    I have been working at Federal Government full-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    Self scheduling, Federal holidays and all the latest equipment and technology for the patient's benefit. If it will heal or make the length of stay better for the patient and their families by even one day, the cost is not too great. This is where you want to bring your loved one's for their care, because the staff really take care of you 24/7.

    Cons

    the parking has been bad since before the beginning of time and with the addition of all the new facilities and buildings, it has not gotten any better. This hospital loses great staff because they get very frustrated being told that they can't park on base and that they have to pay out of pocket to come to work.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    The addition of parking garages is a must as wells as the forethought to cutting edge facilities. If you build it, they will come!

    good job and security

    I have been working at Federal Government full-time (more than 10 years)

    Pros

    The work is interesting and I have a lot of freedom to handle cases the way I want to at the administrative level. The type of work takes years of practice to learn all the nuances, so it stays interesting and never gets dull. There are great opportunities to move around the world, if I choose.

    Cons

    Sometimes I don't have control of cases when they get to federal court. The bureaucracy can be quite dusnting, at times. Salaries are limited to pay scales and not necessarily based on one's work, though the salaries are good.
