For those looking for a career change, and thinking about public service, they may be asking: "What are the best places to work in the federal government?". This site, developed by the Partnership for Public Service and the Institute for the Study of Public Policy Implementation, answers that very question in copious detail. The study uses data from the Office of Personal Management's 2002 Federal Human Capital Survey, in which a "Best Places to Work" index was created to measure overall employee satisfaction. A FAQ section is a good place to start as it features information about searching the rankings, what the rankings mean, and how the rankings were done. Getting down to the rankings, visitors can search rankings for 28 cabinet-level departments, independent agencies, and subagency level rankings as well. Visitors can also find out which places are best to work at for persons under 40, or by looking at places ranked by gender or minority status.
