"I've worked at SSA for the past two years. For the most part the training was very stressful and difficult to understand. Also the ability to move up into being a full BA was to strict and difficult. But overall I enjoyed the time that I had spent with my co-workers and boss. Overall I wouldn't say that it was a positive experience but it really was an interesting one."
"I worked for the social security administration for 10 months as a decision writer. The work I did involved a lot of detail oriented writing where knowledge of medical terms and legal terms is very important I appreciated having the opportunity to develop new skills and knowledge with them. They have to make decisions with limited information working under tight deadlines."

"Great company. Lots work. Tons of OT."
"Pay is low for hourly workers starting around $8/hr, and they're charged for meals daily (no brown-bagging). Open positions are almost never posted internally. FT positions are posted online with education requirements that hourly staff usually doesn't meet so they think they're not eligible. Then those spots are often filled by outsiders without degrees either. There is almost no ethnic diversity among middle management and higher. Poor management of individuals; few opportunities for promotion--they let an employee go because she requested a raise after over 2 years of work that was stated in her contract; cheap; dishonest."
"Best job I ever had. Very fair place to work with excellent benefits."
