    I Really Really Really Hate My Job

    Current Employee - Anonymous Employee
    Current Employee - Anonymous Employee

    Pros

    Paycheck, going home on time, 4 weeks PTO, 6% 401k match

    Cons

    They force people to move all the time for no reason. They will either tell you that your job is now in the other main office, or they move the entire office 50 miles away. It is all politics, a$$ kissing, backstabbing, lying, favoritism and meaningless busywork. Bureaucracy abounds, and I still can’t figure out what half of the people do. Meetings, meetings, meetings, meetings. Lots of foreigners taking jobs away from Americans. The only reason I took the job and endured the boredom was for the short commute to Frederick, MD. I thought it was the last job I would ever need, so I will just put up with it for a few more years until I can retire. They moved the office to Reston, so I now spend 2 to 4 hours a day sitting in traffic jams to get to a job that I hate. I am trapped there by unmarketable job skills. They stick me with crappy assignments while incompetent a$$ kissers keep getting the good projects.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Focus on what people accomplish and not what time they get there or how many hours they sit in their cubicles.

    Pros

    Strong leadership, with great history. Company is invested in the employees, and provides ample opportunity for people to gain new experiences and learn new skills.

    Cons

    Upward mobility can be hampered by the fact that people do not often leave the organization. This is not through any fault of their own, but rather a result of being a good place to work and therefore difficult to leave.
