The Partnership for Public Service has released the results of a study which ranked the best places to work within the federal government in 2011.
The results are based off of responses recorded by the Office of Personnel Management’s Employee Viewpoint Survey. In total, 266,000 employees (a 49.3 percent response rate) took part in the electronic survey, varying from 33 large agencies, 34 small agencies, and 240 agency subcomponents.
The results were then broken into specific demographics and once analyzed, were ranked as the 10 best “large agencies” and “small agencies” to work for. The results are as follows:
- Federal Deposit Insurance Corporation
- Nuclear Regulatory Commission
- Government Accountability Office
- Smithsonian Institution
- Social Security Administration
- State Department
- Intelligence community
- Office of Personnel Management
- General Services Administration
- Surface Transportation Board
- Defense Nuclear Facilities Safety Board
- Federal Mediation and Conciliation Service
- Peace Corps
- Farm Credit Administration
- Overseas Private Investment Corporation
- Federal Labor Relations Authority
- Commodity Futures Trading Commission
- National Endowment for the Humanities
- Federal Trade Commission
As a whole, agencies scored 64 out of 100 on employee satisfaction and commitment, which is down one point from 65 last year.
