Support from management

Leadership from the political appointees is lacking. Career employees do their best to keep things afloat, but the politicals routinely throw up obstacles.

Teamwork

Most of the career employees, especially in the field offices, are dedicated to the agency's mission and work well as a team to achieve its goals.

Overall compensation for your work

It's a government job.

Company Image

One former agency administrator took us down a bad road a few years ago when trying to implement new regulations. Our reputation took a hit and we still haven't fully recovered.

Inclusive / Diverse

In an attempt to "promote diversity" the agency has hired a number of employees who simply cannot do the jobs they were hired to do. This makes it difficult for the rest who have their own jobs to do but are pulled down by those who can't function in the workplace.

Suggestions for improvement

  • Focus on hiring highly qualified people rather than people that simply make your diversity numbers look good.

What I like about the company

Work/Life Balance is outstanding. The work can be challenging but serves a worthy purpose. The agency helps U.S. farmers get a fair shake in global marketplace.

What I dislike about the company

Failure to keep up with changes in industry. We are behind the times in our regulations and need to update them. This makes things difficult when interacting with the public as they often don't understand why we can't do something about a certain situation. It is often because the law limits our ability because it is stuck somewhere between the 1920's and 1970's.
