Someone (in authority) told me that it was possible to make
6 figures within 5 years, but I'm sure that is very
difficult.  Someone else who used to work there told
me that the turnover rate is 50%.  Yet I know of people who
have worked there for at least 20 years and are at
the top.

I'll bet it's not as bad as some of the other jobs
I've held.   Tongue

Maybe it is, maybe it isn't.  I've worked here for 15 years and have been a primary for more than half of that.  The flexibility is nice but don't expect to be treated like a professional or to feel "valued".  No one goes around patting you on the back.  And things look like they're going to H*LL in a handbasket with all the changes coming down for the new fiscal year.  As far as teleworking, it's only for GS-14 primaries.  So you'll have to do your time before you get a go at that little dandy.  Good luck to all of you.

Different light does not mean miserable.   The point is just that you will have a different perspective on the meaning and relevance of the questions you are now asking.
