining a healthy work life balance.

What I dislike about the company

I do not believe the men and women selected for management positions are always provided adequate training to enhance their leadership and management skills and are often selected for their technical expertise rather than their soft skills.

Suggestions for improvement

  • Better pay would be the first thing - many people struggle with making a living wage and the yearly raises are usually nothing or one percent. The IT function is a joke - most of the people working in IT in the government do not even have college degrees related to computers.

What I like about the company

The government does have some good things - the benefits are pretty good, the time off is good, the overall work life balance is good. The people you work with are decent and currently they are allowing some work at home options. So there are some benefits to working for the government. There are some negatives - lower pay, equipment provided by the lowest possible bidder, and overall poor morale. All in all it is a decent place to work and provides some very good insurance options.

What I dislike about the company

The pay is not the best. Often times the equipment and technology is actually poor. The benefits are good but you have to pay for large portions of the benefit. The employees are treated a little like cattle...don't expect them to ever go out of their way for you.
