Survey says: Federal workers are glad to have their jobs
By The Post's Ed O'Keefe and Joe Davidson:
In these times of high unemployment and economic uncertainty, federal workers are continuing a trend of job satisfaction, giving the Obama administration good marks for its leadership of agencies though remaining skeptical on a key point: that career advancement in the government is based on merit.
And in an ironic turn, the Office of Management and Budget, which is helping to lead the administration's pledge to reinvigorate the federal workforce, lost ground among its own employees on issues of leadership and job satisfaction.
The employee opinions are in the largest-ever survey of the federal workforce, and the first to be conducted by the Obama administration.
Three-quarters of respondents said they feel a sense of personal accomplishment, 8 in 10 like the work they do, and more than 90 percent think it is important. In addition, two-thirds of respondents said they're satisfied with their pay.
