Department of Health and Human Services Employee
in Falls Church, VA

"Unfulfilling"

What do you like about working at Department of Health and Human Services?

"It looks good on a resume and does allow you to work on projects that have interesting public health ramifications"

Do you have any tips for others interviewing with this company?

"No, since the majority of the hiring process occurs through the government's HR system and interviews are only a final step in the process"

What don't you like about working at Department of Health and Human Services?

"Because it is located in the nation's capital, adjacent to Capitol Hill, HHS attracts a good deal of over-educated and ambitious individuals. Since HHS only has enough high-level work for a limited number of individuals, most people are doing work that is administrative, not challenging, and below the level and quality of projects that they would be given elsewhere. Also, the bureaucratic nature makes it very difficult for any one voice to be heard. For those individuals interesting in making an individual mark, HHS is not a good place to go."

What suggestions do you have for management?

"I would suggest to get rid of the outdated and extremely hierarchical and militaristic manner in which HHS is run. Leave room for ideas from more 'junior' staff (and this means anyone not at least at the Deputy Director level-many of whom have PhDs, MDs, JDs and/or a great deal of professional experience)."
