‘You’re a fed and you get a month of leave after 3 years. At this OHO component, you get lots of extra hours offered but that’s also their understaffing/overtasking work model at play’

‘You’re one of the few areas of American labor that still gets a pension. However, all new hires are contributing 4.4% of their paycheck which is a lot more than people hired prior to 2013 have to pay in. I suppose it’s worth it in the long run because, if you’re like most people nowadays, you probably have parents who are lucky if they have a 401k plan. Also we get TSP which is our particular government 401k. People seem to like it. Always put aside enough to get all the matching aka “free money” as retirement management companies call it. That’s my only advice.’
The flexible schedule, pay for the job duties, generous sick days, vacation days and paid holidays are non compatible. Federal employees, from my experience and opinion, have nothing to complain about, most have never worked in the private sector and have no idea the struggles of being laid off without notice, no raises or COLA, or having medical into retirement. There were no struggles in my job working for the SSA!
Nothing bad at all. Its amazing
Working from home is the best thing
The TSP is so good!
Job stability and work life balance.
Blue Cross Blue Shield Health Insurance, Delta Dental, 401K
The best thing about the organization is the pay, time off, and work life balance. The work is strenuous and never ending. If you learn to manage your time well, it won't be too stressful.
Great benefits, annuity, tsp, paid annual leave, paid sick time, ability to earn credit
Covers all and for a reasonable price
You get to work extra hours for time in the form of credit time or religious comp time (which you can practically make up a holiday for a day you designate as needing time off). However, this “benefit” is a part of their work model so they can underhire at the OHO component and overload you with tasking
